With Rhodes Town to the north and energetic Faliraki to the east, Kalithea holidays are an oasis of calm, ideally located for those wanting the best of all worlds on an authentic Greek adventure. While away the hours snorkelling around the beautiful corals of Kalithea Bay, where the warm waters are teeming with marine life. Afterwards, a choice of sandy beaches provides the perfect opportunity to soak up the sun.
A regular bus service means trips into Rhodes Town are a doddle – and it’s certainly well worth making the journey to explore the characterful streets and market stalls found in the island’s capital. If you’re looking for after-dark entertainment, take a taxi to lively Faliraki beach, where the party scene continues until dawn. Although, given the mix of spectacular scenery and delicious food found on holidays to Kalithea, you may have no desire to leave.
Take to the water
Kalithea’s relaxing, naturally heated thermal springs are said to have numerous healing properties, and well-heeled visitors from across the world have been flocking to them since the 1920s.
Eat like a Greek
Rhodians are rightly proud of their excellent cuisine, and Kalithea is a great place to sample ‘pitaroudia’ (chickpea fritters) and a range of locally pressed olive oils.
Swim with marine life
Kalithea’s crystal-clear waters are perfect for scuba-diving and snorkelling. Grab a mask and fins, or join an organised boat trip for some guided deep-sea exploration.
