Luxury Rhodes Holidays

Whitewashed towns and turquoise bays

Rhodes

Not only is Rhodes the biggest of the Dodecanese islands, but it's also the sunniest and most-visited Greek island, boasting around 3,000 hours of sunshine a year.

Its coastline is edged with sandy and pebbly beaches, its interior is blanketed with pine forests and olive groves, and its capital is home to one of the finest walled towns in Europe. As well as its famous old town, Rhodes Town also has a cosmopolitan side, with restaurants, bars, boutiques, and a pair of beaches (one sand; one shingle).

Further down the coast is the seaside town of Lindos, where sugar-cube houses climb up a hill towards an ancient acropolis – a treasured memento of the town’s history featuring incredible views and archaeological gems, including temples and castle towers.

If you’re getting itchy feet, head for the harbour at Rhodes Town. From here, boats push off for day trips to picturesque Symi, a pretty isle with a colourful port town.

In the ancient harbour of Rhodes is a beautiful Greek Orthodox church. Step inside the cool interior to see the most impressive and colourful Greek frescoes.

When staying in Rhodes, be sure to visit Rhodes Old Town. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest of its kind in Greece, with kilometres of walls enveloping the maze of narrow medieval alleyways.

Destinations in Rhodes
Ixia
Ixia is the closest resort to the island capital, Rhodes Town. The long beach features both lounger-lined stretches and wilder pine-backed patches – and it all comes with city views.
Kalithea
Kalithea settles south-east of Rhodes Town, where the beach is long, the hotels are luxurious, and the sea views are expansive. Beachfront spa hotels are the theme here.
Lindos
Lindos has courted royalty since Classical times – you can see its hilltop heap of acropolises, palaces and theatres for miles around. Lindos Beach and St. Paul’s Bay bookend the town.

Flight Information

The flight to Rhodes is around 3 hours 45 minutes from the UK. 

When to go

Rhodes enjoys the most sunshine of any other Greek island – 300 days a year, in fact. Temperate springs and long, dry summers give you plenty of time to visit. The earlier months of the season suit sightseeing,  while the mid-summer months of July and August push 30°C – perfect for keen beach-goers. Even in the height of summer, the island’s cool winds take care of any humidity. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece

Tipping

In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
