Beach Time: Mastichari Beach for Shallow Waters and Lots of Waves

Mastichari Beach is about 25 minutes drive from Astir Odysseus Kos Resort & Spa, 22 km south of Kos Town. It is a large, white sand beach, popular with families and couples, but also a favorite for kitesurfers.

The Mastichari Beach is recommended for its shallow waters and vast shore that offer families with children enough space to sunbathe and play safely. Besides, the beach is not far from the Lido Water Park, which boasts attractions for young and old. They even have a small zoo here, which will enchant the little ones. The park has snack bars, kids restaurant, beach volley, playrooms, Jacuzzi, and even a Fish Spa.

Located in a natural bay, the beach ranks the most beautiful of Kos. While the beach is suitable for beginner kitesurfers, there are also other watersports you can enjoy here, including windsurfing, SUP, SUP Yoga, and sailing.

The beach tends to be busy, but because it is rather large, you will find enough room to enjoy some privacy. At the center of the beach, there are sunbeds and umbrellas, or you can benefit from the shade of the trees that line the strand. Within a short walk from the Mastichari Beach, the Mastichari harbor offers connections to Kalymnos Island, a favorite destination for rock climbing and bouldering, but also for sightseeing. A day trip from Mastichari to Kalymnos, the sponge divers’ island, can be one of the highlights of your vacation on Kos.

Mastichari is also an excellent choice if you like fresh fish and seafood. The small fishing village is famous for its rustic fish tavernas, some of which are lining the beach, offering beautiful sea views in addition to good food. Ask for the “catch of the day” to enjoy the freshest of the fresh. Have your camera ready to capture the image of fishermen coming back with the bounty of the sea in the morning.

Couples enjoy Mastichari Beach for its romantic sunsets. Some couples prefer enjoying the views on a walk on the promenade, while others sip cocktails at a local cafe. Whatever your reasons for choosing Mastichari Beach when you stay at Astir Odysseus Kos Resort & Spa, you will find something interesting to see and do.
