We were in Faliraki on a Family Vacation for 2 weeks beginning of September 2019. The weather was still very nice and warm, as was the ocean. There is a water park nearby, which was also very interesting and we had lot's of fun there with the kids. There is a small shopping complex on the main road, as there are also allot of restaurants and bars. It is also not far from Rhodes Town, just about 15 minutes by bus.

Just amazing for family holidays! We were there last year (2018) and we think Faliraki is the best resort on Rhodes for our children. The sea is not deep, and the facilities are just excellent. Highly recommended!

I think it is a nice beach offering many kinds of activities if you are looking for something like this. Parasailing, banana boat rides. Quite a large selection of places to eat of just have a drink and chill, including some nice beach bars. The closer you get to the centre the more places you will find available. The waters are warm. Great place for a visit, recommended.

We are off to Faliraki AGAIN end of August, it will be our 11th time. First went in 2000, it was full on in those days never saw any trouble we were in & bar street everynite / morning. People so friendly, beaches beautiful some lovely restaurants to be found, just ask locals to direct you to Manolis or Kabos. Get the boat to Rhodes town, well worth a visit! Go along to bar Bliss ln club street. Nicos & Yiota will make you very welcome best cocktails on the island. We are not young but Faliraki has something for everyone even a funfair!! forgot to mention the Orion restaurant great food lovely family run place great value for money. So give Faliraki a try. You wont be disappointed, and you will certainly will be made very welcome by the wonderful Greeks.

Was a bit worried at first when i heard all bad things about the place but there was no trouble while we were there and we were in the bars and clubs most nights.

I will never forget this holiday and this summer I will go again of course

Commented by ivana January 31, 2007

This is our first Europe holiday as normally go furtrher afield. We will definitely be coming back next year. What a fantastic experience. Please do not listen to the stories, come and try for yourself. The beaches are beautiful and clean. Losts of places to eat even McDonalds if you like that. If you want greek restuarants you have to ask the locals who are very helpful and will lead you in the right directions. It is very safe to venture out by yourself. My holiday was worth every penny.

Commented by Yvonne & Clive August 27, 2006

This place has a crazy nightlife! It is probably the best spot on the island if you intend to get wild in the nights. We loved every minute in Faliraki. Only problem was the crowds, but thats also what makes the place so intense.

Rhodes’ miniature horse, or Rhodian Pony, is an endangered horse species found on the island of Rhodes in Greece.

Though they are also known as Rhodian ponies they do not have typical pony traits, apart from their small size.
