About
You can't go wrong with beach and parties—and Kallitheas Beach is the perfect place to do just that. This beach on the east coast of Kassandra is just a short distance away from its namesake town, and packed with beach bars and restaurants. Its white sandy shores make it popular for suntanning and its clear and shallow waters are great for water sports and young kids to wade in. Unsurprisingly, this makes it a busy spot during summer. And be sure not to confuse this beach with the similarly named Kallithea Springs on Rhodes Island. – Tripadvisor

    Packed bustling beach area
    This is a relatively nice beach but it’s not all smooth sailing. Parking is a mission with very little formal parking and roads that become congested - go early is the best advice. The beach is narrow and absolutely crammed with sun loungers - to the point that even walking down the beach is difficult. You can of course hire a lounger (around E30 per day in summer each) or walk all the way down the beach to the forested area where you can at least spread your towel out. There are plenty of beach cafes and vendors selling things, and a nice vibe. But it’s definitely not chilled and quiet.

    One of the best beaches in Kassandra
    This beach is one of the most beautiful on Kassandra. It is very long and has many beach bars. The sand is fine white. The water is clean and clear. The price of sunbeds is from 7 euros to 10 euros for a set of two sunbeds and an umbrella. If you don't want to sit on sunbeds, there is a small area next to the Margarita Hotel. There is a parking lot there that costs 5 euros for the whole day and 3 euros for half a day. You can set up your own umbrella and sunbed there, but you need to come before 9 am, because the free space fills up quickly.

    Amazing beach in Greece
    This was an amazing beach with crystal clear water perfect for swimming! next to the shower and changing cabin, there are sunbeds and the restaurant there serves really good food and drinks. The music was also great and the atmosphere was nice.

    Great destination for swimming and sunbathing
    It has a wonderful sandy beach.  the sea is turquoise and does not deepen around 20 m.  I recommend it for families with small children or those who do not know how to swim.  You can use sunbeds for food in beach clubs.  Free parking lots are available.

Disappointing compared to the review ranking (4/5).
It is a very busy beach and beach bars are next to each other playing very loud. as a result you hear different music playing at the same time. Not relaxing at all. I would recommend it only if you stay at kallithea and you don't have a car. It's also good for kids as water is very shallow.

The only beach in Rhodes (as far as I know) they charge an entrance fee. I thought that will include the sunbeds, but no. They charged us 60 euros for 4 beds which were crambed in a relatevely small beach. And guess what, they don't have toilets. We had to walk 600 meters from where our beds were, to use the toilets of the Kalithea sping museum next door which admittedly has a great architecture.
The sea has only 30-40% sand, the rest is rock.
I woul go again to admire the architecture but not to use the beach.

We visited on 14.07.2020., and just to access the beach we had to pay 5€ each. The reason stated was that it is "for preservation of the monument". That's all good, but we weren't visiting a monument, we just wanted to access the beach 30m down, as did all the others. Once there, you have an option of renting a sunbed for 5€ again, with a free drink included. All in all, we won't be back. 20€ we paid for the 2 of us just wasn't worth it. We find paying for sunbeds ok, but not the tickets to get to the sunbeds

The coast of Kallithea has really clear water of a very beautiful color. During my stay, the sand was clean only at one beach (hotel's private beach). There are many cigarette butts and thorns (one of them got stuck in my foot). To get to most restaurants and hotels from the beach, you need to go uphill.
Some restaurants still have russian menu, and even shop/ restaurant signs are often in russian language in GREECE!!!!! (photo below). I want to draw special attention to the pizzeria Evgefston (photo feedback for me is below). In this pizzeria, elementary sanitary standards are not followed and they are disloyal to customers.

We visited the beach with high expectations. It was pretty crowded, the prices were a bit expensive but the thing that we didn't like the most was that the beach was not very clean. The water was a bit dirty and it was wavy. The sand was nice and the depth too. I would recommend it for families with small children but I was not amazed.

The beaches are too small, and you have to walk a long way down hills to get to them also you have the climb up and in 30 degree heat not fun. The beaches were packed strangers and families laying so close to each other as there was hardly any room. Many were Greek people having their holiday too. But the views were spactacular. Kalithea village itself was scruffy and lots of litter thrown on the road sides.

This is a lovely beach, one of the best i have been to. There are tons of sunbeds and umbrellas, most owned by the beach bars or hotels on the front. I can't remember of the ones we were at but if you bought a drink the sunbed and umbrella was free, which was worth it! they're good quality beds and umbrellas.
Lovely sand, clear sea that is shallow enough for me to stand up very far out. (im 5ft3) There's water sports and they're pretty good prices. We had a pedalo boat for 3 of us and it was 15 Euros for the hour, there are also jet skis and inflatables pulled along by a speed boat.
we stayed in kriopigi and got the bus to kalithea for 1 Euro 80. we got a taxi back which was just under 10 Euros.
Well worth spending the day here, we would have gone back for a few more days if we had the time.
