Best For – Beach lovers wanting to relax and wind down

Tingaki is a beautiful resort located 20 minutes drive from the famous capital, Kos Town. Tingaki is situated on the north coast where it is famous for some of the islands best beaches. It is also very well placed for getting out and about and seeing some of this beautiful island. With stunning scenery and green backdrops makes this a perfect destination to wind down and enjoy the scenery and slower pace of life. The locals in Tingaki are some of the nicest you will come across, so friendly and welcoming and try very hard to make your holiday perfect.

The beach is probably Tingaki’s biggest attraction, a long, wide, golden sandy beach, gently shelving into the crystal clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, absolutely fantastic for those wanting to paddle in the shallow waters and superb for families, a safe shoreline with plenty room to build sandcastles!! There is no water sports centre as such, however you can hire pedaloes and canoes etc. from the subbed hire people. There are plenty sun loungers and parasols available for hire and are well spread out so you wont feel over crowded. There is other beaches with more water sports just a short drive from Tingaki too, and its easy to get around with local bus service or cheap taxis.

The night-life in Tingaki is quite laid back, a typical night would be relaxing round the table, enjoying good food and maybe taking a wander through the cobbled streets to find a bar or café and more chat and watching the world go by. There are a good selection of bars, and cafés serving local beer, ouzo, wine and cocktails, you may even find the odd sports bar for those guys who need to keep up with the results. The restaurants tend to be traditional tavernas, offering local produce and maybe a spot of Greek dancing and the odd plate smashing, typical in Greece. And don’t forget, if you fancy a change of scenery or maybe a wild night on the tiles 20 minutes in a taxi and you will be in the cosmopolitan resort of Kos Town with a massive selection of bars, pubs and places to dine out. The choice is endless.

Tingaki is perfectly positioned to get out and about and view some of the attractions that make Kos a winner. Historically, you have ruins, churches, archaeological digs and castles to visit, many from as early as the 5th century. You have shops, boutiques and souvenir shops in most major resort and local markets where you can buy yourself local crafts and gold. There is water parks for the young and young at heart and then there is opportunities to venture across to other Greek islands such as Kalymnos or Rhodes and even across to Turkey too. Boat trips run daily and are a great way of getting around the island.

Get here before tourism takes over, its beautiful!
