Kolymbia (Greek: Κολύμπια) is a sun-soaked resort in an idyllic place between mountains and the sea with a fine beach for watersports, a few shops and plenty of peace and quiet. Located on the east coast of Rhodes, at about 25km from Rhodes city-center (approx. 40′ minutes drive) it is a family oriented resort with two very different beautiful beaches. Behind an arc of sand and shingle beach, this unhurried, uncrowded resort offers the essence of typical Greek island holidays attracting a multinational bunch of sun-seekers.
Most hotels are designed to merge with the landscape with informal swimming pools dotted through palm sprinkled gardens, but these same relaxing grounds are home to a great range of sport and leisure activities too, and the range of hotels bring quality, comfort and style to relaxed little Kolymbia.
Perhaps the most distinctive landmark at Kolymbia is the long straight road with enormous eucalyptus trees, lined on both sides that connects the main road with the beach.
If you have family with small children then the smaller beach is perhaps the better choice for you. Apart from its shallow waters the fine yellow sand is ideal for the children to spend their time building castles.
Holidays in Kolymbia will lull you into the relaxed tempo. With evening entertainment in your hotel together with a sprinkling of bars and tavernas for traditional greek food and conversation.
