Rhodes attracts many tourists as it’s a cosmopolitan place oozing class and sophistication. As if it needed a better introduction, it’s officially the sunniest place in Europe guaranteeing you a sun soaked holiday.
Rhodes offers a variety of activities for all ages. For the braver among you, there is bungee jumping, catamaran sailing, horse riding, rally carting and plenty of water – sports. Those who would like to come back with their hair can choose from bowling, mini golf, walking tours and much more.
Most of the nightlife on the Island is limited to the City of Rhodes, Faliraki and Lindos where the most famous and lively clubs Amazone, Loft and La Scala can be found. Varieties of different music are on offer meaning there’s something for everyone.
For something a bit different why not try Casino Rodos which has over 300 of the latest technology slot machines and 34 gaming tables.
Rhodes is a paradise for tasty food which you can enjoy in small tavernas or the most elegant restaurants. You will not be disappointed with the local cuisine but be warned that dinner doesn’t start until around 10pm. Restaurants tend to be more expensive than tavernas but offer a range of international dishes. Rhodes is famous for its delicious desserts which you won’t be able to refuse so make sure you leave room!
Where to Stay
If you’re looking for somewhere lively to stay in Rhodes, Faliraki is the place to stay. Situated close to a beach with lots to do and excellent night life it’s recommended for younger party – goers.
If you’re looking for a truly cultural experience, the Lindos area is one of the most interesting archaeological sites in the world which attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world. It has managed to maintain its old tradition and style and stay inexpensive at the same time. There is lots to do around Lindos and public transport is excellent.
Perfect for families is Genadi Village which has all the facilities you would expect from a modern holiday destination. By day there is plenty of sight – seeing to do and excursions to go on and at night local bars and clubs play contemporary music and show international sporting events.
There is so much to see on the Island. The Castle of Rhodes houses the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes and the Temple of Apollo is a site that must be seen. Kamiros is a city that must be seen even if history doesn’t normally interest you. Even after nearly 3000 years you can still see the remains of the very rich and advanced civilisation that existed thousands of years ago.
The best time to holiday in Rhodes is mid – summer as you’re almost guaranteed that it will always be warm and dry. However, prices can be high and the crowds overwhelming. If you travel any other time of the year you will avoid the crowds but hotels, restaurants and transportation are scarce and the weather is unpredictable.
