Beach description

It is located in the village of the same name, which in recent years has acquired the features of a real tourist resort. All along the beach of Mastichari on the coast of the Aegean Sea on the left side of the pier travelers can count on the cleanliness of the pavement and sea water, as well as availability:

  • changing gear case;
  • sunbeds, umbrellas – available for rent;
  • a few kite and windsurfing schools – wind for fans of these sports activities drives a wave of up to 1.5 m. When quite windy, seaweed is attached to the shore, leaving clean water in the sea;
  • water activities – catamarans, diving, water skiing;
  • tavern for drowning near starvation.

The beach has enough width and length, divided by dunes into grass thickets into small closed areas of 50 m each. Going to the sea is gentle, which is especially convenient for bathing children. The bottom is covered with fine sand, only in rare places when entering the water there are stones. Those wishing to escape from the curious eyes and to be in silence can go far along the coast to desert places surrounded by olive trees.

Locals come to Mastichari for a day to enjoy the sea's careful embrace, the hot sun and the view of the enchanting sunset. In the evening, they dine at the tavern they chose to eat with a glass of cold home wine.

Not far from Mastihari Beach there is a clean outdoor Aquapark Lido. He is especially fond of children who came to rest with adults.

When is the best time to go?

Greece - a country with a long length from north to south, so the recommendations will vary depending on the place where you are going. The holiday season  begins in May and reaches a peak in July-August: there are too many tourists, and the temperature on the southern islands reaches 40 degrees, which may still not play a role on the beach, but certainly not suitable for sightseeing. So the best time to relax in Greece is the end of spring-beginning of summer or September-October.

Useful information

The peaceful setting on the beach is comfortable for children. Soft sand, convenient descent into the sea water and small waves allow boys and girls to swim without fear. Riding on "bananas" and slides for kids will delight young tourists. There are good municipal playgrounds near Mastichari.

It is worth considering that sand under the sun heats up very much during the day. Therefore, so as not to hurt to step on it, you need to take comfortable shoes with you. Those who did not do this are better off walking along the beach along wooden paths.

To save on food, you should choose a tavern or restaurant located in the depths of the village. Prices there are much lower than those that are located at the beginning of the walk.
