    Location of Kolymbia

    You can find several resort towns along the northeastern coast of Rhodes including Kolymbia. It is located app. 25 kilometres from the capital.

    History of Kolymbia

    Kolymbia is a fairly new resort town. During the Italo-Turkish War in 1912, a town called San Benedetto was standing in its current place. It was established by Italian occupiers for agricultural reasons. After the end of World War II, the Italians troops retreated, and barely anyone remained in the town. The area started to flourish in the 1980s when tourists began to explore the great shores.

    Climate of Rhodes and Kolymbia

    On the island of Rhodes, winters are mild and summers are hot and dry. The average minimum temperature during the winter months is 3-5° Celsius, and the temperature of the sea drops to 17° Celsius in this period; it can be 14-15° Celsius on a sunny and windless afternoon. The temperature drops below freezing point only on the hilltops, but the snow does not persist longer than a few hours in these areas either. Summers are scorching hot with a temperature as high as 35° Celsius in the afternoons from July to September. The average daily temperature is around 30° Celsius, with a sea temperature of 25° Celsius. The hills and mountains around Kolymbia help lessen the impact of the Meltemi, coming from the northwest.

    Main sights around Kolymbia

    Kolymbia itself only has few interesting sights to offer, but is a great starting point when exploring the attractions in the area. Going towards the west, you can admire beautiful mountains and olive tree plantations. You should not miss the valley of Seven Springs either, which might be the most beautiful spot on the island! The village of Archipoli can also be found nearby; once there, visit the famous toy factory where you can try arcade machines, battery-powered toy cars and board games. There are also churches and an archaeological museum in Kolymbia.

    Gastronomy of Kolymbia

    The town of Kolymbia has dozens of different restaurants, representing basically every cuisine from around the world. Of course, you can try authentic Greek dishes, too, as many of the restaurants and taverns serve doner kebab (gyros), pasta and fish.

    Beaches around Kolymbia

    Kolymbia beach

    It is a beautiful long pebbly-sandy shore segment in Kolymbia. We particularly recommend it for families with children because of the slowly-deepening waters. Most of the beach is well-organised with a lot of sunshades and loungers. The beach – surrounded by wonderful verdant trees – has become very popular among the visitors of the island who can also choose from a wide variety of watersport activities here.

    Tsambika beach

    Tsambika, the southern neighbour of Kolymbia, is a partly-organised sandy beach; lying in front of Tsambika Monastery, it offers the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine in a calm environment. Adrenaline junkies can also try several watersports on the beach.

    Afandou beach

    This well-organised pebbly beach can be found north of Kolymbia. There are dozens of watersport activities with rental options to choose from. During the main season, the beach is fairly crowded with beach-goers. As the water deepens rapidly in these parts, we recommend it for experienced swimmers.

    Yacht charter in Kolymbia

    Kolymbia is the perfect starting point when exploring the marinas and resort towns of Rhodes. Take a little detour, and explore the neighbouring islands as well!

    Rhodes Marina

    This giant marina on the northern part of Rhodes Town has become world famous for a reason. It excels all the other marinas on the Aegean Sea in all respects. They can accommodate 382 boats with a length of up to 120 metres and maximum draught of 6.5 metres. Regardless of what service you need for your boat, you will definitely find it here: fuel, service, maintenance, water supply – they have it all! They even provide convenient features – for instance, Wi-Fi access, which is a rare commodity in Greek marinas.

    Kolymbia Harbour

    This is a tiny and stranded harbour in Kolymbia. It is designed for smaller pleasure boats due to the shallow water. The centre is only 5 minutes from the harbour; you can take care of shopping there.

    Kolymbia is a peaceful resort town that does not get too crowded even during the main season, making it an ideal choice for a relaxing day. Leaving from its harbour, you can easily get to the most important coastal towns of Rhodes.
