There are lots of interesting other places to visit when you are in Rhodes than the ones we mentioned before.
The beaches of Rhodes: We are not an expert on lying on the beach for a day, but there are wonderful beaches all over the island. Keep in mind that if you visit Rhodes in the months July and August it can be very crowded in some places. If you don’t like mass tourism, we would not advise you not to go to Faliraki for example. We passed through it on our bikes and it is very ‘plastic fantastic’ to our option. But hey, that just our opinion.
The Acropolis of Rhodes: Located at the top of the hill you can find the remains of the Acropolis of Rhodes and the stadium that is pretty much intact.
Kalithea: This beautiful bay with hot water springs is recently renovated. It cost about 2 EUR to enter the park, but it is worth every penny.
Parc Rodini: This nature park is full of old trees and authentic looking bridges. The park does need an upgrade, so if you like the authentic look make sure you visit it in the near future. Next year it could be completely different because Rhodes is perfecting its local treasures.
Petaloudes, the Butterfly Valley: Visit this park to see trees full of butterflies. Especially in May, a special butterfly is attracted by the gum trees.
The ancient city of Kameiros: A big historical site in the North of the island including a temple of Athena and an Acropolis.
Embonas: A traditional agricultural village that produces wine.
Of course, there are many more small interesting villages that are worth visiting, but we can’t cover them all. Take your rental car and discover the island by yourself and get to know Rhodes and it’s locals a little bit more. This is our final post on Rhodes island and we hope you enjoyed it.
