Me and my lovely partner John are going here for a 2 week holiday in July - I am so so excited about going after reading all the great comments made! Ive been to many greek islands before and enjoyed them all - but ive got a great feeling that this is gonna be the best! Hope to meet some of the nice people that go there and enjoy great nights and relaxing days at the beach! Yipee! x
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.
Seven Springs (Epta Piges)
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!!)
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!!!
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.
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.
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
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.
I lived in Afandou a very long time ago - 1988 - and things may well have changed since then. It was a very traditional village and, whilst overtly friendly, one had to be very careful as the people were extremely 'gossipy' and could make life awkward. If you're just going on holiday, you'll most likely have a fabulous time, but if you are planning to live there, especially as part of a local family, beware.
Rhodes Old Medieval Town
Our daughter married in Kolymbia in 2008 and we visited Rhodes Town (although the heat was horrendous in June!) and vowed to return in a cooler month which we did last May. It was perfect. Sunny and warm during the day with a litle breeze at night - perfect! Although May was quiet in the Old Town in the evening it was amazing to see the Street of the Knights at 9pm with no turists and only the dim street lights to show the way - it was like stepping back into the 15th Century. The people are so friendly - walking through the old town it was 'Welcome to Rhodes' 'Enjoy your holiday' from everyone with no pressure to buy and always a cheery welcome. These people know how to win the hearts of their visitors. We took a day trip by boat to Lindos - very hot on the sea and take care on the slippery paths in Lindos and beware of the donkeys who stroll back and forth from the acropolis at the edge of the cliffs! There is so much to do in Rhodes Town both in the old and the new with a new walk every day and evening. You'll love it! We are going again in May 2010 and can't wait. Enjoy!
