Mastichari is located 22 km  west from Kos town. It’s a small port which  links Kos to Kalimnos which is exactly on the opposite side and its beach and  is  a modern tourist resort. One of its main characteristic features includes the ruins of the old, Early Christian Basilica with its beautiful mosaic floor only a short distance from the sea.

There are several accommodation alternatives around the area. In Mastichari visitors apart from peace and quiet can also find good food served at the very popular fish houses which are only 20-30 meters from the beach and offer fresh fish and many delicious seafood dishes. Mastichari is very popular for the fresh fish as many fishermen have their fishing base here which means probably whatever is served on the table has just been caught in the morning.

Mastichari beaches are known for the white sand and turquoise waters which create the image of  an exotic place, just like the ones you find in the Pacific Ocean.  Its claimed that Mastichari has the best beach and sea in the whole of Kos. On the road going to Mastichari you can find a Water Park and for those looking for something more private the beach has a few remote spots to enjoy. Windsurfing fans, will find Mastichari’s waters ideal for the sport, due to its big waves and for those new to the sport there is a windsurfing school available.

The local festival takes place on the 29th of August in honour of Agios Ioannis (St. John), and it is greatly enjoyed. Access from Kos town is easy (22 kilometres) by public buses, by taxi and by car and motorbike. From Mastichari’s port you may visit Kalimnos, the boats depart regularly every day and if you have a yacht, the small port is available for mooring.
