Tucked away on the southeast coast of Rhodes, Kiotari may be a small resort, but the range of experiences it offers is sure to impress. Kiotari holidays are anything you want them to be – explore deserted coastlines and cycle hilly trails or jump aboard a boat to enjoy views of the beautiful landscape from the water.
Kiotari’s delightful sandy beach is a hit among swimmers and sunbathers, although there are also plenty of hidden coves to stumble upon further along the coastline. Fans of Greek mythology will be in their element on holidays to Kiotari, with the ancient fortress, 13th-century Greek Orthodox church and Roman temple at nearby Lindos, while Kiotari’s ancient walls and medieval castle offer history lessons closer to home. And don’t forget to make the most of the town’s excellent restaurants, some of which are blessed with views across the bay.
Scale the castle walls
Just 10 minutes from Kiotari sits the ruins of 15th-century Asklipio Castle – it may be crumbling today, but it remains an amazing reminder of a bygone era.
Get on your bike
Rhodes’s rugged and scenic interior is definitely underrated. Hire a mountain bike, motorbike or quad bike and head out to experience the landscape for yourself.
