Holidays in Lindos

Ancient and exquisite, Lindos is the pride of Greece with its much photographed town filled with Byzantine architecture, churches and whitewashed buildings speckling the hillside. The town spreads down to twin bays with dazzling blue waters, and the jewel in its crown is the acropolis, over a hundred metres above the rest of Lindos, overlooking its historic sites, lively tavernas and beaches.

Wander through Lindos’ narrow alleyways and soak up the bustling atmosphere, with incredible Byzantine architecture on every corner and the scent of authentic Greek food from local tavernas filling the air. Ride a donkey up to Lindos’ famous ancient acropolis to see its 4th century ruins, and enjoy magnificent views across the town. Head down to the beach for a refreshing swim or snorkel, or jump on a yacht and sail to Rhodes Town. In the evenings, the old town develops a pleasant buzz of locals and visitors dining in the local tavernas and relaxing on outdoor terraces.

Lindos’ two beaches are some of the prettiest in Rhodes, with the unique backdrop of the acropolis rising above the sparkling, sapphire bay. The golden arc of sand at Pallas Beach is the ideal place to cool off after a day’s sightseeing, scattered with sun beds and umbrellas and with a handful of waterfront tavernas. You can also head to the water sports centre to try water skiing, windsurfing or parasailing. A little further along the coast St Paul’s Bay, a sheltered natural harbour that is the best place in Lindos to snorkel, with beautifully clear water home to a variety of colourful marine life. 

The historic town itself is the main attraction in Lindos, at nearly 2,000 years old with a fascinating mix of Byzantine and Turkish architecture. A maze of cobbled alleyways navigate between the whitewashed buildings, with the ancient acropolis soaring 100 metres above it. Reach the acropolis by donkey for panoramic views of Greece’s most photographed town, plus famous sites like the 4th century Temple of Athena. The town is an atmospheric place to spend the evenings, with cosy Greek restaurants, pavement cafes and tavernas. Find a rooftop terrace bar to enjoy after-dinner drinks with views across the coast.

Rhodes is a picturesque island that is the perfect place for a sunny sailing trip. Charter a yacht for the day and take a leisurely tour of the coast, visit Rhodes Town or the tiny island of Chalki, loved for its rural, unspoilt charm. Back in the town, the winding streets are the place to go in Lindos for shopping. Something of a paradise for shopaholics, there are unique gift shops everywhere open until late, and Lindos is famous for its beautiful embroidered linen and leather, as well as handmade silver jewellery. Make sure you take home a bottle of koriantolino, Rhodes’ traditional liqueur.

On foot: The centre of Lindos is pedestrianised, so walking is the main method of transport in the town. The narrow streets are lovely to explore on foot.
