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!!

Seven Springs in Rhodes is a great place for couples!

This is one of the most beautiful natural places on the island of Rhodes. In English, it's called Seven Springs, but in Greek it's called Epta Piges. These are natural springs that are open to the public. It is a particularly romantic place and great for couples, especially those on honeymoons. The springs are located in the woods, and have amazing scenery. It's the perfect place for a picnic and to spend the afternoon. I highly recommend that everyone visit!

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.

Welcome to Pefkos, Rhodes

Pefkos is an absolutely amazing destination to go to on the island! It has a great beach and wonderful restaurants and coffee shops in the area. The beach is not overcrowded and I personally think its a great place to go with family and kids. There aren't too many organized activities on the beach but it is great for swimming. Here is a great areal view of the beach.

The city of Rhodes is about to have some major changes

I am very happy to see that Greece is investing in preserving its architecture and mediaeval cities. Rhodes has so much beauty, that I would hate to see it go away overtime because of environmental or other damages and erosion. Their plan is to create three main sectors of the city which will be the monumental, residential, and commercial areas. I'm very curious to see how this project will turn out and how the funds will be allocated. Have you heard anything about this?

Airport taxis

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
