About Mastichari village – Kos Island
The island’s second largest harbor, Mastichari is a lively fishing village that every summer becomes a magnet for those in search of truly authentic tastes and traditions. Mastichari is the seaside settlement of Antimachia, and here in this village with the island’s largest population of fishermen, fresh fish is king, with dozens of seaside fish “tavernas” serving up the daily catch, nothing but fresh and delicious.
The village’s hotels and rooms to rent offer excellent accommodation options, while Mastichari is a great base for exploring the nearby islands of Kalymnos, Pserimos and Leros on small privately-owned boats serving as water taxis.
In addition to its natural beauties, Mastichari is also well-known for its religious festivities on August 29th each year celebrating Profitis Ilias, Agios Fanourios and Ai Giannis, always accompanied by music, local products and a variety of island delicacies.
