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.
