Kiotari, Rhodes

Although Kiorari has grown very much over the last years along an impressive vast beach, it does not yet suffer from the same tourist saturation which has unfortunately marred too many of the other traditional resorts on Rhodes.

Here you will find large, luxury hotels, a few well-run restaurants and tavernas, a shopping center with more or less anything you need (mini markets, bakeries, patisseries and cash machines) - these are the main features of what is in fact the most contemporary and stylish tourist resort on Rhodes. Kiotari has grown up over the last ten years along an impressive, vast beach, but does not suffer from the same tourist saturation which has negatively affected many of the other traditional resorts of Rhodes. You will find no real community here, just shops and hotels, most of which operate the all-inclusive system, and thus their guests spend almost the whole of their days within the hotel's facilities and on their private beaches. Most of the holidaymakers are families or couples, looking for peace and quiet by the sea, although there are a number of local people who come down on summer weekends as well. Even if you are not staying here it is worth stopping for a swim on the superb beach with its damp sand.
