  • Notes:
    Marmari is a quiet place on the north coast of Kos island. There are several low-profile hotels that line the beach suitable for a quiet holiday. If you have booked a room in one of these hotels, Marmari beach is a good place to spend the day, sunbathing, reading, and playing beach games. But the beach gets very rough most of the time since the norht coast of Kos is a very windy place. The hotels keep the sand clean and put up wind bariers for the parasols, but the wind stirs up the sea floor and make it hard to swim most days. On our visit, there were huge paches of seaweed covering almost the entire length of the beach, making it fairly uncomfortable to swim. Permanent signs on the beach explained how seaweed is part of the natural environment, but it didn't make it any more comfortable to get in the water.
RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
