A Greek classic
It’s not for nothing Rhodes is the most visited of all the Greek Islands. The biggest of the Dodecanese Islands, it comes with over 200 kilometres’ worth of coastline. As for where to start, Kolymbia – on the east coast – is spot on if you’re after a quiet break. The place keeps a pretty low profile, with a handful of hotels, tavernas and bars along its sand-and-shingle beach.
A pick ‘n’ mix of beaches
If you’re after something a bit more upbeat, venture further north to the island’s clubbing capital, Faliraki. The strip of bars and clubs here is almost as long as the beach. Head south along this stretch, meanwhile, and you get to Lindos, where whitewashed houses, cobbled streets and Medieval walls are the order of the day. Or make tracks for the island’s west coast and stop off in Trianda, a quiet, beachside village with a Byzantine monastery to its name.
On the subject of history, Rhodes is knee-deep in reminders of the past. The island’s star turn is Rhodes Town, a 10-minute drive from Trianda. If you’ve only got time to see one thing here, make it the Medieval citadel. Built by the famous Knights of St John, it’s one of the best-preserved in Europe.
