Meanwhile, the town’s beaches, located in a sandy bay, are ideal for the whole family as you can sunbathe, swim and have a go at water sports, too. There’s also a fine selection of restaurants, serving Mediterranean seafood at price points to suit every wallet. So whether it’s a cultural hit, lazy time at the beach or great food you’re after, holidays to Lindos are sure to be memorable.
With its whitewashed buildings and narrow streets, Lindos is a beautiful town to walk around, and you’ll find a number of shops and street stalls selling handmade souvenirs.
