Holidays in

A fun beach retreat in Rhodes

If relaxed days at the beach, a pretty village, ancient historical sights and tasty Greek cuisine sounds like your idea of heaven, you’ll love Lardos. This village on the southeast coast of Rhodes is a place where you can sample classic Greece at its best. Lardos holidays often begin at the traditional square – it’s where people gather to sip a coffee or beer, or dive into an ice cream on sunny days (of which there are many).

The village also has a range of great restaurants where foodies will have ample opportunity to taste Mediterranean cuisine and just-caught seafood. A short walk south from the village is Lardos Beach. Considered one of Rhodes’ best beaches, it’s lapped by shallow, clear waters and lined with sunloungers, making unwinding here a breeze. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are water sports on offer for all abilities, from inflatable rides to windsurfing. Plus, with historical sights nearby, you can be certain you’ll never run out of things to do on holidays to Lardos.

Your Lardos questions, answered

Not at all. You can mix laid-back days on Lardos Beach with cultural activities including visits to historic monasteries and churches, a Byzantine castle and a folklore museum in Lardos itself.

There’s a huge choice of restaurants, all varying in price and style. You’ll find everything from seafood to traditional Greek cuisine, in casual snack bars, relaxed tavernas and more formal spots.

Although Lardos is a village, there’s plenty of nightlife. You might catch locals playing music in the square, while many of the hotels put on live karaoke and music nights.

Best things to do in Lardos

Explore the castle

The remains of a 12th-century Byzantine castle can be found within walking distance of the village. From here, you’ll get great views of the surrounding hills.

Go wild for water sports

Lardos is well known for its exciting water sports, and families and couples alike will enjoy having a go at jet skiing, wake boarding, parasailing and more.

Laze on the beach

The beach is a short walk from the village, and well worth visiting for its child-friendly crystal-clear shallow waters. Sunloungers and refreshment facilities make it even easier to settle in and unwind.
