Kalithea Beach on Rhodes island
Kalithea Spa, is a small bay and lido, with
umbrellas and sun beds. There is a very good swimming and snorkeling, to be had
in the nearby coves. Kalithea is one of the most beautiful
places on the island. It is built on a picturesque anchorage full of pine trees.
There you'll find spa springs, which are known from the 7th century b.c, and can
cure many diseases.
Kalithea's buildings were designed in 1930 and perhaps they are the most
beautiful buildings on the island. Kalithea was built when the Italian commander
named Mario Lago ordered its construction. The Italian architect Pietro Lombardi
designed the famous fountain, the square, the entrance and the sanitary
facilities. All these create magnificent scenery that can be seen from the
anchorage above. There is a diving school situated there, where you can explore
Kalithea's magical underwater seaworld. There is a entrance fee of 2 Euros. The
lounge bar, close to the beach is a perfect place to relax.
