About
Historically visited for therapeutic and medicinal purposes since the 7th century, the thermal springs here are no longer in operation, but you can still explore the ancient bathing areas. Instead, chill out at the pebbly beach and cove and soak in the area's natural beauty, surrounded by trees and lush vegetation. Bring snorkels to spot fish darting around the rocks and enjoy ice-cold beverages on the sunbeds available for rent. There are shower facilities, a cafe, a shop with souvenirs and provisions, as well as a cat sanctuary near the entrance before you enter the springs. – Tripadvisor

    Heaven
    This is the fourth time I have visited here. Such an amazing, beautiful and relaxing place. Beautiful bay and clear waters for swimming. Very picturesque and stunning spas . If I hadn’t got married in St Paul’s bay I would have come here. It is totally stunning. Lovely food and drinks. Sun beds a bit expensive at 15 euros but worth it. Had lovely day out with family and friends

    Must see!
    It cost €6 to enter. It takes around an hour to walk around. Very impressive gardens and buildings. There is a beach onsite however the sun beds are expensive. Toilets on site and a cafe. A must see if it is your first time in Rhodes.

    Super nice, but why ticket is higher for foreigners?
    Me and my spouse loved that place. We went 3 times, 2 for swimming. One think is not understandable for us... Why we as Greek pay 2.5 Euro per person while foreigners pay 4 Euro per person. Yes, it is an advantage for us, but still doesn't feel nice.

    Well worth a visit!
    Beautiful space to spend a lovely day out! Cheap entry fee (€6-8 euros, can’t remember exactly!) and a beautiful location for some food and a drink by the bay, as well as a lovely building to explore! Sunbeds are available for hire, something like €25 for the day, but we chose a table at the cafe with a few drinks and a beautiful pizza - the food is fantastic and good value for the portion sizes!

    Tunnel
    Short trip but fun going through tunnel. It's pitch dark and water runs on the really narrow walkway. Take water sandals. There is no turning back once you start walk in tunnel. Take a torch!

    A great way to spend a day
    We were staying five minutes away from Kallithea Springs, so decided to visit as our hotel’s beach wasn’t great. We paid 4 EUR each for entry and 25 EUR for two sun beds with an umbrella, which seems to be a lot less than other beach clubs on the island charge. We got there around 11am and only a few beds were already occupied so we had plenty of choice. You can access the sea from either a ladder or a small beach. It’s very rocky so flip flops or sea shoes are recommended, but the sea itself is pretty calm. We had lunch at the restaurant on site; there was plenty of choice, prices were reasonable and the service was great. I was impressed at the space and the quality of the food as I’d read some previous reviews referring to it as a ‘small cafe’. There is also a museum detailing the history of the spring with great views across the sea. Overall this was a great way to spend our day. A lot of the other beach clubs appear to be style over substance and cater only to young, Instagram crowds, but this was perfect for couples and families.

    Stunning
    Was just beautiful. Stunning relaxing place to visit . A little bit pricy for 2 sun lounges was 25 euros . But alot of people just lay on towels etc. Lovely cocktails delivered to sun beds or lovely bar restaurant area to sit n chill. We had a walk up to top where weddings etc take place it's stunning. The views are amazing

    beautiful and very fair priced
    We've been here a few Times and always enjoy it. The salads and pizza with hand made fresh dough are huge and superb quality. Tons of waiting staff are very attentive and nice. Only 3 euro admission, reasonable price drinks and food and free loungers. I consider it a top bargain and great day out in the crystal clear bay. Stunning. Don't forget to go upstairs and see the venue and views. They were hosting a wedding while we were these. Top

We paid €5 per person just to get in to the place. The idea was to stay all day on the sunbeds and then enjoy a meal in the restaurant. When we got to the beds we were told that they were full. They just kept letting more and more people in until I said that they needed to inform the admission desk that they were full to stop others from having the same problem. They did this eventually and then at least people were able to make an informed choice. We were told that if we wanted a bed we would have to wait. 20mins later and we were still waiting. Nobody was moving and, at €6 per bed they weren't going to. Our only option would have been to continue waiting or to put a towel down on the concrete/stones in full sun and burn.
I asked for a refund, stating that we had not been told it was full. A lengthy discussion started, where I was told that the fee was for the gardens and the beds were a separate company. I explained that you could not use the beds or restaurant without paying the entrance fee so they couldn't suddenly shirk responsibility for the error. I eventually received a reluctant refund but it was not a nice experience at all.
It's a lovely place but it's really really busy and, in my opinion, it's just ripping tourists off.
If you're dead set on going, arrive really early in the morning and ask the admission desk to radio through and check that there are available beds before paying the fee.

Beautiful setting, it cost 18 euros in a taxi from Rhodes town. Entry is 5 euros per person. Would be a fantastic wedding venue. Great if you are happy to have a sunbed and go swimming , theres a small bar snd restaurant there and the prices are comparable to Rhodes town. If you want shopping etc you would be better going to Lindos.

