Kremasti, Rhodes Island

The settlement of Kremasti is situated at a distance of 12 kilometers southwestern to the capital town of Rhodes, at the northwestern coast of the island. It is a modern tourist resort, extended along the main public road, leading from the town of Rhodes to the villages and resorts of the western coast. Kremasti is in fact a small town, one of the biggest settlements of the island. It counts some 3.000 permanent residents, whose main occupation, apart from tourism, is cultivation of vegetables and fruit trees. The place is very popular and receives numerous visitors, partly thanks to its vicinity to the international airport of the island, situated at a distance of less than 3 kilometers far away, and to the vicinity to the Valley of Butterflies.

Kremasti is a beautiful town, nicely combining the modern tourist resort with the traditional Rhodian village. It is worth seeing the ruins of the Medieval Castle overlooking the area, dated in the Knights’ period, with the church of Aghios Nicolaos inside it. Don’t miss to visit the impressive church of Panaghia Kremasti, dedicated to Virgin Mary, with the large courtyard floor made of pebbles and the huge cypress trees, as well as the excellent wood carved icon screen. You may also visit the local Library, which is housed in a lovely building.

A wide range of alternatives for accommodation, food and drink, shopping and amusement is available in the resort.

You will enjoy swimming, along with many other visitors who come here for the fine, well organized sandy beach, starting from here and extended along the western coast for more than 10 kilometers far away.

The locals celebrate the Assumption of Virgin Mary on the 15th of August and the Novena of Virgin Mary on the 23rd of August. A local feast (“panighyri”), attracting many people, both locals and visitors, take place on the 15th of August, whereas the Novena is celebrated much more officially, with the procession of the icon of Virgin Mary, carried by Navy officers.
