kalithea is a salt water dive site, located in Rhodes, Greece. This dive site has an average rating of 4.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers.

Kalithea Bay has been famous for its theraputic springs from before the age of the Knight Templers. The present spa was built by the Italians in 1928, has been recently renovated and now includes a small museum and gallery.
Kalithea means beautiful view in Greek and this stunning bay certainly lives up to its name. The Waterhoppers’ dive and snorkelling platform, where our boat moors each day, lies a little outside the main bay. Please be aware that there is no direct access to the beach of Kalithea.
Kalithea Bay is renowned for its underwater caverns and unusual rock formations. The caverns are very open, easily accesible to qualified divers and home to a wide variety of Mediterranean sponges and soft corals. A topography including caverns, rock overhangs, sea grass and sand provides a huge diversity of Mediterranean sea life. Add to this the gradual change in the salinity of the Mediterranean, bringing with it many fish from the red sea, and you have a dive to remember.
