Geography of Kos

With an area of 290 km2 and approximately 112 miles of coastline Kos lies between Nisyros and Kalymnos, covering an area of 290 square kilometres. The coastline is 113 km long. In the past Kos was part of the continent, whereas it is today part of the Aegean, called Epirus Aegeida by the ancient Greeks. After huge geological changes, the continent was divided and broken up, some of which are sunk and others becoming the islands of the Aegean Sea
