After dark, the island offers something for all tastes, from tavernas serving excellent food to discos, bars, pubs and clubs.

It is a short drive to Lindos or Lardos I recommend Lardos for dinner but you can bbq we found the fishmonger and butchers in lardos very well priced and valintinos restaurant excellent value for money as were all the tavernas in Lardos If you are thinking of booking villa Maya just do it you won't be disapointed

A great welcome when we arrived and good local facilities - Supermarket and Bar/Restaurants all helped. The Villa was very clean, tidy, well equipped and very quiet with no late night noise. The view from the Pool was great and we spent a lot of time cooling down in the early evenings after a hard day on the beach or visiting the local attractions... Lindos was only 10 mins drive away - with a great selection of high quality restaurants and lots of quaint boutiques and plenty of history We all enjoyed our stay in Sunrise 1 - and would thoroughly recommend the Villa to all...
