With waterfalls, beaches and a mountain-top monastery, sunny Kolymbia is an adventure playground waiting to be discovered. When it comes to Kolymbia holidays, it’s all about the sights, sounds and smells – especially of the hearty Greek cuisine being served in family-run tavernas. Sitting on the east coast of Rhodes, Kolymbia also makes a great base for exploring other parts of the island – Rhodes Town, where you can see the incredible Acropolis, is just a half-hour drive away.
Or if dancing the night away is what you have in mind, Faliraki’s infamous party strip is even closer. There are plenty of days out to be had off the beaten track on holidays to Kolymbia. Hire a bike or take a drive inland to see wild landscapes and coveted views out to sea. And when you’ve exhausted all your energy levels, allocate some quality time to lazing around on a sunlounger or at a beach bar.
Visit the Seven Springs
Long ago, people used to believe that the water flowing from these natural springs had magical healing properties. Walk through the waterfall’s long tunnel to see an impressive lake.
Climb the holy hill
The walk up to the Byzantine Tsambika Monastery can be a challenge on a hot day, but the incredible views from the top are well worth the trek.
