Sitting on the southeast of Rhodes is the scenic and quiet beach resort of Kiotari. Kiotari holidays are popular with those seeking solitude by the sea as it's a great place to relax away from the touristy buzz of nearby resort Lindos.
The large Blue Flag beach is a real show-stopper and is mostly sandy, though there are stones as you wade further into the turquoise waters. Sprinkled with seafront hotels, action-packed watersports and a growing number of bustling bars and restaurants, Kiotari's supersized beach is brimming with choice whether you want to lounge on the sand or try out the surf. Once in Kiotari, let the traditional Greek cuisine live up to its reputation, which you can enjoy in the many tavernas and family-run restaurants dotted around the resort. If you can drag yourself away from the 4km stretch of sand, there's plenty more to be explored during your holidays to Kiotari, so set off on a day trip and discover what the idyllic island has to offer - whether you head into famous Lindos, Rhodes Town or the quaint local village of Gennadi.
The nearest airport to Kiotari is the Rhodes International Airport at a distance of 62km, which usually takes about an hour to reach. Taxi fares are estimated at around €1 per km. A lot of taxis are available and fixed fares for hotels are displayed at main taxi ranks as well. With costs similar to the other European locales, you have will options for cheaper as well as expensive places.
