The picturesque resort of Kolymbia, set amidst stunning mountains, is a quiet, lazy village, ideal for families and those looking for a peaceful haven away from the madding crowds.

A long eucalyptus lined avenue leads into the resort and is lined with a few shops, restaurants and cafes providing you with all the holiday essentials you will need for your relaxing break.
There are two wonderful beaches to choose from on Kolymbia holidays. A white sand and shingle beach creates the main focus of attention and is ideal for sunbathing in the glow of the Mediterranean Sun or making the most of the warm, clement waters of the ocean.
