Tucked away on the North Eastern corner of Rhodes, Kalithea is a small resort just down the road from Rhodes Town and perfect for families wanting to escape the crowds. Historically people flocked to this stunning coastal village to bathe in the magical spring waters and spa, which still remains a top attraction to this day.
Nowadays, families are drawn to the laid-back way of life, with lazy days spent at the beach and relaxed evenings sampling traditional dishes at family-run tavernas. Dig into authentic meze and Greek dishes such as moussaka and kleftiko, or try homemade spirits and delicious local wines.
The scenic bay is ringed with unspoilt white-sand beaches and shingle coves which gently slope into the clear waters. With lines of sun loungers and plenty of water sports on offer, Kalithea is the ultimate beach holiday destination. For a taste of action, the island’s capital, Rhodes Town, is a short ten-minute drive away and is bursting with life - expect energetic bars, an electric nightlife and first-class restaurants.
