Hello everyone, Newby here, so please bare with me if this question has been asked before. I will be arriving in Rhodes on Friday evening, and wondering if its cheaper to prebook a taxi or just jump in a taxi at the airport, as not sure if there is a standard rate or not. Thanks

Hi Sandra,
Thanks for stopping by!
If you have a chance to pre-book a taxi I would unless the cost is significantly higher, otherwise finding a taxi might work. Have a great trip to Rhodes!

While opting for a taxi may seem like the convenient option at first glance, there are certain drawbacks to take into account. During peak times at the airport, such as busy travel seasons or peak arrival hours, there is a possibility of extended wait times for taxi services. Pre book a taxi or private transfer through a travel agency (cheaper option) is the best choice.
 

Taking a boat trip around Rhodes?

Has anyone ever taken a boat trip around the island of Rhodes?

From what I've researched, there are a plethora of options, from luxurious yachts to quaint sailing boats, each promising an unforgettable journey across the Aegean Sea. 🌊

What I'm Looking For:

  • Recommendations for boat tour companies you trust.
  • Tips on hidden gems and must-see spots along the coastline or nearby islets.
  • Any advice on the best time of day or year for smooth sailing.
  • Insights on what to bring apart from the obvious (sunscreen, hat, camera—you get the drift).
Anything you can help me with is very much appreciated!

Tips for spending the day in Lindos

I'm planning a day trip to the charming town of Lindos on the island of Rhodes and thought it'd be helpful to share some tips and insights for anyone looking to explore this picturesque destination. From its whitewashed buildings nestled against azure skies to its rich historical tapestry, Lindos promises an unforgettable experience. Here are some must-know tips to make the most of your day:

  1. Early Start: Beat the crowds and the midday heat by starting your day early. Not only will you get stunning photos of the Acropolis with fewer tourists, but the cooler morning air makes the climb more pleasant.
  2. Comfortable Footwear: Speaking of climbing, ensure you wear sturdy, comfortable shoes. The paths up to the Acropolis are steep and can be slippery, especially in flip-flops or sandals.
  3. Hydration is Key: The Greek sun can be unforgiving, especially in the summer months. Carry a water bottle with you to stay hydrated throughout the day. There are several shops where you can buy water, but it's always good to have it on hand.
  4. Explore the Village: Wander the labyrinthine streets of Lindos village. Its unique charm lies in the blend of medieval, Byzantine, and Rhodian architecture. Don’t forget to step into the quaint boutiques and local artisan shops for souvenirs.
  5. Beach Time: No visit to Lindos is complete without relaxing on one of its beautiful beaches. Whether you choose the main Lindos beach or the more secluded St. Paul's Bay, you'll find crystal-clear waters perfect for cooling off after a morning of exploration.
  6. Dining with a View: For lunch or an early dinner, pick a rooftop restaurant overlooking the Acropolis or the sea. The view coupled with authentic Greek cuisine will make for an unforgettable meal. Remember, it's customary to enjoy meals at a leisurely pace in Greece, so soak in the scenery and savor the flavors.
  7. Respect the Site: The Acropolis of Lindos is an ancient site, so remember to respect the ruins. Follow posted guidelines, don’t remove any stones, and always stay on designated paths to preserve this historical treasure for future generations.
  8. Stay Sun-smart: Apply sunscreen regularly throughout the day, wear a hat, and seek shade during the hottest parts of the day (usually between 12 PM and 3 PM).
  9. Evening Stroll: As the day cools down, take an evening stroll through the village once more. The changing light offers a different perspective and photographic opportunities of this beautiful place.
  10. Plan Your Visit: Finally, while spontaneous exploration is part of the adventure, having a rough plan can help you maximize your time in Lindos, ensuring you see all its highlights.
Lindos encapsulates the essence of Rhodes – a blend of history, beauty, and relaxed island vibe. Whether you're here for the historical sites, the beaches, or just to wander through its enchanting streets, Lindos won't disappoint.

Nightlife in Rhodes - Faliraki

I have some friends who went to Rhodes last year and they said they observed that Faliraki has some good nightlife. Is this true?

Could anyone share some insider tips or personal experiences about the best spots to enjoy the evening?

Specifically, I’m looking for:
  • Clubs that have a great atmosphere and awesome music.
  • Bars or pubs where I can meet new people and have some good conversation.
  • Any places known for live music or unique entertainment.
I will only be there for a few days and I might only have a night to spend doing that kind of thing before I move on to another part of Greece. Trying to see a lot this time.

Update on Rhodes after the fires?

I know that Rhodes had a rough summer. I am starting to think about planning my trip to Greece for September 2024. I don't know yet what my plan is, but I always wanted to go to Rhodes to see the Lindos Acropolis area and the Knights of Saint John. I have some people in my party who are history buffs and they would be thrilled if we finally went. We didn't go last year because of all that was going on in the island.

But, I am starting to see Rhodes appear again on Cruise itineraries, and cruising might be a possibility for us because we will be traveling with multiple generations.

For those of you who know the island well, or even might know people on the island, what do you think?
