Even over summer the beach doesn’t tend to get over crowded by the general masses of tourism, but even if it does there is plenty of room to spread out and relax. Water sports are a given over summer and you can enjoy some scuba diving, jet skiing and water skiing during you time at the beach. Floating in the shallow shores of the Mediterranean Sea can be all the same a magical experience on Kalathos holidays. Boat trips are another option which allows you to visit various other Greek islands as well as the Turkish mainland.
Exploration is very popular with tourists looking to uncover much of the islands intriguing past. Rhodes Town is an obvious destination to visit if you are looking to ‘see the sights’ with Rhodes Old Town which is a large area which was fortified centuries ago and the charming narrow streets take you in a time machine back to how things once were. Visit the various museums to be enlightened to various stories and events which occurred on the island of Rhodes. Lindos is another option which is only a short distance south from Kalathos. In Lindos you can visit the ancient Acropolis and the old churches which stand which have been kept in great condition.
If you are looking to pick up a few items during your time on Kalathos holidays then it would be best to do most of your shopping during day trips to other areas on the island. You will find souvenirs shops and mini markets selling various food goods but for a more extensive shopping you should check out what is available in other resorts, mainly Rhodes Town. There you will have boutiques selling designer clothes, top quality jewellery and various other items.
Kalathos – Cuisine & Nightlife
One thing Kalathos holidays aren’t short of is Greek cuisine and seafood. In fact, anywhere you go on the island you will find that those two options are the most frequent and enjoyed. However, don’t fear that there isn’t enough variety because you will find various restaurants serving Italian, Chinese and Mexican cuisine too. Hotels provide a good selection of meals. These are also varied as they aim to please the various tastes of their guests. If you are looking for quick and easy food during the day then there is the fast food option on offer too.
The nightlife is minimal but this is the reason people come here, so that they soak up the sun during the day and head to bed on an evening completely undisturbed. This is not everyone’s feeling of course and for those who enjoy a lively night make the short journey to Lindos to enjoy cocktails in one of the bars and dance all night in one of the clubs. The hotels on Kalathos holidays will provide some evening entertainment, but it certainly won’t go on through the night.
