A Very Popular Choice

Rhodes has long been associated with being the party island. It’s big, brash and bold and receives by far the lion’s share of visitors to this island group. It combines all that is needed in a holiday island: beaches, nightlife, culture, scenery, greenery and comfort. 
The island lies in the south-eastern Aegean, close to the coast of Turkey. The city of Rhodes is one of the biggest municipalities of all the Greek islands with a population of 60,000. 
It is the cultural and financial centre of the area and mixes a rich historical past with a lively present. 
Rhodes is known as the ‘Sun Island’ or ‘Island of light’ as there are hardly any days when the sun doesn't shine. With its subtropical climate and over 3,000 hours of sun per year you can be guaranteed a good tan on your holiday. 
The town of Rhodes with its picturesque walled old city is situated on the northern point of the island. In ancient times the harbour here was guarded by the legendary Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but now it has been replaced by statues of deer. Nevertheless the old part of the city has plenty of wonders still to offer and the modern part of the town is just as vibrant. 
The rest of the island offers miles of beaches, interesting archaeological sites and natural beauty spots. The best beaches are on the east coast, between Faliraki and Lindos. Lindos is renowned as a particularly picturesque town that has been designated a protected historic settlement. The island provides holidaymakers with a vast array of  all year round leisure alternatives as well as an excellent tourist infrastructure offering a wide variety of entertainment and day trips to neighbouring islands like Kos, Patmos, Karpathos, Kalymnos and Leros. More info
