Rhodes has a remarkable history and atmosphere to match. From ancient temples and cobbled streets in Rhodes Town to wild beach parties in Faliraki, Rhodes is a true colossus of holiday destinations. The east coast is bordered with miles of golden sand, while the west holds rocky cliffs and secret coves. With guaranteed sun and a range of activities, Rhodes looks set to remain the UK’s favourite Greek destination for a long time to come!
Things to Do
Touching down on Rhodes it’s hard not to feel the presence of the island’s incredible ancient history. Rhodes Town offers museums and whitewashed houses in an area recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site, while Lindos bans cars from its ancient cobbled streets. Of course sunbathing and watersports are popular pastimes on the island's beaches, and after dark the party crowds swarm to Faliraki for a night on the town.
Food and Drink
Aside from its large choice of all inclusive hotels, Rhodes has some fabulous restaurants serving local Greek food and international cuisine. For fast food and convenience look out for ‘hole in the wall’ style cafe serving traditional ‘souvlaki’ kebab skewers and Greek salads. These outlets can be found throughout the island and are a cheap and easy way to try simple Greek cuisine on the go.
Popular with younger holidaymakers, Faliraki offers great beaches packed with watersports, alongside a bustling nightlife.
