EATWhether you’re looking for international gastronomy or traditional Greek cuisine, there’s something here to suit all taste buds. You might dine from a Lindian rooftop overlooking the acropolis, in a taverna tucked away in the cobbled streets of Rhodes Old Town or sample a beachside grill in Pefkos – the choice
is yours. Local delicacies include ‘Pitaroudia’, chickpea fritters, or ‘Giaprakia’, vine leaves stuffed with meat,
rice and herbs. And of course, there is no better way to sample a selection of local plates than with a Greek Meze.
SEE The island’s diverse scenery combines endless stretches of sand, lush wooded valleys, rugged chalky mountains and breathtaking sea views. From the north, you can enjoy views across to Turkey, just 8 miles away. There’s a fantastic beach scene with several iconic spots including St Paul’s Bay and Anthony Quinn’s Bay. Charming Greek villages tucked into the hillside are waiting to be found as well as many other hidden gems including the scenic Seven Springs and the Valley of Butterflies.
DO Rhodes, better known as the island of knights, is packed full of history and is much more than just a beach holiday. The medieval old town is a maze of cobbled streets effortlessly combining a cosmopolitan vibe with its historic past. The ancient Lindos acropolis is a must-see and the ice bar here offers a unique and refreshing break from the sun. Boat trips are a great way to see the island and short ferry ride takes you to the glamourous Greek island of Symi – think colourful neoclassical architecture and old world charm, a photographer’s paradise!
