The island of Kos is close to the coast of Turkey and on the northern coast lies the quaint fishing village of Mastichari. This village is a great place to spend a holiday because it has avoided the kind of mass tourism on other parts of Kos, so it's a great place to enjoying the beautiful sea and eat good food.

There are some lovely expanses of fine white sand, transparent waters as well as magical sunsets. For the more adventurous, there are various water sports to try, including kite surfing and windsurfing.
