Rhodes nightlife highlights in a nutshell

  • Visit the beach bars or the Casino Bar at Rhodes Elli Beach. Some fine restaurants are also to be found at this area.
  • On the west coast of Rhodes Town, beginning at the Diagoras Statue and taking the "Akti Mialouli" road towards the Aquarium, you will find many small restaurants, taverns and bars worth your visit.
  • Stroll through the Old Town and pick your favorite place. The most prominent bars and nightclubs are to be found around "Hippocrates Square", and on Menekleous street, where the "Sultan Mustafa Mosque" is located.
  • If you are a real party animal, Orfanidou Street on the west coast of Rhodes Town is perfect for you.
  • Faliraki offers a bit of everything: Lively nightclubs, easy going bars, international restaurants, and a shallow beach in case you like to take a night swim (assuming you had nothing to drink before - remember - do not drink and swim!)
  • Haraki is close to Lindos, and is a beautiful spot if you like to dine at the seafront. The food here is excellent. You will also find a couple of pubs for a drink afterwards.
  • Lindos is as stunning at night as it is during the daytime. The illuminated Acropolis and the beautiful narrow alleys are home to some of the best nightlife options on the island, and a sunrise to be remembered.
  • Pefkos is perfect if you are on holiday with your family. Easy going and relaxed, the area offers excellent options for going out with your youngsters.
  • Kiotari and Gennadi offer many beautiful beach bars, beach front fish restaurants and some of the most unspoiled beaches on the island if you like it more quiet and serene.
  • If you are a foodie, you should also try visiting one of the many villages, where you can find traditional local cuisine and ingredients of the highest quality.  Good examples are Embonas, Kritinia, Apollona, Archipoli and Psinthos. Since driving to the villages mostly requires driving through windy roars, we suggest you take it easy on the alcohol if you are not actually dining where you are currently staying.
