Kallithea village includes a quiet beach area and thermal springs and is popular with the locals. It is is just eight kilometres down the east coast from the Island’s capital, and three kilometres north of Faliraki.
For centuries the thermal springs of Kallithea attracted people from across the islands and farther afield, looking for cures for their various ailments. In 1928, the Italians constructed the first building to enclose the springs, but it wasn’t too long before they dried up, and the project was abandoned. In the late 1990s however, work began to restore the spa building back to its original splendour. After many stops and starts the job was finally completed, and the Moorish style spa re-opened in 2007. Today, you can visit the spa with its Rotunda Hall, imposing entrance-way and patio, beautiful pebble mosaics, and gardens full of palm trees, pine trees, and local flora; but the healing waters will be the warm salt water of the Aegean Sea. Kallithea’s sand and shingle beach is well equipped with sunbeds and parasols, and offers a range of water sports, with scuba-diving being particularly popular. There are also several boat trips which run from the beach. The nightlife is pleasantly subdued and ideal for those who want to enjoy evenings with a quiet meal and glass of local wine, or relaxing with a beer on the terrace of a local taverna.
