A Greek classic
Lindos is a Greek national treasure. No, really, this pretty resort on the east coast of Rhodes has got a preservation order – and as nobody’s allowed to mess with the place it’s a real untouched charmer. We’re talking whitewashed houses, donkeys ambling along car-free streets and history at every turn.
The resort scrubs up pretty well with its beaches, too. You’ve got a duo here. To the north, there’s sandy Pallas, while southbound you’ve got the sand-and-pebble St Paul’s, which is a prime spot for snorkelling. The pair of them give you a good quota of bars and eateries. And thanks to the surrounding hills, they’re both major suntraps.
The island’s Italian, Roman, Turk and Byzantine rulers have all left their mark – and nowhere more so than in Lindos. You get a history lesson at every turn here, from the imposing hilltop acropolis and Medieval walls right through to the town’s distinctive black and white chochlaki pebbled floors.
Close to Rhodes Town
About an hour’s drive and you’re at the capital, Rhodes Town. You’ve got a good day’s worth of sightseeing here with museums, galleries, Greek temple ruins and an impressive 14th-century knights’ palace to get round. And the cobbled passageways deal up plenty of bars and upmarket boutiques between camera clicks.
