Rhodes

Rhodes holidays

Culture, coastlines and cocktails – this heavenly mix of holiday must-haves is the reason Rhodes has been a hit with all sorts of holidaymakers for years. Beaches are a big deal here, with everything from the oh-so peaceful sands of Pefkos to the buzzy beach-bar vibes of Faliraki on the menu. And that’s before we even get started on the history – get ready for an ancient Acropolis, medieval castles and more. When the sun goes down on this lovely island, al fresco wining and dining Greek-style is what it’s all about and lively Lindos knows how to do it in style.

Beaches great and small

Like many Greek holiday destinations, Rhodes has been blessed with more than its fair share of golden sands. If you’re looking for sun loungers and restaurant-lined promenades, head to the north-west coast around Rhodes Town or south-eastern Lindos. For something more secluded, strike out and explore some of the island’s many hidden coves in quiet spots around Kalithea.


History around every corner

Rhodes has a long and fascinating history, which you can still see traces of today. The island’s most ancient ruins, sitting in Lindos, date back to the 8th century BC, while the fortified section of Rhodes Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, complete with a dazzling medieval castle.


Quiet season exploration

There’s more to Rhodes than first meets the eye. First of all, it’s reliably warm right into the autumn, so it’s a great place to explore once the high summer crowds have gone home. Away from the beach resorts there are forests for hikers, monasteries for culture-lovers and traditional villages for people that just love good old-fashioned Greece.

Ixia Holidays

Ixia

An all-in-one beachside hotspot within striking distance of medieval Rhodes Town, there’s plenty to see along this northernmost tip of the island.

Kiotari Holidays

Just 20 minutes from Lindos – Kiotari has Blue Flag greatness calling your name.

Pefkos

South-east-coast Rhodes is fully in favour of waterfront hangouts – and Pefkos is no exception.

Lindos Holidays

Lindos

Understandably, the white-hued buildings dotted around this coastal gem have guaranteed Lindos as the prettiest resort of the island.

Faliraki Holidays

Faliraki

Faliraki has long been known for its bars and clubs, which are based along two main streets.

Ialyssos

A short drive from Rhodes Town, this gorgeous Greek locale is waiting to be uncovered, and it’s joyfully nestled on the edge of a sprawling sand and shingle beach.

Beaches

How does a huge, sandy shore backed by rocky mountains sound? Or maybe even small but smooth golden-sand stretches, all in wildly idyllic settings, and backed by fragrant pine trees? Whether you fancy a family-friendly choice or somewhere just great for watersports, Rhodes has all beachfront bases covered.

Sights

Medieval Rhodes Town is a must-visit. Lose yourself in the boutique-lined cobbled streets, walk along the historic walls and explore the imposing fortress that was originally home to the Knights of St John and later became a holiday house for Mussolini. It’s a real portal to the past.

Eating and drinking

Rhodes prides itself on its top-quality local produce, from plump red tomatoes to succulent lamb dishes and fish fresh from the Med. The best way to try a bit of everything is to order a selection of meze – Greek-style tapas. Ouzo’s the local tipple and you’ll find it flowing in the tavernas.
