The largest of Greece’s Dodecanese Islands, Rhodes is filled with ancient history, picturesque scenery and fabulous beaches. Whether you are seeking a tranquil holiday in the sun, vibrant nightlife, the crystal clear Aegean Sea or want to experience a journey through past civilisation; Rhodes has it all in abundance.
For those interested in discovering a little more about the island, its immense 2400 year old history will not disappoint. Visit Rhodes Town's Old Quarter where you have the perfect chance to stroll within medieval walls, fortress-like buildings, the bastions, narrow valleys, and hidden squares. Also get a taste for the contrasting New Town bursting with upmarket shops, waterfront bars, beaches and more.
Further south is the picture-perfect village of Lindos with its Acropolis towering above the village and overlooking the collection of white-washed houses spilling down to a turquoise bay. Don't worry, if Rhode’s phenomenal history doesn't interest you then its superb watersports facilities, beautiful weather, array of resorts and charm is bound to appeal. For a more traditional and tranquil Greek island break then visit the quieter villages towards the south of the island where you can sample classic Rhodes dishes like moussaka or pitaroudia (a fried pie made from chickpeas) in some fantastic family run restaurants.
If it’s more of a holiday where you are looking to soak up the sunshine during the day and make the most of your evenings then Rhodes has got you covered. The island certainly has something for everyone whether you are looking to party the night away in Faliraki, the island’s clubbing capital or prefer a quieter evening sipping cocktails. To top it off, Rhodes enjoys 300 days of sunshine each year so why not head to one of the beautiful Dodecanese beaches to rejuvenate such as the Tsambika beach and Elli beach in Rhodes town.
