Mythology: A hero’s beach

Thousands of years ago, Hercules, the famous hero of the Greek mythology, was sailing on his way back from Troy, when a sudden storm, sent by goddess Hera, destroyed his ship and huge waves washed the hero tο the coast of an island.
The island was Kos and the coast was at the south-eastern part, at a cape named Cape Lakitir. There are still a few old maps that mention this place as Cape Lakitir. Τhe beautiful adjacent beach is called Helona.

Today, three luxurious hotels are nested on the same beautiful coast, only a few meters from the beach, under the brand name Lakitira Hotels: Lakitira Resort and Village, Lakitira Suites and Helona Resort. All three proudly offer a unique, unmatched, summer experience: the Lakitira experience!
