Kiotari, Rhodes

Although Kiotari 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 been introduced to many of the other traditional resorts on Rhodes.

Kiotari was originally the port of the village of Asklipio. Large hotels have now been constructed along the shore in the direction of Lindos, assuming the name. The kilometer-long beaches and excellent water sports options make up for the absence of a town vibe. Around the old Metamorphosis church, which features early Christian capitals, one can find guesthouses and taverns.

The main beach is pebbly and extends to Gennadi; some rocky parts of the beach are intriguing for snorkeling. There are also many water activities, and while parts of the beach are sandy, swimming shoes are nevertheless advised.

In Kiotari you will find large, luxury hotels, well-run restaurants and tavernas, shopping centers with more or less anything you need (mini markets, bakeries, patisseries and cash machines), and these are the main features of what is in fact the most contemporary and stylish tourist resort on Rhodes.

Kiotari has grown and expanded up over the past years along an impressive, vast beach, but does not suffer from the same tourist saturation which has affected many of the other traditional resorts of Rhodes.

The majority of hotels in Kiotari operate on an all-inclusive basis, allowing visitors to make use of the hotel's amenities and private beaches for the majority of the day. Most visitors are families or couples searching for peace and quiet by the sea, and some locals also travel here over the summer weekends. The wonderful beach is worth visiting at even if you are not staying here.
