The pretty bougainvillea-lined streets and whitewashed houses of Theologos are the stuff of postcards. This beachside village on the west coast of the Greek island of Rhodes is brimming with laid-back charm, family-friendly activities and wonderful natural beauty. Despite its easy-going vibe and quaint shuttered buildings, Theologos holidays are great for adventure-lovers: the beach is famous for windsurfing, and the beautiful countryside makes for excellent off-road safari tours.
For those who prefer exploring the past, the quaint streets of the Old Town feature traditional architecture such as the beautifully picturesque Agios Spiridonas church. It’s worth bringing a sturdy pair of shoes to explore the surrounding hills, too. Studded with olive groves and wild flowers, they’re the perfect place for an afternoon stroll. Holidays to Theologos offer an authentically Greek island experience – sun, sea, countryside, history and plenty of beachside relaxation.
Go to church
Pay a visit to Agios Spiridonas, which stands proud in the old part of town. It’s a beautiful Greek Orthodox church with traditional whitewashed walls and a dramatic bell tower.
See the butterflies
Butterfly Valley is a nature reserve on the outskirts of Theologos. The magical forest is home to vast numbers of butterflies, which are most abundant in late May.
Go island hopping
Mandraki harbour on the north side of Rhodes provides easy access to the island of Symi, perhaps one of the last completely unspoilt spots in the Mediterranean.
