Description

In lovely green surroundings, the bay of Kalithea is only 10 kms from Rhodes Town, the ideal base for sightseeing & shopping. 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. It is an excellent bay for snorkelling and the only place on the island authorized for scuba diving. One of the more laid back resorts in Rhodes, it features splendid domed pavilions and pink marbled pillars set in beautiful gardens.
