I learned about this cool place on Rhdoes I want to see.

Valley of Butterflies is a sanctuary on Rhodes for severe; species of butterflies and is worth a visit. This natural haven is nestled in the middle of a winding stream and surrounded by rocky hills, flowers, and trees. The valley is home to abundant flora and fauna, including 150 different types of butterflies and moths such as the Jersey Tiger Moth, the Spotted Fritillary Butterfly, and the Painted Lady Butterfly.

The best time to visit this natural paradise is from late June to early September. During this period, the butterflies start their 5-day mating cycle, creating beautiful yellow-colored walls along the Rhodos stream. Visiting this place during this period gives you the chance to revel in the delightful colors and aroma of butterflies fluttering around your head.

I found this great video about it:


I don't know I fi will have a chance to go next year, but it really does look neat!
 
As you see in the video they are NOT butterflys. They are Tiger moths. Not very colourful just a rather dull brown. There are not as you state 150 types of butterflys in the valley

I'm not sure the details of the types of butterflies that live there. In the user's post, they said "150 types of butterflies and moths" live there. Looks like both butterflies and moths congregate there but that was based on research, not on actually having been there. Is that accurate? Also, it looks like @nm1999 is simply gathering information about it and hasn't physically gone. Have you been? Is it nice and worth visiting? I haven't been either and am curious.
 
I live on Rhodes & have only been through the valley once. Got bitten many times by mosquitos. Some of the wooden walk ways were in need of repair. I dont know if they have been fixed now.

Good to know that there are mosquitos - thank you for chiming in! It is much appreciated. I haven't been either and would love to.
 

Visiting Ancient Ramiro's on Rhodes

I realized I have never seen this site and I am traveling with history buffs. I thought I'd ask you all for some advice:

  1. Best Time to Visit: What’s the best time of year to explore Ancient Kamiros to avoid the crowds but still enjoy good weather?
  2. Getting There: Are there public transportation options available, or would renting a vehicle be advisable? Any tips on parking or the best times to arrive?
  3. Must-Sees: Within the site, are there any particular spots or artifacts that are a must-see? I'm interested in capturing some great photos and soaking in the history.
  4. Tour. Should I take a tour? Anything to recommend?

Honeymoon in Rhodes?

I have to help someone plan a honeymoon in Rhodes. It can be a romantic place, especially if you love history.

I need some help, though, figuring some things out since I have only ever been here with my family. Where would you stay? What would you eat? What would you do?

Any advice you have would be great - I can think of plenty of things to see and do, and places to eat, but I've never thought about them from a romantic perspective.

Best Food Experiences to Have on Rhodes?

I'm planning a trip to Rhodes and am eager to dive into its culinary scene. I'm looking for recommendations on the best culinary experiences the island has to offer.
  • Must-Try Dishes: What traditional dishes should I not miss?
  • Top Restaurants and Tavernas: Which spots are renowned for authentic local cuisine?
  • Local Markets: Are there any markets where I can sample local produce and street food?
  • Unique Food Experiences: Any cooking classes, food tours, or wine tastings you’d recommend?
I'm a fan of fresh, local ingredients and love discovering hidden gems, whether it's a seaside taverna or a bustling market stall. Any tips or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated!

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.
