What to see and do on a Holiday to Rhodes
Rhodes enjoys a fascinating history that dates back to Neolithic times. Over the centuries, the island has been settled and invaded by the Minoans, Mycenaeans, Dorians, Phoenicians, and Ottomans, and their legacies can still be seen at archaeological sites around the
island. Some of the most interesting sites are the Acropolis of Rhodes, with its remaining rounded columns of the Temple of Apollo, and the ancient city of Kameiros, with its expansive ruins of gridded streets, temples, and residences.
A holiday to Rhodes would not be complete without some time spent on the beautiful beaches that fringe the island. The north coast is where you will find lively stretches of sand where you can soak up the rays on a sun lounger, take part in an exciting beach volleyball match, or hit the waves for some water skiing or snorkelling. The resort of Faliraki is renowned for its excellent beach bars and cafes, Afantou is popular for its long golden sand beach and nearby golf course, and windsurfers in the know head to Ixos.
For spectacular views over the Aegean Sea and to the surrounding islands, visitors on a holiday to Rhodes can make their way to the Castle of Monolithos. The remains of this 15th century Venetian castle rest on top of a steep cliff, and can be reached by a narrow staircase that winds its way 100 metres up the rock face. Although it is a challenging climb, those who stick it out are rewarded with incredible panoramic views of the blue-green sea and the western coast of Rhodes.
