If you’re considering a holiday in the Greek Islands then Rhodes ought to appear at the top of your list. Its stunning beaches, Greco-Roman archaeological treasures and awesome beauty, particularly in old Rhodes town, draw thousands of curious travellers each year.
Rhodes Town is vibrant and interesting; its medieval quarter is a labyrinth of streets stacked with restaurants, boutiques and tiny inns.
The commercial harbour is an exciting quarter with several good tavernas, and the Acropolis, which is unavoidable, is a perfect example of classic Greco-Roman urban planning and architecture. The yacht and ferry depot that is Mandhraki Harbour is a wonderful place to sit at one of its many cafes and watch travellers and fisherman arrive and depart. All over Rhodes you’ll find hiking trails, swimming holes and diving spots.
Families will love Lindos Beach, while athletes will appreciate the challenging hikes up Mt. Attavyros. Since the 1980s Rhodes has increased its luxury resorts ten fold. Check out the Elite Suites at the Amathus Beach Hotel, which is 10 minutes from Rhodes Old Town, but far away enough to offer an intimate retreat. For the ultimate pampering experience check in at the Elysium Rhodes Resort & Spa or The Kresten Royal Villas & Spa for optimum service and fabulous spa and well-being treatments.
