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?

I go to Pefkos every year and have friends on the island. For me, it’s the perfect resort for holidaying and just down the road from Lindos which gets a lot of tourists, but still beautiful. We stay away when the cruise ships are in.
This year we went in September so were keeping a close eye when the fires were happening earlier in the year. Pefkos was (mostly) evacuated at least once, but I don’t think the fires ever really threatened as it’s surrounded by barren mountains, I think the incoming smoke was the main problem.
It’s an issue which will happen again, but we can’t know when so it won’t stop me booking holidays, it could be anywhere anytime if the conditions are right.
I would highly recommend Rhodes for your holiday, it’s a beautiful island, and Rhodes Town (about an hour by bus from Lindos) is stunning.
 
kcixcy . Taking a cruise could be a good idea. Ships are still coming this month. One is here today.be aware you only get about 6 to 8 hours at Rhodes.

I didn't realize that cruise ships were still going to port in Greece at this time of year!
 
A total of 34 cruise ships will be in Rhodes this month

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.
