I am researching potential places to visit in Greece. Rhodes is on the list because someone told me it was a great place to go to imagine the times when the Greek mythological stories were a prevalent part of the culture (Mandraki Harbor). I was thinking of spending a bit of time there. Do you have any recommendations on what else I should do while there? Some possibilities:
  • Explore the ruins from the Knights of Saint John
  • Acropolis at Lindos
  • Beaches - Faliriki, Lindos Beach, etc (did I miss any beaches - these are the ones that most intrigued me)
What else should I see? Thanks!

It is a popular tourist destination known for its stunning beaches, ancient history, and lively nightlife. If you're planning a trip to Rhodes for the first time, here are a few things to keep in mind:
  • Weather: Rhodes has a Mediterranean climate, which means that summers are hot and dry, while winters are mild and wet. The best time to visit is during the months of May to October when the weather is warm and sunny.​
  • Transportation: The island's main airport is Rhodes International Airport, located on the east coast of the island. From there, you can take a bus or a taxi to your destination. Renting a car or scooter is also a popular option for getting around the island.​
  • Sightseeing: Rhodes is home to many historical and cultural sites, including the medieval city of Rhodes, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other popular attractions include the Palace of the Grand Masters, the Old Town, and the Acropolis of Rhodes.​
  • Beaches: Rhodes is known for its beautiful beaches, including Faliraki, Anthony Quinn, and Tsambika. Some of the beaches are organized with sunbeds and parasols, while others are more secluded.​
  • Food: Greek cuisine is famous for its healthy and delicious dishes such as tzatziki, moussaka, dolmades, and souvlaki. Rhodes offers a wide variety of seafood and meat dishes, as well as traditional Greek sweets and drinks.​
Overall, Rhodes is a perfect destination for beach lovers and history buffs. With its warm climate, beautiful beaches, and rich history, it's no wonder that it's a popular tourist destination.


Recommend a good beach near Rhodes Town?

I am trying to plan my latest trip to Greece. To be honest, I don't like to plan too heavily, but I do like to know where I am staying and have a general idea of things to do. Whether or not I do them once I arrive is another story, but at least I have options.

There are a lot of beaches near Rhodes Town. Do you guys have a favorite? Some options I found:

  • Elli Beach
  • Kato Petres Beach
  • Sachtouri Beach
I am just basing this list on what I found on the Internet. I have no attachment. I love beaches that have services close or as part of the beach. Like a toilet, maybe a restaurant or cafe.

Euronet are continuing to install their ATMs

This American company have installed thousands of ATMs in Greece.I saw a new one today 22 February has been installed @ Afandou opposite a taverna & near a bus stop.
Their rate of exchange is pits & their withdrawl fee is high.So best avoided.

Arhipoli kiosk & animal reserve

Just outside Arhipoli is a kiosk selling olive oil & other products. Nektaria the owner has a reserve next door. Here together are peacocks, donkeys, horses & adult red deer with their fawns. The deer are very friendly & like being fed fruit.

Which area to stay on Rhodes?

I am trying to plan my next trip to Greece and I think I will go to Rhodes this time. I went once, and it was only for a few days. Stayed near Lindos. I want to stay longer, and there are different areas - I can't figure out where to stay this time!

Should I stay near Lindos again? Are there other areas worth seeing? It was over ten years ago that I went.
