Passengers who are taking the ferry to Mastichari are arriving in the second biggest port in Kos of the Dodecanese Islands, opposing Kalymnos in the north!
Mastichari is a settlement of Antimachia in Kos and is located in the northwestern part of the island, around 25 km away from the main town. The homonym village becomes very busy during summer months (May to September) with tourists from all around the globe. It is mostly visited though, from those who are seeking relaxing vacations in sunny white-sanded beaches with crystal clear waters, plenty of accommodation options and fresh delicious seafood. The coastal area of the village is full of beaches, cafes and traditional Greek tavernas which serve fish caught by the local fishermen in the same morning.
Furthermore, except for the natural prettiness of the island, Mastichari is also known for its traditions and religious annual festivals celebrating the saints Agios Fanourios, Agios Ioannis and Profitis Ilias. These anniversaries are good chances in order to get closer with the locals and understand better the Greek culture.
Holidays in Mastichari, especially in summer, guarantee a relaxing time with quality food. Make sure you pay a visit to the main beach with its exotic waters, stroll around the graphical village and at the coastal promenade which can be quite romantic at sunset and if you have children with you, you can also make a stop to the huge Lido Water Park, one of the biggest in Greece.
