Kolymbia Holiday Guide

Kolymbia or Kolimbia in Rhodes is a spectacular place, with rolling mountains meeting gorgeous sandy beaches its the favourite destination in Rhodes for many people.  With some stunning 5 star hotels on this part of the island as well as small self catering villas and apartments the village is very welcoming and maintains a very traditional appeal to many.

As you enter into the resort of Kolymbia you are met by a wonderful Eucalyptus road, built under the Italian occupation of the island, which leads you onto the sandy beaches of the village.  The beach itself shelves gently into the sea and this destination is perfect for families with older or younger children and couples alike.

There is plenty to do in the village of Kolymbia and Rhodes Town is close enough for shopping and Faliraki is perfect for families with older teenagers who want to go clubbing for a night.

Kolymbia Daytime

Most of the time people head straight for the palm tree lined beaches of Kolymbia and the watersports available.  You can relax all day here and catch a tan or go snorkelling and fishing around the rocky outcrops.  The beach stretches for what seems like miles and you are never too crowded or overwhelmed by other like minded tourists.  

Many parts of the beach are private for hotel use, but chances are you will be staying in one of the lovely hotels that nestle on the beach.  Each hotel has been specifically built to blend in with the surroundings and you are literally spoilt for choice when it comes to picking your desired hotel for your holiday.

You can hire or rent sunbeds and umbrellas on a daily basis If they aren’t included within your hotel stay and there are a few beach bars dishing up some great snacks and cooling drinks.

If lazing on the beach is not your thing, you can explore the area which is perfect for people looking to do a little more on their holiday, with mountain biking, walking and hiking very popular in this area.

There are a handful of shops and places to eat during the day but the best shopping can be found in the town of Rhodes, the capital of the island.

You can also hire a private boat and venture out into the bay here or even go on one of the many organised boat trips which take you around the island or to the small island of Symi.  You can also get boat trips to Marmaris in Turkey on a daily basis from Rhodes town, this is always popular as you get to browse the Turkish markets and come back with some terrific bargains.

Kolymbia Nightlife

The hotels around the village provide most of the nightly entertainment with professional animation shows and live Greek music.  If you want to get out and venture away from your hotel you will find small welcoming Taverna's serving up freshly caught fish and local Greek cuisine.  One of the highest recommended restaurant is Elena restaurant in the heart of Kolymbia.  The prices are relatively inexpensive and you can get a meal from around 15 euros per head.

There are no clubs in the village so anyone looking for a bit more nightlife would have to hire a taxi and venture into the islands clubbing capital which is Faliraki.  Most people however seem content with enjoying the entertainment laid on by the many hotels in the area.
