Less than one hour away is Rhodes Town, offering beautiful architecture and landmarks to explore. Rhodes Town is perfect for a day trip and discovering the Palace of the Grand Masters should be the first thing on your to-do list. The next door Town Walls aren't to be missed either.

The beaches aren’t the only attractions the family can enjoy on a holiday in Lindos –there are so many more places where you can have fun. Let your kids’ imaginations run wild in Rhodes Town, a fortified city of ancient civilisations amalgamated together in a stony segment of the past.

Action & Adventure
You’ll find a lot of the action situated along the shores on Lindos' soft golden sands. The sands have formed into silky bands of gleaming gold over time and are perfect for daily walks, runs or simple strolls.
Pallas Beach and St Paul’s Bay are the two more popular stretches of coastline. Pallas Beach is a sandy shoreline where you can enjoy water sports ranging from scuba diving to water skiing. St Paul’s Bay has a rockier coastline, with rock pool adventures and sublime snorkelling sessions. If the thought of all of those water sports wears you out, head to the secluded sunspot of sunbathing bliss that is Vlycha Beach.
As an island, Rhodes is quite hilly, and visitors can head to the hills to embark on some excellent hiking. One of the great adventures of hiking on Rhodes is visiting the island's villages. Rhodes has 44 villages, and there are many mountain treks that link them together. Spend the day hiking between villages as you stop to rest at the tavernas and restaurants in each one you pass through.
Stroll down Pallas Street from the Acropolis to Pallas Beach, and you’ll find a world of golden sands and tranquil blue Aegean Sea waters. Pallas Beach is split into two parts, but they both enjoy the same bay. You will find plenty of sunbeds, umbrellas and wide-open spaces to relax upon. After soaking up the sun on Pallas Beach, visitors can embark on a taverna tour as there are numerous spots for a bite to eat or a cold drink nearby.
Pallas Beach is ideal for families with children that want to splash in the sea. The waters at the beach are shallow and kids can play all day long in the waters. Another reason Pallas Beach is a great spot to relax as the sands are routinely quiet during the year. Many of the tourists head to resorts closer to Rhodes Town, meaning Pallas Beach has plenty of area for you to spread out.
When the sun sets on Lindos, the Greek Island comes to life in Faliraki. There, you’ll find a vibrant dance scene with earthing rattling music, bright and colourful lights, as well as bustling bars filled with locals and other tourists looking for a good time.
After a long day of splashing about in the sea or sitting in the sizzling sun turning golden brown, there is nothing better than letting loose in the super-cool Matrix. It is the ideal club to land the ultimate dance moves, or clambering up to the DJ’s booth to request your favourite club anthems in Bed Club.
The nightlife hotspots are simply called Bar and Club Streets, so when you set out for your night in Lindos, you won't have to think too hard where to go. Everything you need, from a dance club to a quiet café is there; so be ready to enjoy the dark until the sun comes up.
Steeped in history, a holiday in Lindos has the charm and beauty of different influences – from Romans to Turks to modern day Italians. Through the ages Rhodes and its towns have evolved, and you will see this reflected in the diverse architectural styles. On the hills above the town is the Acropolis which can be reached by steps or, if you are brave enough, try it on the back of a donkey, it is a unique attraction that couples can explore together.
A visit to Rhodes Town is not to be missed on your Lindos holidays, and couples can discover the romantic medieval walled city. Stroll the town's pretty cobbled lanes, saunter around the shops and then treat yourself to a coffee or ice cream at one of the pavement cafés as you enjoy the company of the one you love most.
From Rhodes Harbour you can take boat trips to the stunning little island of Simi or to mainland Turkey. Car hire is ideal for getting around, and allows you to take in some of the local villages and beaches together.
Rhodes is an island proud of its Greek heritage, and Lindos shows off its pride with festivals throughout the year. In mid-August, you can experience the Assumption for the Virgin across the island. In June, there is the Festival of Saint Paul in Lindos, which gives visitors on holiday to the resort village a front row seat view of the festivities.
Other popular celebrations include the Medieval Rose Festival which presents concerts and plays. There is also the International Film Festival that shows independent films and documentaries to guests as movie makers and shakers descend on Rhodes.
