Holidays in
Kalathos

A relaxing spot in Rhodes

Slow in pace and big on tradition, Kalathos holidays feel a little like stepping back in time. Situated on the eastern corner of the Mediterranean, this petite beachside town enjoys some of the best weather in Greece, with long hot summers and balmy evenings perfect for sipping wine by the shore. Seaside relaxation is big here, and Kalathos boasts some of the island’s best beaches.

It is also surprisingly peaceful compared to neighbouring resorts, making holidays to Kalathos a great option for families with children, or couples looking for a romantic break. Should you feel like venturing further afield, Kalathos is well placed for exploring the island. The enticingly hidden Vlycha beach is a half-hour walk from the town, while lively Lindos is a short taxi ride away, where you’ll find bars and a few nightclubs open until the early hours.

Your Kalathos questions, answered

With one of the longest summers in the Mediterranean, Rhodes is hot and sunny from early April to late October, while winter is rarely cold.

Rhodes is a popular destination through the summer months, but Kalathos happily slips under the radar of many holidaymakers, meaning you’ll always find a sunlounger.

Kalathos is small enough to explore on foot, but hiring a car will allow you to explore further afield. That said, local buses are regular.
