Mastichari holidays major in two things – chilled-out sunbathing and high-octane kitesurfing. This small village on the sunkissed coast of Kos is made up of just a handful of streets with a few hotels and relaxed tavernas. The fun vibe will suit water sports enthusiasts and adventurous families or couples keen to make the most of the windsurfing and kitesurfing schools. When you’re not attempting to skim across the waves, there’s plenty more fun to be had.
A fantastic water park is just minutes away, and the beach offers endless opportunities for swimming, volleyball and sandcastle competitions. Evenings here are wonderfully laid-back – sip beers at a beach bar at sunset, then feast on fresh fish, feta salads and delicious grilled meats. And the fun on holidays to Mastichari can start almost as soon as you land, as it’s handily located just a 10-minute drive from the airport.
