Top 5 things to do in Rhodes
If you're looking for a loud and lively island resort - maybe you're holidaying with a group or just want to let your hair down - Faliraki should be top of your list. Tackle the epic strip, lined with clubs and bars, by night, then spend the days recovering on the longest stretch of sand on the whole island.
Medieval Old Town
For an authentic Greek experience, Rhodes Town is the cultural heart of the island. This medieval old town is the oldest in Europe to still be occupied, and the cobbled streets hide a wealth of cultural gems. See the famous Street of Knights, explore the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes and relax in Socratous Garden.
A quieter option is Lindos. Lindos offers a real ‘best of both worlds’ experience, for those who want both beach and a taste of traditional island life. Visitors to the town are treated to an authentic village, with no cars allowed (just donkeys!) and a wealth of historical, cultural and natural attractions.
Lindon’s two beautiful beaches make a great base for lazy days, when sunbathing, snorkelling and boat trips are on the agenda, but, when you're ready to get to grips with the history of Lindos, the hilltop acropolis awaits exploration. TTD Image #4
Day trip to Sými
For a day trip, Sými is a popular choice, with its Panormítis monastery and beautiful harbour town. Enjoying the hottest climate of anywhere in Greece, you’re in for a scorcher, so pack plenty of suncream.
