Rhodes Island

Written by Tim Ross
What an incredible place. Rhodes offers almost any kind of holiday you could want. If you want peace and quiet, youíll find it on Rhodes. If you want activities and night-life, Rhodes has got it. If you want to explore history and culture, that is there too. The island is clean, the locals are very warm and friendly to tourists. English is spoken everywhere and most signs are in English too.

Kalithea Beach

This is the beach where the elite of Rhodes society like to gather every day. The attraction is partly the short distance from Rhodes town, partly the glamour of the magnificent Baths built here by the Italians, and the tiny inlets and coves with their sculptured rocks and clear green water.

This is the favourite spot for local people looking for a quick swim, especially outside the high season. You shouldn't confuse it, however, with the mini beach below the Baths, which is full of visitors who come in little boats from Rhodes town to admire the amazing facilities of the Baths, renovated in 2008, with their mosaics and palm trees. Once you've visited the Baths, drive on towards Faliraki and take the first dirt track to the left.

Then, by following the signs guiding you to the various small eating holes in the area, you will reach a series of pioneered bays and coves, with stone pools and rocks you can dive from (be careful: the sea is deep here, you need to be a strong swimmer). This is the place the locals refer to when they say 'let's go for a swim at Kallithea'. There are  sun beds for hire and a cafeteria. Entrance fee is 3 euro.
