Mastichari is on the north coast of Kos directly north of the airport which is less than 10 minutes drive away. Getting to Kos town is a 20km trip and will take you closer to 25 minutes in a car.
Mastichari is a modern tourist resort with plenty of accommodation available and the usual facilities like supermarkets, bars, restaurants and a lovely long and deep sandy beach called Mastichari beach that has gorgeous soft sand as well as tons of facilities to keep you entertained all day.
Mastichari has a small port where many local fishing boats leave each morning and return with the days catch that is sold directly to the local restaurants, this makes the seafood here as fresh and delicious as it can get. Also from Mastichari port is the ferry to the nearby island of Kalymnos. The ferry takes about 30 minutes and you can pick up the current time table from the kiosk near the port.
Also in the area of Mastichari is the Lido Water Park which is a great day out, particularly for youngsters and the Hippocrates Cultural Centre which makes for an interesting history lesson. You’re also not too far from Kardamena in case you fancy a lively night out.
Mastichari is the perfect base for those that want to explore the entire island as it’s roughly in the middle of the island so you can easily get to the north east and the south west for a day trip out.
