Things to do

Rhodes:

Discover the capital city of Rhodes, of the same name. Located on the northern tip of the island, the city is home to approximately 80,000 people. Explore the old medieval city ruins and the modern city as it functions today. The ancient city was even built with a protective moat.

St. Paul's Bay:

Visit any one of the beaches on the island of Rhodes. For example, visit the closed-off cove of St. Paul's Bay in Lindos. Lindos is a small bay, and St. Paul's Bay faces a Haraki resort. The apostle Paul is said to have landed in this bay during a storm. Make sure to see the beautiful inlet.

Church of the Panagia:

The Church of the Panagia is located in Lindos. The church is easily identifiable by its bell tower made of stone. It is white-washed outside with red roof tiles, and inside the floor is designed in the kokklaki fashion, which consists of black and white pebble mosaics.

Archaeological Museum of Rhodes (Hospital of the Knights):

The Archaeological Museum sits in the former Hospital of the Knights. This interesting building is bioclimatically designed to cool in summer and heat in winter. The Museum has exhibits on the archaeological findings on Rhodes and its surrounding islands.

Water Park:

Visit the Water Park on the island of Rhodes. The water part was built amphitheatrically on 328,000 square feet of the island. It is located 7.5 miles from Rhodes centre. Slides, black holes, free fall, kamikaze slides, and other rides can all be found at this attraction sure to please adults and children alike.

Acropolis of Lindos:

Visit the Acropolis of Lindos. This fortress was appropriated by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Knights of St. John, and even the Ottomans. This layered history makes it a difficult site to excavate on an archaeological level. The view of the coast and the nearby harbour is spectacular.

Weather in Rhodes

Weather on Rhodes is consistent with a Mediterranean climate: hot and dry in the summer, with rainy and mild winters. Summer temperatures reach into the mid-30s and winters do not generally fall below 10°C. The Etesian Wind system is present from May to October each year. This system, also called the Meltemi, can be problematic for sailors.

Travel to Rhodes

Getting to Rhodes is simplest by plane. Book your flight into the Rhodes Airport (RHO), also called Diagoras. Both regular and chartered flights leave and arrive daily from all over Europe. Once in Rhodes, a ferry system throughout the entire Aegean Sea brings travellers to and from all major islands and to the mainland of both Greece and Turkey.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

We were greeted by Selina who showed us around & ensured we knew where everything was. The villa was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything needed for our stay. The welcome basket which included breakfast items was so helpful. When we awoke the next morning we were greeted by the most idyllic views across Vlicha Bay! The pool & outside area were spot on and well used by us during our entire stay as we enjoyed wall to wall sunshine for the week with temperatures in the mid to high 20’s. The pool was excellent as it was heated & the guy came twice during our stay to keep maintain it. Mid week the cleaners also came in & refreshed our towels! It was easy to walk down to the beach & Azzuro bar & restaurant. We had a great day trip to Rhodes town and a boat trip from St Paul’s Bay with Perry’s Sea Adventures and both days were just perfect! Most evenings we got a taxi into Lindos which only cost about €10 each way. We sampled many restaurants but our favourites were Ktima Lindos (just along the main road into Lindos) best Sea Bass ever!! Brocolino in Lindos (fab Italian food) which we had to book and Philosophia in Pefkos, which had stunning views over Pefkos Bay at sunset. All in all one of the best villas we’ve ever stayed in and would certainly stay again and recommend! Thank you Nicola and Selina. You get 5 stars from all the Golden Girls!
