Kremasti lies on the west coast. Its a busy village with rooms, apartments and a few package hotels.

Description

The centre of the village is thechurch Katholiki Ekklisia Maria and the classical library. It is worth visiting the church, which has been completely painted in the old Byzantine style, but in modern times: an opulent compendium of biblical scenes.

On the plain towards the wide pebbly beach there are simple hotels, many with studios, and kite surfing stations and waters-sport facilities. A trip to Kremastí is especially worthwhile in the evenings because of the taverns, that locals from Rhodes Townalso like to visit.  

The village is famous for its "Panigiri" or Festival of the Virgin Mary, on August 15. There is a huge street market, fiesta and funfair.
