Sun and history in Rhodes

With its long sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, plus an added dollop of history and culture on top, Kremasti holidays make for the perfect break. Start your adventure in this delightful Rhodes town by exploring some of the medieval buildings and ruins, including its ancient castle and Panagia Katholiki, one of the biggest and most beautiful churches on the island – art fans should make a beeline for the historic murals inside.

Kremasti is also not far from the famous Petaloudes Valley (The Valley of Butterflies), where visitors can witness the migration of millions of butterflies in the summer months. Above all though, holidays to Kremasti are ideal for enjoying some sunny downtime, whether that’s sunbathing and chilling on the beach or trying out windsurfing and other water sports. Afterwards, make sure you sample the excellent local food in Kremasti’s traditional Greek tavernas, where the wine and ouzo flows all evening.
