Kathara beach is located just south of the largest holiday resort in Rhodes, Faliraki.
The beach in general
Kathara is an almost 300 m long sand beach, only a short walk from the beach in Faliraki. The only thing separating the two beaches is a small harbour.
The beach has fine-grained, bright sand mixed with pebbles in a few places. The water is very clear, shallow and usually without waves. Kathara beach has all the necessary facilities such as sun lounges, sunshades, showers, changing facilities and toilets. You can park along the roads behind the beach.
Even though the beach is very close to Faliraki, there is hardly ever crowded and the beach is fairly quiet. Hard to believe, but true.
Kathara beach is very child-friendly. There is plenty of room to play in the fine-grained sand, and the water is shallow and usually quite calm.
Water sports activities
There are no water sports activities. However, you can find these at the beach in Faliraki a few hundred metres to the north.
There are as much as three restaurants by the beach. Here the guests can enjoy a lovely meal and the beautiful view.
