I am confused about where we can go in Rhodes.. Lindos, Faliraki, and the other areas? We wanted a quiet (but not too quiet- not clubbing) holiday where we can go chill out, fish, enjoy nice beaches and have fun evenings .. and not too expensively. Any advice where might be a good place?
I guess it would be best to rent a car to get from A to B or is the public transport eg. to the butterflies valley good to use?
I hope you'll advise!!
Personally i prefer Lindos but it's certainly not quiet in the day (so many daytrippers). Nights in Lindos are as lively or as chilled as you like as there's plenty of bars to suit all.
From Pefkos there's good local transport links to Lindos and Rhodes Town but car hire would be the best way to get around the island (and at your own pace).
I think the monastry on the mountain is Archangelos. Too steep for an old giffer like me.
haraki - 38 kms east side from rhodes town. very lovely quite isolated but good bars and tavernas, fishing - lots of locals owning the properties so maximum capacity for tourists = about 200 a geat place to unwind
lindos and pefkos already have alot of pull, but expensive.
the euro has pushed really prices up in greece and catering for yourself as a tourist will not be easy as the tourist supermarkets often stock things which are not suitable. village life will offer all the necessary shops butcher, baker, greengrocer, and supermarket catering for the local community. personally i find july - sept very hot and not the best time to see the island to enjoy walking at midday etc. april and first week of may can be dodgy - rain etc. june late sept and oct fab - nov although no charters also good. also low season would offer the chance for you to have a couple of nights on symi island using the local ferry/hydrofoil and finding a room once there - very special. renting a car on rhodes i would recommend for 2 or 3 days to see far flung places - dont go to rhodes town or lindos with it as these are served well by bus routes and there is no need to waste the cost of a rentacar on them. rhodes is a beautiful island - enjoy
can some tell me how far from ixia is lindos, is it a walking distance or taxi.
