There is plenty to do in the village of Kolymbia and Rhodes Town is close enough for shopping and sightseeing.
Most of the time people head straight for the palm tree lined beaches of Kolymbia and the available water-sports. You can relax all day here and catch a tan or go snorkelling and fishing around the rocky outcrops. The beach stretches for what seems like miles and you are never too crowded or overwhelmed, although quite a few parts of the beach are only for hotels' use.
Visitors can hire or rent sunbeds and umbrellas on a daily basis and there are a few beach bars dishing up some great snacks and cooling drinks.
If lazing on the beach is not your thing, you can explore the area, which is perfect for anyone seeking to do a bit more on his holiday, like mountain biking, walking or hiking.
There are plenty of shops and places to eat or bars to chill out.
