Legend has it that Rhodes was blessed by the sun god Helios, which is why it enjoys 300 days of glorious sunshine a year!
We love holidays to Rhodes and it’s no wonder that this is one of the most popular Greek islands. As well as sunshine, Rhodes is blessed with a rich classical heritage and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its Medieval City. There’s something for everyone on this island of contrasts, which is why so many have visited it. If you’ve not yet been or need reminding of its many attractions and reasons for going back, then read on and be inspired for a future Rhodes holiday.
Come and see the island for yourself on a Rhodes holiday and explore ancient temples and castles, quiet coves and traditional villages, a cosmopolitan capital full of shops, restaurants, tavernas and bars, serving every kind of cuisine – plus many contestants for the island’s best ice cream parlour!
There’s a fabulously wide choice of resorts, from lively to laid-back, lining the splendidly sandy beaches which are in abundance all over the island – even Rhodes Town has the very lovely Rhodos beach. Watersports lovers head to Ixia, sun-seekers love the fine soft sands of Lindos Bay, and spa enthusiasts can alternate between the luxury spa and the lovely beach at Kalithea.
Faliraki boasts a popular beach as well as the island’s three biggest clubs and some fabulous places to eat out. If it’s delicious fast food you’re after, choose from informal Greek grill houses and tavernas. For a luxury dining experience, there are attractive restaurants where you can find all your favourite foods or try some tasty Greek delicacies like Symi shrimps and grilled octopus.
