Kallithea Springs

rodos (2)
Since the antiquity the area of Kalithea (Καλλιθέα) was known for its thermal, therapeutic springs. In 1927, under the administration of Mario Lago, a systematic study of the waters was initiated headed by Gustavo Gasperini, his son Carlo and Enea Brunetti (who later became the of the director of Terme di Calitea). The study concluded that the water had a range of important properties and proposed the development of the area with the creation of a Thermal Spa Institution that would function in accordance to the stringiest health requirements of the time.In late December 1928 the Government of the Islands of the Aegean decided the construction of the building complex. The project was commissioned to the famous architect Pietro Lombardi. His plans for Kalithea Thermal Spa were considered among the best architectural compositions of the time, masterfully combining different architectural styles from Arabic to Baroque. It was considered, world-wide, as one of the most emblematic architectural constructions of the 1930s.Today Kalithea Springs is considered as one of the most distinctive landmarks on the island of Rhodes. Although the spa is no longer in operation, this fabulous building and unique architectural monument, surrounded by palms and pine trees, has been recently restored, converted to dinning and cafe facilities. The exotic vegetation combined with emerald waters of Kalithea’s cove match perfectly with this idyllic scenery of the surroundings, creates a fabulous picturesque combination of beauty coming right out from the cinema of the past times.Kalithea is about 8km from the Rhodes’ town-center, along the eastern coast of the island. Can be easily reached by public transport. You can also get there by boat. There are several departing from Mandraki harbor.
 

Koskinou Village

koskinou1
Koskinou (Greek: Κοσκινού) with a population of 3.224 is a beautiful village at 7 km from the capital, built atop of a hill overlooking the east coast of Rhodes. Although it is located in one of the most developed residential areas on the island, the village is a protected settlement still retaining its traditional character. Koskinou is one of the oldest villages on the island, byzantine coins and other artefacts indicate that the village existed well before the 15th century. Walking around the village you will find traces from the ancient Greek and the Byzantine eras.

Narrow winding streets with beautiful neoclassic houses painted in bright, vibrant colors, lead down to the lively, main square of the village. In a typical village house you enter through a highly decorated door into a courtyard full of flower pots, jasmine trees and bougainvilleas. In many houses you will find impressive, stone made, arched portals and heavy wooden doors. The floors in both the courtyards and the inside of the house are covered with black and white pebble mosaics bearing Rhodian motifs (hohlaki). Inside the houses the walls are full of amazingly decorated ceramic dishes and hand-woven wall hangings. Wooden raised bed platforms with a storage room underneath are positioned near the walls with no windows.

Around the village there are a number of interesting attractions. You can start with the small, domed church of Aghia Irini (more than 200 years old) and Aghios Lukas a tiny, early 4th century Christian Basilica temple. Then there is the church of the Virgin Mary, the biggest temple in Koskinou village. A small Knights’ castle is located on the outskirts of the village. The views from here are stupendous. In addition, many ancient graves, some set into boulders, can be seen scattered around the village.

The unique colors and impressive facades of the traditional houses of Koskinou have always been the subject of many coffee-table books. In fact Lindos, Koskinou would be the second most photographed village (after Lindos). There are a large number of small-scale, private holiday accommodations for those who wish to stay here and experience the traditional mood of the village. Koskinou enjoys the most spectacular views of the sparkling blue seas in the distance and it is very close to Kalithea Springs and to the famous resort of Faliraki. The village is well known for its traditional cuisine, there are many popular restaurants and tavernas here. There is a major festival on July 17th when the village celebrates the name day of St. Marina with traditional song and dance events, a banquet of food and drink, as well as stalls selling various goods.

Faliraki

faliraki
Situated on the east coast of Rhodes, at about 14 km south of the capital, Faliraki is one of the island’s most developed beach resorts, renowned for its almost 4 km long stretch of wonderful sandy beach and its active nightlife. There is a constant development and transformation in Faliraki in the recent years as a new epicenter, targeted to family oriented beach based holidays, is been created to the northern part of the bay with new hotels and shopping centers with one of Europe’s biggest and best water parks, offering slides, lazy river rides, rafting, a wave pool, aqua-gym and numerous other thrills and spills.

It is possible to do day boat trips around the other small bays of Faliraki, including Kathara Bay, which is one of the most picturesque on the island, and has a nudist beach at one end. Anthony Quinn Bay is famous for the filming of The Guns of Navarone. There are also several, less developed beaches between Faliraki and Lindos, such as the pebbled Traganou beach, and all the beaches are desirably clean with crystal waters.

As mentioned previously, Faliraki is well known for its nightlife and is popular with younger visitors seeking lots of action, both day and night. Bar Street and Club Street in Faliraki live up to their name and reputation as a paradise for young clubbers and pubbers. The choice of dance floors and watering holes is abundant. Arguably the best bar in Faliraki is Ziggy’s, home of the famous (or to some infamous) ‘Fishbowl’, a very large cocktail guaranteed to knock you senseless. For rocking karaoke there is the King’s Garden Bar (KGB) or the Bedrock Bar. George’s Bar is a favourite with football fans who want to keep up with the action on huge screens, and keep on partying. The most popular club in town is Q Club, which opens from midnight to 5am and is always jam-packed: it features a house/trance room, a chart/cheese room and R&B/Garage room. Top London DJs feature regularly at Bed, a massive club that holds about 2,000 revellers.

Active holidaymakers who want a break from soaking up the sun on the golden sands can choose from a variety of fun pursuits on offer at the two large watersport centres on the beach, everything from banana-boat rides and pedalos to bungee-jumping. The crystal clear waters are perfect for scuba diving and snorkeling.
