Gennadi and Kiotari Bay: The Forgotten End of Rhodes

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

In 2009 I spent three months living in Gennadi, working as a watersports instructor in front of three hotels at nearby Kiotari Bay in the south of Rhodes, Greece. It was quiet in Kiotari. Many of the hotel sun chairs were left empty; a reflection of the slow start to the holiday season as a result of the poor economic climate. Rhodes island is dominated by the tourism industry, with the endless days of sun and consistent wind ordinarily drawing sunbakers and watersport enthusiasts from all over Europe. However at the time, this scene was not uncommon along the east coast beaches.
