Mastichari Beach is situated along the edge of Mastichari
village just 22 kilometres west of Kos Town
. The town has a small port that links Kos
which is located directly opposite. It has quickly grown to become a prominent tourist spot thanks to its beautiful white sand and glorious, transparent turquoise water. This creates some picturesque scenes worthy of any postcard.
Visitors to Mastichari beach will be able to swim, sunbathe on the many provided sun loungers and take part in a range of different water sports. The beach is well organised and has no shortage of things to do. It is also well-maintained and generally very clean. Mastichari beach is home to a windsurfing school which is particularly popular and the waves make surfing of any kind a fun challenge. Many will also come for the impressive sunsets, which makes this a great spot for a romantic walk along the sands.
Mastichari beach is not particularly quiet and is visited by many tourists at most times of year. However, there are a few quieter spots for those that want a little more privacy. A boat departs for Kalimnos from the beach every day on a regular basis.
The port is also available for mooring yachts. Those wanting to explore the area will be able to head into Mastichari itself and visit the Basilllica to see its stunning mosaic flooring. Also nearby is the Lido Water Park
and there are plenty of transport options for those that want to head into Kos Town, bus, taxi, hire car or even quad bike. There is also an annual festival that takes place here on the 29th August each year, in honour of Agios Ioannis.
