The jewel in Rhodes' crown
Lindos holidays offer you one of the prettiest villages in Rhodes, with rugged cliffs, crystal clear waters, whitewashed buildings, and sweeping hills. The main attraction is its beautiful bays where you will see luxury yachts and little boats, as well as golden sands backed by beach bars and restaurants. It’s the ideal base from which to explore, as well as offering its own atmosphere and range of amenities.
Couples and families are well catered for in Lindos. The pedestrianised streets of the town are surrounded by tavernas, restaurants, bars, and little boutiques. Spend long, lazy days soaking up the warm sunshine, or try some of the many watersports on offer here. Families can try glass bottomed boat trips, while older visitors enjoy snorkelling and scuba diving. For the perfect romantic trip book a boat excursion over sunset and take in this spectacular sight over a glass of champagne.
Lindos is protected by its UNESCO status, meaning it retains its original charm and many of its traditional whitewashed buildings. While in Lindos you’ll be surrounded by history and culture, so a visit to the 4000-year-old Lindos Acropolis is a must – after you’ve meandered through the steep ancient footpath you’ll find yourself at the very top, where breathtaking views of the village below await you.
Rhodes Town, which is an hour’s drive away, is home to a 14th century Knights’ palace. This rare example of Greek Gothic architecture has 150 rooms – 24 of which are open to the public. While there you can see a rich collection of paintings, 16th and 17th century jewels, and other interesting historical artefacts. If, however you’d prefer to stay in Lindos, you can take in the Turkish and Byzantine architecture, while lunching at one of the pavement cafés or Greek restaurants.

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.

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