A land of contrasts, offering secluded coves, golden sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, unspoiled mountain villages, spectacular scenery with lush vegetation, lively nightlife and centuries of history and mythology.
Rhodes’ unique location at the intersection of east and west ensured that it would have a turbulent history with crusaders, knights, Turks and Italians vying for control of this beautiful island, with the remnants left for all to see in the beautifully preserved medieval city of Rhodes Town.
Rhodes holidays owe their popularity to good, well-equipped beaches, superb weather, plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants and a wide choice of resorts. If you want lively nightlife head for Faliraki. Those looking for a family beach holiday should look at Pefkos, Afandou, Lardos or Kremasti. Watersports enthusiasts should head for Trianda for windsurfing or Kalithea for scuba diving.
Despite the popularity of Rhodes holidays, it is still possible to find lovely beaches or small coves free of big crowds on the less-developed south of the island.
Rhodes’ most famous attraction, the Acropolis, is situated on a hill in the western part of the medieval walled city. The Stadium has been fully excavated and restored to its former glory and there you can see the ruins of the Temple of Athena Polias, the Nymphaia (four caves carved into the rock) and the Temple of Pythian Apollo.
