In lovely green surroundings, the bay of Kalithea is only ten kilometres from Rhodes Town, and is therefore the ideal base for sightseeing and shopping. A great choice for families and friends alike, Kalithea holidays provide laid back enjoyment in one of Rhodes' quieter resorts.
The former spa of Kalithea, built in the 1920's, was once promoted as a spa for rheumatism. The installations are worth seeing but have fallen into disrepair and are currently being restored.
Visitors to Kalithea come here for the excellent snorkelling opportunities in the bay and also because it is the only place on the island authorised for scuba diving. Pop on your fins and discover the delights of Kalithea, above and below the sea. The crystal clear waters in Kalithea are a dream for swimming and there's plenty to explore in terms of marine life around the rocky coves in this picturesque area.
Ladiko Bay, also known as Anthony Quinn Bay is a very secluded and beautiful area which actor Anthony Quinn fell in love with after filming 'The Guns of Navarone' in Rhodes. He decided to try and buy the isolated bay to create an international centre for the arts, but the plans never materialised and the bay remains an untouched beauty spot.
On dry land you'll fall in love with Kalithea's splendid domed pavilions and pink marbled pillars set in beautiful gardens. A laid-back holiday with all the trimmings.
