With its tremendous beaches and historic monuments, it’s easy to see why the gorgeous island of Rhodes is one of the most popular Greek islands. From the hedonistic clubs and bars of Faliraki to the laid back coastal attractions of Kalithea, Kolymbia and Pefkos, there is something for everyone on an island that can boast of ruins dating back to the Trojan War.
Away from the resort-filled sandy beaches of the east coast is the harbour of Rhodes town, site of the Great Colossus, one of the Great Wonders of the World. The relaxed pace of life in the island’s interiors can be seen in the monasteries, windmills and tavernas of Apolakkia, where you can also swim in a beautiful lake. The Turkish-style minarets and Byzantine-era churches across the island also showcase the interesting and diverse history of the island.
