Kolymbia Holidays

Brilliant base for a Rhodes break

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.
