Spot Location

Kalithea Bay is located on the eastern coast of Rhodes island, relatively close to to Rhodes town (approx. 8km southeast). This spot is known for its therapeutic springs, since the age of the Knight Temple’s and it means ”beautiful view” in Greek. Nowadays, there is a spa resort that has been recently renovated and includes a small museum and gallery, that was originally built, by the Italians, in 1928. The bay is also known for its underwater caverns and unusual rock formations, which make it a very popular diving destination. It has to be noted that there is no direct access to the beach of Kalithea, meaning that you should should contact one of the diving operators, which usually moor at a platform, just outside the main bay. The average depth ranges from 10m to 30m and the water temperature is usually between 23-29°C.

Scuba diving requires specific equipment and techniques that must be adapted to the natural environment. For this reason it is strongly advised that you check regularly our ‘Schools / Clubs’ section, in order to get in contact with nearby qualified instructors, that will introduce you safely to this unique activity. Although, scuba diving schools will provide you with all necessary technical equipment, we encourage you to visit our ‘Equipment Shops’ section, in order to choose your technical apparel. Furthermore, we highly recommend you to visit our ‘Accommodation’ section, for nearby accommodation arrangements.
