The island of Kos in Greece is located just next to Rhodes Island, close to Turkey which you can see just across the water. The island is relatively small taking no more than an hour to drive from one side to the other. Kos town is very picturesque with plenty of charming traversers hidden away in it’s tree lined streets. There are some more ‘touristic’ areas in Kos but these are easily avoided. 
Kos is a superb destination for a Mediterranean Kitesurf holiday as it offers a short direct flight from many European airports, plus an easy transfer to your hotel.
Marmari is located just to the south west if Kos town by around 20 minutes drive. Marmari is best suited to a family Kitesurf holiday with a range of good beach front hotels with excellent kids clubs and faculties for younger children. For couples there are also some very stylish boutique hotels with fanatic Spa’s

The North wind, called the Meltemi, blows on-shore, slightly from the right onto the sandy beaches in Maramri. The best wind seasons is May to October with the best period late June to September. The wind tends to be lighter in the morning before building for stronger afternoon conditions.
