seventh heaven rhodes

Follow us around the island of Rhodes along the coast

Rhodes is the biggest and most important island within the Dodekanes. Already in ancient Greece Rhodes was a major trading centre. In Medieval Times it was shaped by the Order of St. John. The Italian occupation between 1912 and 1945 left traces in architecture. On the other hand traces of 400 years of Ottoman foreign rule are very marginal. In 1947 Rhodes together with the other Dodekan islands became Greek again. Below we show you our insiders’ tips and sights, you surely must not miss.

Picturesque bays

Behind the tourist destination Faliraki and its long sandy beach and all kind of water sport facilities we reach the scenic bays Anthony Quinn and Ladiko. They invite to snorkelling. Afandou’s mile long gravel-beach was awarded a blue flag for superb water quality and is partly deserted or hardly visited. Close to the waterfront there is the sole golf-course on the island. The course is fairly difficult, architecturally and scenically appealing, but unfortunately quite neglected. On the other hand a green fee of € 35.- during the season is not very expensive. In a small forest just 4 km away from Kolimbia you can find the idyllic destination of Epta Piges (Seven Springs). The popular sandy Tsambika Beach and the bay of Stegna are worth visiting. Before you arrive at Rhodes’ most famous tourist attraction Lindos, you have a chance to refresh yourself at the beautiful sandy beach in the Agathi bay.

Lindos

the acropolis of lindos

Nestled on a hillside the whitewashed houses of Lindos wriggle around the hill at pictorial Lindos bay. In summertime the air in the narrow alleys on the way to the Acropolis is stuffy. Nevertheless countless tourists take the burden. The further you go south, the more deserted and calmer the coast becomes until you reach the most southern point of the island, surfers’ paradise Prasonisi.
