Kardamena Route on Kos IslandOur tip for this bike tour: If you have a lamp for biking and like to get up early, you can schedule this tour in a way that you are right at sunrise at the castle and can enjoy the magnificent view of Kardamena Bay and the wide Aegean Sea in a very special light!

The starting point of this easy cross-country tour is the roundabout at the small port of Mastichari. You leave the town on the smoothly rising road towards the airport. After 1.5km turn left onto a gravel road and then right again through an olive grove into the interior of the island.

From here, a 4km long ascent takes you to the plateau in the middle of the island, about 130m above sea level. Here you have to cross the main road to reach the fortress of Antimachia. It is the largest of four former St John's castles in Kos. If you wish, you can even carry your bike inside and follow the narrow paths inside the fortress wall (attention: many thorns!). From the castle you have a fantastic view of the south coast of the island with the village of Kardamena. In the distance you can see the Datҁa peninsula, which belongs to Turkey, as well as the Greek islands Tilos and Nisyros.

After visiting the castle, on the western side of the fort, you will find a narrow slab path that leads down to the plain of Kardamena. Now you pedal only a few metres further and you have arrived in the coastal town.

Tip for water fans: If you want to swim, go east along the coast (from the promenade to the left). Here are beautiful sandy beaches and there is also a bar!

Also in Kardamena itself there are sufficient possibilities for eating and drinking at the promenade and in the village, where you can have a deserved rest. If you follow the promenade to the right (westwards), you will reach a small bridge and as soon as you have crossed it, you simply stay directly on the coast towards the Kefalos peninsula. On the right, there are a few hotels and some small canyons. After approx. 2.5km turn right into one of the canyons and ride on passing the airport to the road to Kefalos in the centre of the island. The road to Kefalos you leave after 300m again in the direction of Plaka (signposted) and you will get into a small pine forest with wild peacocks. From here you ride through an uninhabited area back to the north coast of the island. The last meters on the beach promenade of Mastichari lead you back to the starting point.

And one last tip for this Kardamena Route: In the evening you can experience very beautiful sunsets in Mastichari, preferably in one of the local fish taverns or cocktail bars.
