Kardamena is a small town that is situated on the south coast of Kos. It is a very party-orientated town with countless bars, clubs and places to enjoy yourself. Despite being mainly a party part of Kos, it is still considered to be a step down from the wild resorts of Kavos and Malia. It is definitely catered toward the 18-30 year old drinking crowd but there are still some decent things for families to do too.
Budget holidays to Kardamena are very readily available and the resort can be reached from most regional airports.

Kardamena is at its busiest during the summer period which runs from about mid-spring to mid-autumn, although rarely gets overwhelmingly busy at any point in the year. During this time, temperatures reach the high 20s and even into the 30s on most days. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring but not massively as this place is very affordable all year round! Kardamena is focused on its summer influx of visitors so we recommend a trip then when the town is truly alive!
The main attractions to this town are mainly focused around the popular harbour area. Here you will find plenty of late night bars and the main strip of bars leads you to the town’s main square - also home to many bars. What makes Kardamena slightly different to most places though is the fact that music in most places goes off at midnight. Your choices are then to either make your way into one of the sound-proof clubs or relax and chat with friends in the warm, open air. There is also a go-kart track here which is worth a mention.
Due to Kardamena targeting the younger party crowds, the vast majority of accommodation in the resort is made up of basic hotels at affordable prices. However, there have been a few all-inclusive hotels cropping up in the area over recent years so you might want to have a look at those if you are working with a bigger budget. There is a decent choice of restaurants in the area but like with the hotels, most of them are standard and nothing too fancy. There are, of course, plenty of takeaways to choose from after a boozy night out or for something quiet and easy if you are staying in.
