Kallithea is a very popular V shaped bay on the east coast of Rhodes
. It's about 10km south of Rhodes town
which is around 15 to 20 minutes in a car.
There are actually a few separate areas in the bay at Kallithea but they're all linked together and similar in style so are usually considered one. The whole area is trendy with high quality wooden sun loungers, music and table service to give you a relaxed day at the beach.
Kallithea beach is privately managed and there's an entrance fee to get in, If you want a sun lounger then that's an additional cost and drinks aren't cheap either so it's one of the more expensive places to spend the day. In 2022 the entrance fee was 4 euros per person and sun loungers were 20 euros per pair but this does include some soft drinks and discounts are available later in the day.
The beach itself is made up of coarse sand and stones. The water stays shallow and is crystal clear which makes it a popular snorkelling site. The beach is only at the tip of the V, along the edges of the V there's no real beach, it's a raised area with steps down to the water.
There's no water sports or room for beach sports but there is tavernas on either side of the V where you can get food and drinks.
Kallithea beach is right next to Kallithea Springs
and Kokkini beach
so you can easily make a day of it and visit all three places in one trip.
There's a large car park on site with space for around 100 cars. It doesn't cost to park there and you should be able to find space at any time of day. There's also a taxi waiting area so if you arrive by taxi you should be able to get one back as well.
