Holidays to Lindos

Allow yourself to be transported to a beautifully unspoilt spot on the east coast of Rhodes on a Lindos holiday; it’s one of the most beautiful villages on the Greek island. This charming coastal settlement is home to whitewashed houses and cobbled streets, which flow down the hillside into two bays and sparkling blue waters. It’s easy to spend long, lazy days soaking up the sunshine on the beaches on your holiday to Lindos, before heading back into the village to refuel at a traditional taverna. And don’t forget about the spectacular Byzantine architecture and the magnificent Acropolis of Lindos; there’s a wealth of fascinating sights to see beyond the sandy shores.

There’s plenty of thing to keep you busy on holiday, whether you want to soak up the sunshine or explore historic landmarks. Beyond the stunning beaches, you’ll discover a bustling atmosphere as you stroll through Lindos’ narrow alleys and cobbled streets, lined with beautiful Byzantine architecture and charming Greek tavernas. It’s well worth trekking up the hill to see the 4th century acropolis (one of the most famous sights on the island), and when you get there you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views over the bay. After a day’s exploring, you’ll be ready for a bite to eat; there’s a lovely atmosphere in the old town, which is brimming with tavernas and outdoor terraces. 

Lindos is home to two of the finest beaches in Rhodes, with the acropolis providing a breath-taking backdrop. Brushing up against the sparkling, sapphire bay, you’ll find a golden arc of sand at Pallas Beach (to the north); this local favourite is scattered with sun loungers and umbrellas and there’s a water sports centre, too, if you’re feeling adventurous. Meanwhile, a little further along the coast, you’ll find St Paul’s Bay. This sheltered natural harbour is the best place to snorkel in Lindos; pop your head beneath the beautifully clear waters to take a closer look at the colourful marine life. 

The historic town itself is one of the main attractions here. It’s almost 2,000 years old, with a fascinating mix of Byzantine and Turkish architecture. A maze of cobbled alleyways run between the whitewashed buildings, and cosy Greek restaurants, pavement cafés and friendly tavernas make it a particularly atmospheric place to spend the evening. But the jewel in Lindos’ crown is the 4th century acropolis, which soars 100 metres above the village. When you reach the top, you’ll enjoy panoramic views over Greece’s most photographed town, and famous sites like the Temple of Athena. 

Rhodes Town, the picturesque island capital, is only an hour’s drive from here. Or you could get there via a sunny sailing trip. Either way, when you get there you’ll be welcomed by a UNESCO-listed old town, cobbled passageways and a 14th century knights’ palace; they’re ready and waiting to be explored. If you’re looking for somewhere quieter to spend a day, then why not take a leisurely boat trip over to Halki? Otherwise known as Chakli, this heavenly island is home to a traditional fishing and a wealth of unspoilt scenery.

Weather and climate

Temperature: 28°C summer average

Best time to visit: If you like it warm but not too hot, book your Lindos holiday for May or June; there’s still sunshine before peak season kicks in. 
Summers in Lindos Rhodes are hot and dry, with temperatures staying in the mid to high-20s (°C) between June and September. July and August are hotter still, with regular highs of 30°C. It’s the best time of year to visit if you want to top up the tan. Summer nights are very mild, too; it rarely dips below 20°C, so you’ll have no trouble dining al fresco. 


Getting around

On foot: The cobbled streets in the centre of Lindos are pedestrianised, so it couldn’t be simpler to get around on foot. 

By bus: There’s a reliable bus service that runs from just outside the village to nearby places of interest like Rhodes Town. 

By hire car: If you want to explore the island at your own pace, hiring a car is the way to go. You’ll find lots of companies offering rentals at the airport. 


Events

Rhodes Rock: Every June, Lindos hosts the island’s favourite rock festival. The biggest rock tribute and cover bands take over the ancient amphitheatre for three nights, playing famous tracks from Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.

World Tourism Day: Since the 1980s, towns and cities across Rhodes have joined in with this cultural celebration in September. It’s all about promoting and celebrating the tourism industry, and in Lindos you’ll find music, dancing, food and drink served up in the main square.
