Kalithea

Distance from Rhodes City: 11Km Add your review about Kalithea

Kalithea is more of a resort than a village. It is situated against a setting of stunning beaches and world famous spa baths, on the eastern coast of Rhodes, 2kms off the lively resort of Faliraki. Kalithea is relatively quiet: still, it offers the visitor an extraordinary amount of entertainment choices. The beaches, bays, coves and caves offer something for each member of the family. The beaches are well organized and offer canteens, restaurants, toilets and umbrellas. The rock pools and caves offer endless exploratory promise to all youngsters and for the more adventurous, daily underwater diving trips can be arranged. Water sports are on offer too, but should you wish to lie back and relax, a more perfect spot would be hard to find.

Kalithea Spa was built in 1920 by the Italians during their rule of the island. It is said that Hippocrates, father of all physicians, drank and recommended the healing qualities of Kalithea waters, and that was back in 460BC. There were many followers of this type of healing and the waters are said to have helped those with stomach troubles. Today the domed pavilions and archways have been renovated and although the waters have long-since dried up, many people visit the area for its crystal clear sea waters and magical scenery. A cafeteria has opened and inside the rotunda an art gallery is organised by the local Municipality. Wedding receptions are often hosted here just as there are conferences and events. Walking through the gardens one can touch and smell the various herbs and spices planted along the paths, giving off a particularly strong aroma.
