Tingaki holidays are well suited to families who love to enjoy quality beach time during the day and laid back fun in the evenings. If you’re in the mood for something a little more upbeat then it’s just a short bus or cab ride to the bars and clubs in Kos Town.
The summer days are long and hot in Tingaki, with an average temperature of around 28˚C during July and August. Spring and late summer are cooler but still with plenty of sunshine.
Hippocrates International Airport is the only one on the island and is just over 15 minutes by car from Tingaki.

Tingaki is well known for being a chilled out and relaxing kind of place but don’t let that fool you into thinking there’s not much to do. Apart from the huge beach and clear waters, there are also water sports and nearby waterparks where you can have some top family fun. Tingaki is also well located for hitting the town in Kos or drinking in some culture (and local wine) in Zia and Mastichari.
With rides like the Blackhole, the Kamikaze and Space Bowl, the Lido Water Park just a few minutes down the coast from Tingaki is lots of fun for the kids (as well as mum and dad). There are regular transfers available to the park and back, and it’s a great way to spend a day. If you can manage to tear yourself away from the beautiful beach, that is.
Head inland to the hilly pine forests of central Kos, and the small village of Zia, for incredible sunset views of the island. Wander round the village, one of the best preserved and most traditional in Kos, checking out the ancient church and picking up a few souvenirs to take back home. You can even enjoy a rooftop meal in one of the town’s tavernas for dinner with a spectacular view.
With a training centre on the beach and some big waves a little way out to sea, this is a great place for both beginners and experienced windsurfers. Make your way along the sandy shoreline backed by the gentle but reliable wind or simply kick back on the sand and paddle in the shallow waters. However you like your beach life, you can find it here in Tingaki.
