Choose Lindos’ towering acropolis and caramel-coloured sandy cove as the backdrop to your Rhodes holiday. It’s just perfect for a romantic getaway or a lively family holiday. Or head to Faliraki in the north-east for its party scene and easy access to the island’s capital. If you want to discover the more traditional side to Rhodes then you’ll meet the friendly and welcoming locals in Pefkos. Situated on the east coast, its pine-tree-surrounded bay is perfect for an idyllic wedding ceremony as well as a romantic or family holiday.


Head to the west coast for a visit to the island’s Butterfly Valley (Petaloudes). Also worth a visit here is the charming 18th-century Monastery of Kalopetra at the top of the trail. Step back even further in time by exploring the island’s 14th-century knights’ castle. If you fancy an afternoon of splashing about instead, head to one of Europe’s largest waterparks in Faliraki. While you’re there, why not check out Faliraki’s buzzing nightlife, too? Its Strip guarantees an unforgettable night for party people, but the rest of the resort offers plenty of family entertainment too.

Treat the kids to a fairytale-like experience with a visit to the Butterfly Valley nature reserve. Stroll around natural waterfalls, lily-pad covered ponds and charming wooden bridges surrounded by countless fluttering butterflies. If you’d rather go for an afternoon of heart-pumping action, head to Faliraki WaterPark, a favourite family attraction in Rhodes. Let the little-ones splash in the adventurous Tarzan Pool or the giant Tipping Bucket while you max out your adrenaline levels on its 140m-high waterslide. Go for an extra dose of Faliraki fun and try out the thrilling amusement rides at the Fantasia Luna Park.

Known for being one of the best places in Rhodes for a night out, Faliraki is a clubber’s favourite. No one knows how to throw an all-night rave better than the clubs here, plus you can party till sunrise without having to break the bank. Rhodes Town also guarantees a fun night out: Sip mojitos in its elegant lounge bars or join the locals for a bouzouki night where you’ll hear traditional Greek music. For a break from the usual, try your luck in one of Greece’s largest casinos.

Step back into Rhodes’ medieval history with a visit to the capital’s Old Town. Classed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is still inhabited today by the locals, who’ll tell you all about the buildings’ rich Venetian and Ottoman history. Stroll around its narrow, winding cobbled streets and explore its gothic-style gates and walls, before ending up at the Grand Palace of the Knights of Rhodes. Its gigantic size and otherworldly atmosphere make it one of the best places to visit in Rhodes.

By boat: If you fancy a sunny boat ride around the island, hop on one of the tours departing from Mandraki harbour in the north-eastern tip.
