Local Area Information

Activity and Interests

The old village of Kalathos, 500m downhill, has two interesting churches - one at the top of the hill affording magnificent views, the other an ancient chapel near the bottom of the village itself. Lapped by clear, sparkling waters and rarely busy, even in the height of summer, the long shingle beach of Kalathos (1.8km) is great to visit in the early afternoon for a cooling dip. On the way home why not pause at the traditional kafeneon or in one of the two local tavernas before picking up supplies at the minimarket for your evening barbecue.

The picture-postcard village of Lindos, offering a comprehensive assortment of restaurants, bars and activities is only a 5 minute drive away. Alternatively, 10 minutes north of Kalathos, is the gorgeous village of Haraki.

Lindos is the Old Town of Rhodes. The radiant, white washed dwellings cling elegantly to the foothills of the Acropolis, the second largest in Greece and is surrounded by coves of sparkling turquoise sea. A protected community therefore free from vehicles and pollution adding to the charm of this picturesque traditional village. The excellent restaurants and tavernas mainly enjoy roof top terraces ensuring magical views of the Acropolis. The fashionable bars and clubs in Lindos are one of the top addresses in the Mediterranean for its lifestyle already recognized in previous years by Jackie Kennedy Onassis and members of the Pink Floyd rock band. Today, many celebrities gather at the legendary, award winning restaurant Mavrikos, prestigious Melenos Hotel restaurant and picturesque Tambakio on St. Paul’s beach – the gourmet destination of Europe’s elite, many of whom either live or holiday in Lindos every year.

Haraki or “Charaki” has a tiny half-moon shaped bay, popular with fishermen and bordered by a simple selection of reputable tavernas serving fresh local specialties including moussaka, ‘meze’, stuffed vegetables and of course seafood. A coastal footpath leads from the village past the ruins of Haraki castle to Agathi, a lovely sandy beach overlooked by an old monastery carved into the rocks and providing a truly inspirational setting for any budding artists or photographers. Water sports can be found nearby and most beaches offer refreshments and toilet facilities.

One of Europe's largest water parks can be found in Faliraki, a 30 minute drive away.
