Your guide to Rhodes holidays
The island of Rhodes is jam-packed with things to do from snorkelling at Lindos Beach to brushing up on your history at the Knight's Hospital – there’s plenty to keep you busy for the duration of your trip. Much of the action centres around the city of Rhodes. The area is divided into the Old Town, New Town and the harbour. Some of the highlights here include the Avenue of the Knights, The Palace of the Grand Master of the Knight of Rhodes, and the Annunciation Church. Moving away from the island's history, you can visit the beautiful Valley of the Butterflies. This stunning outdoor area is known for its wide collection of rare butterflies and scenic walking trails. Boat trips around the island are also a popular way to see its breathtaking natural beauty. You can either take a tourist boat or, if you fancy something a little more high octane, you can hire yourself a speedboat and take to the waters the intrepid way.
There’s an huge variety of different beaches on the island which cater to all tastes and needs. The eastern end has calm waters and long sandy stretches. Over on the western side, you will find a more pebbly affair. Winds tend to come from the west and therefore this side of the island is more suitable for those looking to kiteboard or surf. The eastern end is more sheltered and the waters tend to be calmer. Lindos Beach is an excellent spot for families as the water is incredibly calm and shallow enough for young swimmers. There are some nice snorkelling spots, as well as plenty of facilities where you can go for lunch and also hire a pedalo or canoe. Pefkos Beach is famous for its signature scent. The aroma comes from the cluster of pine trees which line the beach. The beach has also been awarded Blue Flag status due to its white sands and magnificent blue waters. Other popular beaches include Falariki, Kalithea and Gennadi.
