Flying to Rhodes

Island of the Dodecanese

Mediterranean maritime climate

18 degrees

3 hours and 30 minutes

On Rhodes, both the summers and the sandy beaches are long and idyllic. The sun shines abundantly and creates the perfect setting for slowing down. Relaxation has many faces on Rhodes. The island of Rhodes belongs to the Dodecanese, a group of 12 islands to the south-east of the Greek mainland, and has been a major tourist destination for Europeans for many decades thanks to its Mediterranean climate.

Places to visit in Rhodes

The ‘white town’ on the east coast, Lindos, is a unique sight and owes its name to the many white houses in the village. Lindos itself lies in a bay. Standing high above it, on a cliff, is the ancient Acropolis of Lindos with the temple of Athena Lindia. It can get very hot during summer, which is why we recommend visiting Lindos in the afternoon. Mandraki harbour has been a main port not only for Rhodes, but for Greece as a whole, for many centuries. It was mainly warships and fishing boats that dominated the view in the past, but today it is mostly private yachts and ships that are moored. You will recognise Mandraki harbour by the three windmills that feature on many postcards and travel guides about Rhodes.

Discover Rhodes

Rhodes is a hilly island adorned with different landscapes, such as meadows, pine forests and orchards with olive and apricot trees. The many jasmine trees ensure that butterflies have a good home. Especially in Petaloudes, also known as Butterfly Valley, you are surrounded by fluttering wings in July and August. You'll find more natural beauty at the thermal baths of Kallithéa, a spa built by Italians in the last century. The sulphurous spring water was believed to be medicinal. A number of Hollywood films were also shot here, such as The Guns of Navarone and Zorba the Greek.
