Kolympia Thalassa LocationThe island of Rhodes has amazing surprises everywhere. It may be one of the largest Greek islands but it’s compact enough to see all the best bits in one trip.
The medieval Old Town is the highlight of the capital city, also called Rhodes. Located in the north east of the island, the city is well preserved but far from a relic. In fact, you’ll find it’s buzzing with life, with restaurants, bars and lots of shops lining its maze of streets.
The star attraction of the fortified town is the Palace of the Grand Masters. You can take a look inside at parts of this mighty fortress which has served all sorts of purposes over the years. Within the complex, you’ll find the Rhodes’ Archaeological Museum. The palace also regularly hosts various exhibitions and performances.
Take a walk around the scenic Mandraki Port while you’re there, or pay a visit to Rhodes Aquarium or Elli Beach – all are within easy walking distance. Landmarks like the Rhodes Acropolis and the Fort of St Nicholas are worth looking out for, and when you need a break, the lovely Rodini Park is a peaceful place to stop. The Museum of Modern Greek Art and the National Theatre provide an introduction to the local culture.
Rhodes city is also the centre of the island’s nightlife. The huge casino stays open late into the night, and there’s clubbing and lively bars on Orfanidou Street and, in the Old Town, Miltiadou Street. It’s worth looking into the best places to eat – as with any tourist-heavy city, there are disappointments to be had, but gems are there too. You will find an emphasis on seafood and traditional Greek fare at many establishments.
Outside the city, the island offers stunning countryside. The Valley of the Butterflies is one of the best-loved attractions, and is at its finest in the summer months. The Epta Piges (Seven Springs) are another highlight, with peaceful wooded areas, a lake and impressive waterfalls.
Further south, there’s Prasonisi, a great beach for water-sports, and the landmark lighthouse which sits right at the tip of the island. The beaches of the west coast also offer good conditions for sports like wind-surfing. Among the highlights of this quieter stretch are the remains of Kritinia Castle looking out into Aegean, and Kamiros Skala village with its abundance of fish restaurants. You can also take a boat trip to the neighbouring island of Chalki from here.
The whitewashed village of Lindos is known as a stylish spot, with its cool nightspots and rooftop restaurants. There are lovely beaches, particularly the charming St Paul’s Bay, but the big landmark is the Lindos Acropolis. Prepare yourself for a climb to reach it (as it stands high up on the cliffs), but the views are well worth it.
