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.
Got a taste for Greek music beyond the Zorba soundtrack heard in tavernas? Satisfy it at either Manuel Music in Rhodes New Town (93 Amerikís) or at Sakellaridis in the Old Town (9 Platía Mousíou).
Don't overlook the Museum of Modern Greek Art (Tues-Sat 8am-2pm) on "One Hundred Palms" Square, which contains the best collection of such art outside the mainland. Temporary exhibits fill annexes around the corner and in the Old Town.
The restored Pigés Kallithéas, 7km out of Rhodes Town just before Faliraki, an art-deco folly from 1929, is enormous fun, with its swimming lido and upscale grotto-bar, palm-ringed rotunda, and larger complex above with a small museum. Daily from 8am, closure variable (3pm or 8pm). Ample parking for own transport, or arrive by any bus between Kallithá and Faliráki.
