Kolymbia is an enchanting little resort on the east coast of the Greek Island of Rhodes, about 16 miles south of the beautiful capital of Rhodes Town. The long town beach (which has a Blue Flag for its clean water and excellent facilities) is the main attraction, curving gently around a sheltered bay with a stunning mountainous backdrop. There is a clutch of restaurants and cafés and a handful of low-key bars but the main draw of Kolymbia is its peace and serenity. If you’re in the mood to let your hair down, a 15-minute taxi ride will bring you to vibrant Faliraki or stylish Lindos, both of which boast plenty of nightlife options.

Your guide to Kolymbia holidays
Life in Kolymbia revolves around the main town beach, where you’ll find all the essential facilities from lifeguard posts to parasol-rental. The lovely bay is enclosed by two headlands: the largest is to the south of the town, a verdant hill crowned by a monastery which you can climb for amazing views. There are lots of wonderful day trips from Kolymbia, such as the ancient town of Lindos, with its clifftop acropolis, or Rhodes Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its perfectly preserved historic centre. Inland, walk among clouds of colourful butterflies in Butterfly Valley, or spend the day hiking or biking through the mountains.
The main town beach in Kolymbia is a one-kilometre-long stretch of sand and shingle curving around a beautiful bay. It has excellent facilities, including parasol and sun lounger rental, and you can rent kayaks, paddle boards and pedaloes. You could also take one of the boat trips on offer, which run along the coastline to destinations such as Lindos. Behind the beach is Eucalyptus Road, which is where most of the restaurants and bars are clustered. Just south of the resort is Tsambika Beach, which has golden sand, shallow waters, and a smattering of cafés, making it perfect for families.
