Popular destinations in Rhodes are:

 

Rhodes Town: Best to know one thing from the start about Old (Medieval) Town of Rhodes (Rhodos): It's not laid out on a grid -- not even close. There are roughly 200 streets or lanes that simply have no name. Getting lost here is not a defeat; it's an opportunity. Whenever you feel the need to find your bearings, you can ask for Sokratous, which is the closest the Old Town of Rhodes comes to having a main street.


Faliraki: Faliraki is situated on the East coast of the island of Rhodes, at about 12 km from Rhodes town. In Faliraki are a lot hotel chains and resorts located, that is also because of the 5 km long beach that runs there. It is mainly sandy beaches in this Bay of Faliraki, everywhere fluttering Blue Flags, this is a confirmation that the sea water and the beaches are very clean and well organized.


Lindos: You’ll have three beaches to choose from in Lindos: calm Pallas Beach, secluded St. Paul’s Bay, and the main beach, Megali Paralia. Save time to explore the town itself, too. It’s a bit of a hike up to the acropolis, but the view is magnificent.


Pefkos: is a well known beach resort located on eastern coast of Rhodes, just a few kilometers south of Lindos, 56 kilometres (35 mi) from the capital city Rhodes. The island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands, on the eastern Aegean Sea, just a few miles from the coast of the Asia Minor.


Ixia: Ixia lies at the North West part of Rhodes at a distance of about 7 Km from the city of Rhodes close to Rhodes International Airport. Some of the best hotels in Rhodes can be found here. The beach is mainly organized and during the summer season it gets rather windy with large waves, so is suitable for wind surfing and sailing. Ixia also offers spectacular sunsets!


Lalyssos: The town is situated near the site of the ancient Doric polis of Ialysos, homeland of the famous ancient boxer Diagoras of Rhodes. The municipal unit consists of the town Trianta/Ialysos and the surrounding areas. While official sources use Trianta as a name for the town, and Ialysos for the whole municipal unit, unofficial usage tend to favour Ialysos to describe both the modern town and the municipal unit.

 

If you want to experience something way different than Rodos, you can take a visit to Naxos with his beautiful harbor and nice and romantic restaurants. Even the girls from Naxos are way different than the greek women from Rodos.
