Rhodes is a typical bucket-and-spade location with more than 300 days of sunshine and 68 per cent of bright blue skies every summer day. Thus, it makes sense that Rhodes is the island of the sun. The island’s idyllic beaches, adorned with golden sands and crystalline waters, offer the perfect setting for basking in the warmth of the Mediterranean sun. The advantages are clear: long, bright days spent eating ice cream, tanning, and taking leisurely seaside swims on sandy beaches.

Aside from its stunning coastline, Rhodes is steeped in history and culture. The island’s centre is its walled Old Town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Whether it’s wandering through quaint villages, sampling local wines at vineyards, or simply soaking in the breathtaking views from scenic lookout points, Rhodes beckons travellers to explore its hidden corners and uncover its myriad treasures.

The island features a spectacular acropolis, a medieval village, alpine forests, and large stretches of sandy coastline. Here’s what you can do more:

  • The Valley of Butterflies is a tranquil park with streams, ponds, paved walkways, and a spectacular butterfly show. Between July and September, thousands of butterflies and Jersey tiger moths come to this one-of-a-kind nature reserve. It’s a magical place all year, with winding trails, and wildlife-rich ponds.
  • Situated on the eastern shore of the island, the Acropolis of Lindos is a complex historical site. Once a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena in the fourth century, you may now stroll around the ruins and take in breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and Lindos.
  • Indulge in the flavours of Greek cuisine with fresh seafood, traditional mezze, and locally sourced produce. Tavernas and restaurants dotted across the island promise a gastronomic journey like no other. In Rhodes, Marco Polo Cafe is at the top of most best places to eat lists. For a true Greek taverna experience, go to To Megiston or Niohori
  • Rhodes is a magnificent blend of long golden dunes, ancient ruins, and alpine forests. There’s the sandy Vlycha Bay with its blue-green shimmering seas and serene atmosphere on the sun-kissed eastern coast of Rhodes. Glystra features a cafe, sun loungers, parasols, and showers. Tsambika is also highly recommended; it offers views of the monastery.

There’s something for everyone to discover on this enchanting Greek island. Are you planning your trip to Rhodes Island already?
