Tigaki is located 11 kilometers from Kos town and 7 kilometers north of Asfendiou village. Tigaki’s permanent residents currently amount to around 250. It is basically a holiday resort which has seen a lot of development during the past decades especially along the long sandy coastline.
Visitors will enjoy swimming and water-sports in the crystal clear waters of this 10 kilometer long beach. There are also many tavernas and bars for those who might get hungry or thirsty, while for the more party oriented among you there is a quite lively nightlife.
The waters at Tigaki beach are very shallow therefore making it ideal for families with small children. You can also walk around and explore the area. “Alikes” (or “Tigkaki Salt Pan“) is a wetland at an easy walking distance and hosts a rich variety of birds.
