Rhodes like most Greek Islands has a very ancient culture that dates back thousands of years and today some of those ancient buildings still stand. One of the most popular destinations for the travellers on Rhodes interested in this culture is the historical sites of the Acropolis of Lindos. The Acropolis is very well preserved, and this allows the traveller to experience the amazing architecture that was being built by the ancient Greeks around 200BC. Many buildings have survived but the temples and places of worship in the site are the main focal points.
Rhodes like most of the Greek islands bathed in the Mediterranean sun has miles upon miles of glorious golden sanded beaches. Here the traveller has a choice due to the numerous beaches on offer. They can decide to leave the beaten path and wonder off and find some stunning little rocky cove with a small sandy beach which will have little to no other travellers here. The traveller can lay in tranquil silence in isolation or they can choose to frequent the more popular beaches where there are numerous amenities and activities on offer. The more popular beaches are wonderfully catered for with bars and cafes right on the beach front allowing for all day sun worshipping with the occasional trip to the bar or café for refreshment and sustenance. The traveller may wish to partake in some of the many varied water sports on offer from the numerous centres located about the island of Rhodes. Scuba diving is very popular here due to the warm clear waters and most PADI approved centres offer courses for beginners and more challenging dives for the more experienced diver.
Don’t forget to sample the local food and drink and if you are feeling particularly hungry try a local Greek Meze.
