Kardamena (Greek: Καρδάμενα), is a small Greek village 7 km from Kos Island International Airport at Antimachia, situated mid-way along the south coast of the island of Kos. Once a small fishing village, it has emerged as one of the most popular summer destinations, especially for British tourists, over the past two decades, offering scores of pubs and restaurants, bars and night clubs and water sports facilities. It reported a population of 1,783 inhabitants at the 2001 census and has a land area of 35.150 km².
Kardamaina is built on the site of the ancient settlement of Alasarna. During the 2nd century BC, Alasarna was an important urban center with one thousand citizens, to whom the slaves and the metics should be added.
The archaeological excavations have brought to light some impressive ruins. A Temple of Apollo, an extensive Early Christian settlement (from the very few known in Greece), as well as four basilicas that belong to the same period. Also many stone objects of everyday use (millstones, tools, vases, vessels, etc.), mostly made of volcanic and sedimentary rocks have been recovered so far.

Dear quests of SunBeam, we sadly inform you that in the summer of 2021 SunBeam will remain closed. Uncertainty due to the pandemic, combined with high operating costs, in order to maintain a high level of service and compliance with health and safety rules, forces us to make this difficult decision. Our customers have the option of returning the deposit or transfer of their reservation to 2022, with the agreed prices.

Epirus in northwestern Greece, the Ionian Islands and the Aegean islands are currently the only green areas in Europe, according to a revised map published on Thursday by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) charting the spread of the coronavirus. In contrast, red is the prevalent color across most of Europe, which indicates 150 confirmed cases of the coronavirus per 100,000 population. At the same time, most of Greece, Finland and Iceland are orange.
The ECDC does not collect data on the United Kingdom, Switzerland, the Balkan countries (excluding those belonging to the EU), Ukraine, Belarus and Russia.
