Secluded, authentic and low-key
Holidays in Mastihari take you to Kos’ beautiful north coast. Here you’ll find a pretty village with a quiet atmosphere and traditional Greek charm, perfect for those wanting to enjoy a tranquil holiday in an idyllic location. It’s ideal for couples with its romantic atmosphere and a chance to immerse yourself in the local culture with traditional shops, bars, and tavernas dotted throughout.
A stunning background of volcanic mountains and emerald green hills makes this the ideal setting for those wanting to just unwind. Hikers and mountain bikers can explore, while keen photographers will find lots of photogenic spots. Its beautiful beach is soft and quiet, with water sports like windsurfing, sailing, and more for active visitors.
Mastihari is famous for its long sandy beach, and is the ideal place to be if you want to relax in the sunshine and forget about the world. Aside from the beach Mastihari is a working fishing village so there is plenty of freshly served seafood in the local tavernas – think tasty octopus fritters, sea bream, and symiaki shrimps. If you’d like to explore the coastline and bays, you may want to rent a yacht and visit the other neighbouring fishing villages.
Due to the laid-back nature of this tiny village (four streets to be exact) you can expect low-key café-bars, where you can enjoy Greek cocktails, and maybe a spot of Greek dancing on taverna Greek nights. If you want to spend some time away from the beach, Hippocrates Garden Cultural Centre is the perfect choice. While you’re there you can immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the island, while learning about ancient Greek philosophers. The capital Kos Town is less than 30 minutes away, there you can visit The Knights Castle built by St John’s Knights. If you stay into the evening you can enjoy the lively nightlife in many of the bars and clubs.
