We visited Embonas in September after contacting Rhodes City Hall researching my father who was born on Rhodes in 1898 and immigrated to the USA at age 15. I knew so little about him and his family and that was a life long dream to visit Rhodes. I learned that his family is from Embonas and he still has family there. Sad that I didn't get to meet my father's great-grand niece, she's 97 and her great-granddaughter who was visiting in Holland, but I learned so much about him. Pandellis Mouzouarakis. We had been spelling his last name wrong for many years. I want to return very soon. I really didn't want to leave.
I am leaving Halki right now. A deserted paradise end of October. Wonderful weather and perfect water for swimming. I cannot imagine this place during the peak season. It definitely worth a visit but absolutely in the low season!
Rhodes Art Park
We've been to the Rhodes Art Park after we had found it on the map of Rhodes looking for something new that we have not seen on our tour through the island. The people there were very friendly and told us everything about the park and how they operate. Artist from all over the world are invited to work on their artwork for free and if wanted, to leave them in the gallery and for sale. We have seen there many fantastic artworks of all kind and recommend all to come and see while spending time at Rhodes, it's really worth it.
Glystra (Glistra) Beach
This beach is now unsafe. Following this years large fire there is much broken glass, twisted metal & metal shards on the beach.
Wir waren oben bei dem Butterflies auf dem Rückweg sind an Psinthos Dorf vorbei gekommen, spontan haben wir dort angehalten und einen Kaffee getrunken, die Menschen sind dort sowas von freundlich und Herzhaft.
Wir können es nur empfehlen. Wenn ihr euch Mal eine kurze Auszeit nehmen wollt fährt zu Psinthos.
Zephyros Beach (also: Zefyros or Zefiros)
Loved Zefyros beach, we mostly stayed at this beach as most others were too overcrowded for us, stayed near the beach bar so we could go for cold drinks while relaxing on the €6 sunbeds - fabulous beach!
We stayed at Elafos Hotel last year for 1 night at the end of our holiday it was magical the staff are lovely we hope to return again this year.
I once met a lovely girl from Fanes - Voula - in 1966. She was a mathematics student going to Athens. Wonderful memories of a wonderful country!
My husband was born in Massari, and left for Australia in 1955. He is now 81 years but often talks about it and him and his brother Michael own land there as you drive in off the highway. Near the roundabout. We have been back a few times. Love From Australia
