Rhodes Island

 


The Mediterranean island of Rhodes is considered by many as the jewel in the crown of Greek Islands. Rhodes’ temperate climate, rich history and vast natural beauty make Rhodes a natural choice as a holiday destination.
The cosmopolitan city of Rhodes, home to the medieval city built by the Knights of St John in the 14th century and acknowledged by UNESCO as a world heritage site in 1988, vibrates with life, especially during the summer months: People of all nationalities weave their way through the cobbled streets of the Old Town, along the harbour fronts and around the designer shops; cruise ships dominate the harbours; the vast sandy beaches are filled with sun-lovers and the bays come alive with sea sport and boating activities.
In addition to the ancient sites of Kamiros and Lindos there are other, less well known, medieval and ancient strongholds to visit. Orthodox churches and monasteries are in abundance and are to be found in the most surprising of locations. Beaches, bays and hidden coves surround the island and all are blessed with the crystal clear waters of the Aegean.
Faliraki, the primary beach resort on the island of Rhodes, provides holidaymakers and locals alike with a wide range of day and nighttime activities. Home to the biggest Water Park in Europe and a state-of-the-art Bowling Park, Faliraki boasts the best organised beach in the Dodecanese – 5 km of golden sands equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas, water sports, cruise boats, tavernas, beach bars...The bays and hidden treasures of Antony Quinn, Ladiko and Tragunu lie just a few minutes away by boat. Early birds should check out the fishing harbour of St Apostolos where the daily catch writhes on the decks and the locals sip their coffees.... Should you not be lucky enough to be staying in Faliraki for your holiday, don't miss the opportunity to pay it visit!
