With beaches, ancient history and a chilled-out nightlife, holidays to Kalithea bring oodles of fun – and ouzo – to the table.
The best view
The coastline of the Halkidiki
peninsula in Greece
has some picturesque scenery, and Kalithea's no exception. The name itself means 'the best view', and it's easy to see why. The main beach is a sand-and-shingle beauty, with inviting blue waters and sunloungers just waiting for beach bums.
Kalithea's friendly atmosphere is just the ticket for getting into holiday mode. Pick a taverna with a view of bays and coves, then order your way through the menu. Sea views, grilled meat skewers and seafood's a winning combo for any afternoon.
The Medieval city of Rhodes Town
is just 10 minutes away by car. After wandering the stone ruins, block out a few hours to soak in the restored Art Deco spa. Its delicate mosaics and white-domed pavilions are pretty as a picture, while nearby Faliraki
's got bars and nightlife for when it's time to turn up.
