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!!

These are my best Rhodes travel tips

These are my travel tips from having visited Rhodes a couple of times!

-Don't spend all your time at the beach! It's tempting, but there are some really great sites and an amazing village town that are totally worth visiting
-You shouldn't pay top dollar for a hotel just because it has a pool! Many of the beaches are much better than the pools and they also offer great services like food and drink service.
-Bring your own first aid kit. If you need medical attention, it might be difficult to find a pharmacy that's open. There's usually one or two pharmacies that remain open at night or during holidays. If you don't have a car, it will be more difficult to get to them.

Best of luck and enjoy your holidays!

The best wineries to visit in Rhodes

I've done quite a bit of research about the different types of wines in Rhodes and what wineries produce the best wine. Of course, wine are always up to your personal taste and no one can truly tell you what is the best wine for you. The most popular and successful wineries in Rhodes are Alexandris Family Winery, Kounakis, Tatakis, Kounakis and Piperis. If you've been to any of these, please let me know how your experience was!

Take a day trip to Symi island from Rhodes

Taking a day trip is the easiest way to see many of the islands in Greece. Symi is a pretty small island, so I don't recommend spending many days there. What you can do is take a short ferry to the island and spend it walking around, exploring and heading to the beach. If you're lucky, you'll be able to check out the annual music festival which features artists from around Greece.

Ferry service resumes between Turkish destinations and Rhodes!

For those of you that are traveling to Turkey from Greece using the ferry or vice versa, you are in luck! The ferry services are being re introduced which is great news especially for those that are traveling on a budget. The ferries were close down because of covid and have been closed for some time. Every Friday and Sunday there is a 45 minute boat ride from Fethiye, Turkey to Rhodes. This is such a quick trip and will definitely be cheaper than taking most flights! Has anyone taken this route? Unfortunately I have not and cannot provide tips from personal experience.
