Traveling to Rhodes island
By far the largest and always the most powerful of the Dodecanese Islands, Rhodes (ro-dos) abounds in beaches, wooded valleys and ancient history. Whether you arrive in search of buzzing nightlife, languid sun worshipping, or diving in crystal-clear waters, or embark on a culture-vulture journey through past civilisations, it’s all here.
The atmospheric Old Town of Rhodes is a maze of cobbled streets that will spirit you back to the days of the Byzantine Empire and beyond.
Further south is the picture-perfect town of Lindos, a magical vision of sugar-cube houses spilling down to a turquoise bay.
Tourists come to Rhodes for its huge number of crystal clear turquoise beaches and ancient monuments.
But this is also an island of staggering natural beauty, in addition to having an excellent tourist infrastructure that sees some of the best and most modern hotels offered at great rates. Tempted?
Well you should be because this infrastructure also means there is literally thousands of things for year-round tourists to do, with action-packed resorts and isolated mountain villages.
Whether you are into your water sports and water parks, or simply want to spend the day meandering around an ancient Greek temple or two, it’s all here.
