Cheap flights to Rhodes
With more than 300 days of sunshine a year it is not difficult to see why the Greek island of Rhodes is one of the Mediterranean’s most popular holiday destinations.
Tourists come to Rhodes for its huge number of crystal clear turquoise beaches and ancient monuments. But this is also an island of staggering natural beauty, in addition to having an excellent tourist infrastructure that sees some of the best and most modern hotels offered at great rates. Tempted? Well you should be because this infrastructure also means there is literally thousands of things for year-round tourists to do, with action-packed resorts and isolated mountain villages. Whether you are into your water sports and water parks, or simply want to spend the day meandering around an ancient Greek temple or two, it’s all here.
Fancy a bottle of wine better than the average supermarket selection? Head for Marinos at 23 Ermoú, between the Old Town's Marine and Arnáldou gates.
There's always something worthwhile at the Museum of Modern Greek Art. The permanent collection is on Hourmadiés (100 Palms) plaza in Neohóri (Tues-Sat, 9am-2pm), with annexes for temporary exhibits around the corner on Ko Street, and on Platía Sýmis in the Old Town (Mon-Fri, 9am-2pm).
Go to Tsambíka beach, 28km from Rhodes Town, for the season's first swim. The sea bottom shelves gently, and the water is quite warm by late April.
