Here, visitors can spend days relaxing on beautiful beaches, or take a day trip to a nearby aqua park for watery thrills.

Despite the appealing seaside scenery, Faliraki really shines at night when groups of friends and those who like to party flock to the town’s Bar Street to drink and dance into the early hours. It isn’t hard to find, but it is hard to leave. There’s no doubting that holidays to Faliraki offer a fun-filled, and exciting break – all you have to do is keep up.

It’s only a 20-minute drive from Rhodes Town down to Faliraki; you can land at the airport and be on the beach within the hour. The coastal route takes only a few minutes longer, and it’s worth it for the views and sparkling sea. Rhodes Town is definitely worth exploring.

It’s one of a handful of mediaeval cities left in the world, living history waiting to be explored.
In addition to nearby Rhodes Town, there are plenty of diverse day trip options. Head inland for 30 minutes by car to the enchanting Valley of the Butterflies; a network of pathways and wooden bridges lead through the forest and from May to late September it is draped in butterflies. Or go south for 40 minutes along the coast road to Lindos and its archaeological sites covering 5000 years of human history. The village is packed with charming traditional cottages, overlooked by an impressive Acropolis. Rhodes may be small but it is packed with drama and discovery.
