Traveling Rhodes on foot is one of the best ways to experience the island!! I highly recommend it for anyone who isn't traveling in big groups or with kids. I love walking around Lindos which offers whitewashed houses and beautiful architecture. You can spend hours wandering around town to admire the cafes, shops, and restaraunrts.

Lindos in Summer is too crowded with tourists especially when the cruise ships are in Rhodes Town.Today 29 June the Celebrity Apex ship is in town.Its capacity is 2,900 passengers.Most of the things for sale in the tourist shops are imported from China.Very little hand made lace is now made in the village.

I think if you get past the busy port areas in the summer, you can get away from some of the crowds. Lindos can be great, but you're right, it can also be very crowded.

Lindos can also be very crowed.Just to correct you. Lindos is very crowded especially between 10 AM & 5.30 PM .Between those times Lindos residents & people staying there head for the beaches to escape the crowd.

Do you recommend going for a late dinner and walking around at night? How is it at that time? Thanks for the insight!!

Things to do in Rhodes for 1 Day

Everyone please add your recommendations to this list!!

- Palace of Grandmasters
- Old Town
- Go to the beach of course!

Why you should visit Ancient Kamiros in Rhodes

Kamiros is a beautiful archeological site that is about 50km from Rhodes Town. I recommend driving there for sure, its always easiest. This town used to be one of the main cities in Rhodes and it was abandoned after it was damaged by an earthquake. I highly suggest visiting if you love history!!

Visit Monolithos Castle in Rhodes!

I absolutely love castles! This is not something you think about when traveling to Greece but its a great gem

Hike Mount Profitis Ilias in Rhodes :)

This is the third highest mountain in Rhodes and one of the best places to hike on the island

Are there any beaches in Rhodes with lock boxes for valuables?

I really appreciate when beaches have lock boxes (or whatever they're called) with a place to store my phone, keys and wallet at my beach chair while im swimming. Does anyone have any recommendations?
