Rhodes island is so beautiful and big.

 

Close off season. The off season in Rhodes is relevant. If you book in May or September, the crowds are already as high as on other islands would be considered full season.

 

Travel by plane. It’s the same money by boat, maybe cheaper depending on when you book. So you can go to Rhodes even for 4 days. If you are afraid of airplanes, read this. If you are thinking about your ecological footprint, then travel with you by boat.

 

Rhodes Rent a car.

Because it is a large island, it also has a great offer on rental cars. We paid a total of 60 euros for 4 days.

Experience the 80s. In Rhodes it was the first time in my life that I chose to stay in a hotel and not in rented rooms.

Although off season the hotel was full and we were the only Greeks. All the rest were Scandinavian families. For tourists the tour is probably the best thing in the world and was available from early in the morning at the bar. There was a program every night. Greek night with two girls who helped tourists learn syrtaki and shout “opa”, disco night with dj, night with Italian troubadour and karaoke night, which unfortunately we lost, because that day we left.

 

Go to Anthony Quinn Beach.

Anthony Quinn Faliraki did not like her, as she had said in this interview with Hatzinikolaou, but the name on the beach remained and is very nice.

Sit on the cliff of Oasis Beach Bar.

One of the few beaches where you meet more Greeks instead of tourists is the Oasis in Kallithea. The most beautiful shadow I have ever sat. You feel like you are organized and free.

Go to Piges Kallithea.

Once you are in Kallithea, do not forget to visit the Springs of Kallithea. This is where the most moving moment in Greek comedy was filmed. The finale of ‘Bait’.

Go to Tsampika beach.

It has many nice relaxed -almost like improvised- wooden beach bars in a row.

Spend an afternoon in Lindos.

Lindos is more like a city on a Cycladic island. Take a walk in the alleys, climb the Acropolis (entrance 12 euros, students and unemployed for free). Eat in Mauritius and sip with a cocktail at Crazy Moon.

Go to the Valley of the Butterflies. Just for the name. Butterflies make their appearance in deep summer. We went prepared that there were no butterflies, walked the path along the stream and ended up in a cafe in front of a small waterfall that had not yet opened – probably because it was waiting for the butterflies.

 

Visit the Palace of the Grand Master.

You may not need to read this list to do this, but it really is a must. The Palace was built in the 14th century by the Knights of St. John, who ruled Rhodes from 1309 to 1522, but most of it was destroyed in 1856, when it was used as a fortress by the Ottomans. In 1912 Rhodes came to the Kingdom of Italy and the Italians rebuilt the palace in order to become the residence of Mussolini. Fortunately, he never enjoyed it.

Take the most beautiful walk in the ditch. There you will feel the real ‘Game of Thrones’ experience. The moat surrounds the old town and has nothing and obviously modern tourist inside (get water before entering). The moat also has a small theater where concerts are sometimes held – but they do, but we did not succeed.

Go one day to Symi and Halki.

Rhodes is a big island and has a lot to do. If you have more than a week on the island, however, you can visit Symi and Halki, two nearby beautiful islands.