Previously given 5 stars but visited today and it’s just not the hidden gem anymore!!admission price has increased to 5 euros per person from 3, and you also now have to pay another 7 euros per person for a sun bed whereas in the past these were included in your 3euro admission fee. You can’t sit where you want for that price either, the rude lady sat in the makeshift booth on the beach allocates you your beds and you are given a laminated number and ticket to display. You are instructed to bring this back when you lave so they know the beds are then free to charge somebody else for later in the day. We wanted to sit where was 2 lots of 3 beds together but as there was 5 of us we had to sit with a 3 and a 2, they weren’t prepared to move one of the beds to another place - even after me paying 7 euros per bed!! It wasn’t as busy as it has been previous times we have visited and I now see why. The increased admission cost and additional cost for sun beds took the edge of what is normally a lovely day out. The food was nice at the cafe but again quite expensive for what you got. I can only imagine the price increase and charge for sunbeds is a recent thing as when googling before I went, all the web pages I visited and reviews I looked at stated 3 euros which included sun beds. It’s a good job I took plenty of money with me as some people clearly hadn’t expected this and decided to sit on the stones beach instead of pay for the beds. Web pages need updating so people aren’t misled into thinking this is a lovely reasonably priced day out for the family which is what it used to be. Come on Kalithea springs, stop ripping off the loyal tourists before you start to loose visitors due to your greed or update your websites and make it clear beforehand of the additional charges so returning visitors and new ones can make an informed choice before they get there if they want to pay rather than be hit with it on arrival. Please also give the lady charging for the sun beds some customer service training so she isn’t adding to the insult of making us pay for beds by her awful attitude. Just wondering what the admission price is for now you pay an additional price for sun beds. Lovely place to visit and I’ve been lots of times before but I’m afraid it’s just far too expensive now for a family of 5 to visit.

Stunning architecture, beautiful views and immaculately kept. Spent 3 days here while staying at a nearby hotel. Enjoyed walking round the gardens, admiring the art works and reclining on the very comfortable sunbeds. Definitely the best place to snorkel in Rhodes, probably why scuba diving is based here. Food and drink reasonably priced, food portions were very generous. We were served at our sunbeds by such polite helpful staff. Loved it here.

We arrived late in the afternoon and chose 4 sunbeds whch cost 30 euros so i was a bit disgruntled at first. But then you all get a large sized bottled water in a bucket full of ice served and also a cold beer or soft drink each along with a basket of crisps. So in effect the value was very good.
The springs have been well kept since renovation and the water to swim in is lovely. Be careful though as it is stoney when you first get in. Beach slippers are a god send. There are ladders to climb out as well if you want to choose a different way of getting out. If you havent visited the Springs before this is a very popular place for weddings and is a truly stunning background for your photos.

We arrived at 11 am and were charged an entrance fee of 3 euro per person. When we got down to the beach we couldn't find a sun lounger - asked the woman at the bar who was very rude and said she didn't know. Finally after wandering around for 10 minutes we found a waiter who shrugged and said all the sun loungers were occupied. As we were leaving there were about 30 people in a queue all being charged the entrance fee with no chance of getting a sun lounger - either serious lack of communication between staff at the beach and the entrance or they're happy to let people pay in to have to leave again. Won't be back. Went to the beach on the right hand side of the car park instead which was much more pleasant

Scam. Utter waste of time and money (entrance fee 5e for adults, children under 12 free). There is absolutely nothing to see or do here, unless you fancy an overcrowded beach with overpriced umbrellas or drinking/dining in a bar/restaurant where masses pass your plate.

We were told about this by someone who worked in our Hotel and what a place it is. We were so surprised by the way it was all organised. 3 Euros each for entry and we paid an extra 4 Euros each for a comfy bed, and a drink each, we chose the fruit Ciders. We sat on the second row, which was more private, and understand the front row is 5 Euros. Extra alcoholic, non alcoholic drinks, tea and coffee and Food is also served either to your sunbed for the Restaurant overlooking the sea. Easy access to the sea near the beach or down the horizontal metal stairs, which could be tricky for some. The buildings are amazing with stunning views, photographs and toilets. We had a great time here and if we had heard about it during our first week we would have had two visits.

We planned on half a days visit and ended up staying for hours, this has to be one of the most relaxing, enchanting and fabulous places in Rhodes. Its 5euros to get in and then if you choose you can hire a sunbed for around 7.50 euros, we went the whole hog and spent 40euros on a four poster with two beds... that includes 2 bottles of water and a drink of your choice, so pretty good value.

We watched the world go by, with snorcklers, swimmers, divers, boats and sunbathers, enjoyed even more so with fabulous food, drinks and waiter service. All the staff were superb extremly helpful and you dont lift a finger. The perfect place to relax and unwind

€5 per person, children go in for free. Lovely place, very small but atmospheric beach, lots of cats that you can play with (they come from the adoption centre nearby). It's a short trip but worth it. I recommend to go down to Oasis Beach afterwards as it's rather unique.
