Archaeological Musem: Museum Worth A Day
Posted on May 30, 2010 by G. Moore
The Archaeological Museum of Rhodes is far better than many have suggested. It houses a marvelous collection of pieces, sculptures, vases, reliefs, from the entire history of the island, reflecting the history of Greece itself. The old hospital of the Knights of St. John, restored now to some interest of its own, makes for the perfect setting for the archaeological exhibitions. They are set up chronologically, for the most part, and afford an excellent sense of the various periods in classic Greek history. Worth taking a day out of any schedule to visit and learn.
Pefkos (Pefki): A Wee Gem of a Place
Posted on May 24, 2010 by Donna
I was supposed to go to Portugal on holiday but my flight was cancelled at the last minute due to the ash cloud....I was gutted. My mate and I went to the nearest Travel Agents and told them, leaving tomorrow, from Edinburgh or Glasgow, must cheapness what can you get us? The agent said we can get you Pefkos, Greece, I was like ...where??? All I can say is what a fabulous place. Stayed at the Pekos Beach Hotel. Great people, great food and great weather. I will defo be back.

Pefkos (Pefki): Wonderful, quiet,and idyllic

We went to Pefkos last year after falling in love with Rhodes on a days cruise stop over the previous year. To 'Honest Ben' - Hire a car and take the road to Falaraki- about half an hour along the road there is a sign to the right saying 'three lovely beaches'. This leads you to three separate coves, each unique and interesting - with a great taverna on each. One in particular has several rock pools you have to walk across (deep enough to sit in to cool down) to the edge of the pools where ther are steps into cold , deep. Wonderful, quiet,and idyllic.

Haraki (Charaki): Can't wait to go back.
Posted on March 30, 2010 by beatrice henshaw
Haraki is heaven on earth, no booming bars, no young brits showing all they've got no mc donalds,no screamnig and shouting in the streets, just good food, the nicest people on earth, a warm wecome every where you go. I have never been to a place where time does'nt matter until I came here. Everyone you see in Haraki has a smile for you, locals and tourists alike. You can go out and stay out until four or five in the morning,and still stroll home as if it's half eleven. Don,t get me wrong laid back and chilled it may be but that does'nt mean you can't have a good laugh, in fact we've met some of the funniest people, the greeks have a fabulous sense of humour, and we can't wait to go back.

Posted on March 30, 2010 by sarah bruce
I went to seven springs in sep 2007 with a greek friend, after staying in lindos it was lovely to venture out into the island and taste "proper" Greece. it was a beautifull day and the food from the little resturant there was really nice and authentic. lots of really good photo oppertunitys by the river and the family of peacocks come rite up to ur table and sit with you! i really would recommend visiting next time your in rhodes, i will deff be going back (for the fourth time!!)
Tsambika Monastery: Tsambika
Posted on March 21, 2010 by Alessandro
My fiance and I arrived in Rhodes with a Cruise, and found out about the monastery talking to a few ladies in a shop, who told about the miracle. Well, having tried for a baby for over a year and a half, we thought we'd give it a try so we went to visit this cute little church (we didn't actually go up to the mountain barefoot) and prayed to our Lady. Such an experience!!! Believ it of not, after two weeks.... we were expecting!!! Thank you Panaya (name of the Our lady in Greek) we will return with Alessandro! We will never forget this experience!!!
Haraki (Charaki): Gem in the Island of the Sun
Posted on March 19, 2010 by BeePee
My wife is from Rhodes and we were there in July '09 so decided on a day trip to the beach at Haraki. That day trip lasted four days.
What a beautiful bay, beautiful people and such a relaxed and quiet atmosphere.
Bravo Haraki, we are coming back to our little gem.
Pefkos (Pefki): Fantastic!!!!
Posted on March 13, 2010 by Angela
We went last year as we have visited Rhodes (other resorts) before an we love pefkos the best, such a wonderfull place, plenty for us all to do, you don't get harrased by people outside the resturants and the food is great, plenty to do and see, and a special mention to the finas appartments where we stayed, going back in 2011 and we want to get married there. Go and you will return again and again.
Pefkos (Pefki): You guys are getting me excited!! (in the holiday spirit way!!)
Posted on February 25, 2010 by honestben
I loving reading through all the comments left, everybody seems to enjoy the place so much! The fact that so many return year upon year speaks for itself.
Me and my girlfriend have been looking at a first holiday together (alone) for a while and wanted something that we other havent done before, something new to both of us.
i like the idea of a quieter base that is pefkos and going to explore the rest of the island from there on a coupe days with a hire car.
Any must sees outside of pefkos??
we are booked in to evi studios from the 2nd sept 2010
Stegna: What a treasure
Posted on February 17, 2010 by Pam Stewart
What a treasure this little village is and long may it continue to be, I went with my children and felt at home, the people were friendly and made us feel very welcome,
We will return there this year and look forward to the wonderful relaxing holiday this resort has to offer.
