One of the classic, and in my opinion, best trips, is to the island of Nissyros, which is just an hours sail away. The volcano on Nissyros is still alive and kicking, but not so much so that you can't walk down into the crater and experience at first hand the steam and sulphur bubbling out of the surface holes.  It is amazing! The island itself is beautiful and there is time to have a look around the harbour village of Mandraki and visit the church of The Virgin Mary of the Cave.

There are lots of boat trips calling at various bays and some include a BBQ.
Fishing trips for those of you who prefer to catch your own supper.
Visits to Paradise beach by boat for fun and games or sail into the sunset on a wooden sailing boat.
Scuba diving can be arranged, even for beginners.
Private boats are available for charter, some of which amazingly luxurious!

A trip to Turkey for shopping or visiting the fantastic castle housing a nautical museum is another option. Or you can head off a bit further afield to see old Rhodes Town which is stunning, or the monasteries and library of Patmos.

A day cruise around 3 islands, which includes a visit to the sponge divers island of Kalymnos, is a relaxing and easy way to do some sightseeing and to swim in the clear waters of the Aegean.
If you prefer to stay on dry land, there are trips to Kos town; to Zia in the evening to watch the incomparable sunset or enjoy Greek night; to the Thermal springs for a therapeutic bathe or to the Water Park for the more energetic.

The numerous offices in the village - some of which you can see below - will help you to decide which excursions are for you. They all offer other services such as exchange, safety deposit boxes, information etc.
