Pefkos (Pefki): Pefkos: a beautiful place to visit
Posted on January 6, 2017 by helva annakie
Pefkos is a beautiful place to visit, the sun, sea and the relaxed feeling, I have been to Pefkos twice and loved it both times. I really cannot wait to go back.
It's a lovely walk down to the beach, I love the beach, the views and the shopping area. there is plenty of bars and Restaurants. the people are very friendly.
Traveling from Pefkos to other parts of the island is easy because the bus stops are not far from the hotels. You can easily visit Rhodes town, Lindos, and Lardos and other places in between.
I love it!

Anthony Quinn: Stunning cliff walk
Posted on August 1, 2016 by Colm O\'Mahony
Wondered why we were the only 'old' people in this bay. Apparently it's the sharp stones? Hadn't noticed myself. Anyway I can't understand why no one has mentioned the most stunning cliff walk from here over to Faliraki. It's only about 2 miles in total but even the first mile to the top of the ridge is amazing. This walk should be in Rhodes top 10... even young people might enjoy it, as they cope so well with sharp stones.

Haraki (Charaki): Life in glorious technicolour
Posted on June 30, 2016 by Martin
I came to Haraki for the first time in June 2006 for 2 weeks holiday. and on the fourth day, I bought a house, as one does! I'm celebrating 10 years of living life in colour this August. Why not book a cheap flight and have a bit of it for yourself !?!
Hey, and while you're experiencing the REAL Greece, treat yourself to a copy of the Daily Mail, find a comfy beach front bar, and laugh yourself silly at the DM's anti-Greek propaganda, while you enjoy an enormous Gordon's and tonic (3 to 4 euro) an industrial sized glass of wine (2 euro) a pint of premium ice cold lager (2 euro) or a splendiferous cocktail (from 3 euro).
Hungry ? Take you pick from around a dozen friendly family run tavernas on and around the pedestrian-only promenade, serving fresh local produce. A substantial meal for two with drinks on the beach front can be had for under 20 euros. A full English breakfast will set you back as little as 4 euro including tea, coffee or juice.
Still smoking ? Even better. Bring your credit card and take up to 3200 English branded cigarettes each back with you (4 euro / £3.25 for 20). Result....? A week\'s \"free\" holiday. If you can stomach the Greek brands, you might even save enough to cover a fortnight.
So get on the interweb quick sharp and book your flights and accommodation, and we\'ll see you in Haraki Bay soon !
Acropolis of Lindos: Lindos Acropolis
Posted on May 30, 2016 by Lisa maylum
Went to visit the Acropolis last week.
Went by donkey taxi which was great and was totally amazed at this site, well worth going to see and feel this ancient place.
On the day it was free to get in also extra bonus!
The castle of Kritinia (Kastellos): Awesome
Posted on February 24, 2016 by Bernadette Alloway
I had the chance to visit this site. It is absolutely astonishing. the people in the area are very nice and there is a small museum about local culture nearby which is worth checking out. The ruins themselves are a nice stop. It is not an entire day excursion but the view is to die for and it is a nice place to get away from the touristy bustle of larger areas.
Tsambika Monastery: Miracles do happen
Posted on November 10, 2015 by Rhodes is a heaven....
This summer my husband and I were preparing for IVF and doctor said that we should go for a holiday to relax before the process starts. We decided to go to Rhodes as I wanted to visit Tsambika Monastery and to pray there for a help. On the way to the monastery I was very emotional and was crying all the way up. One Greek lady was passing buy with her 10 years old daughter, smiled at me, showed in direction to her child and simply said her name is Tsambika. That gave me strength and more belief. When we reached the church I couldn\'t calm down and I was crying all the time. That saw the man who is working in the Monastery. When he found out why we were there he told me that he has something to give me. He gave me burned wick from the holly oil, holly oil, and white ribbon. He gave us instructions how to use all of these in next 40 days and to pray. When we came back from holiday our IVF procedure started and only what I can say now is that I am 3 months pregnant and very thankful to Agia Tsambika!
Believe and miracle will come true.
The Venetian castle of Monolithos: Castle of Monolithos
Posted on November 1, 2015 by Bill Williams
I was just there is September...really amazing views and well worth the stop. This article say\'s Venetian Castle and continues on to say it was built by Grand Master D\'Aubusson of the Knights of St. John...so it would not be a Venetian Castle.
Rodini park: Not exactly what is advertised above.
Posted on September 21, 2015 by llew
Went there expecting this lovely park and found an abandoned wild area. The park could be all that is promised but now it has gone totally wild. Peacocks fight with cats for food left in a cat feeding area and koi Carp and terrapins swim in dark,dank waters.
Later heard that at night all the local drug users hang out here and there is a lot of violence there. Not exactly what is advertised above.
Haraki (Charaki): Greeces little gem
Posted on August 24, 2015 by Barry Morrison
I first went to Haraki in 2005 after my wife went with her friend in 2004 and she kept telling me how beautiful a place it was and how wonderful and friendly the people were..I did not believe her at first but I tried it anyway,.. Cut a long story short we have been going back every year and the rest is history... Going back on sept 2nd , just a few very short days away.
