Lindos: my second home
Posted on January 13, 2006 by Emmario
I lived in lindos for almost a year in 2003,and I have been visiting for 6 years. Not only are the people fantastic but the atmosphere and the general 'picturesque' views are breathtaking.
If you are going for the night life i definately recommend Socrates Bar, the music is a range of jazz, soul, blues... well anything you like really!! The guys you will meet are amazing. Socrates, Theo (his son) George and Alex (very cute :).. very genuine people.
Also if you venture just outside of Lindos to Pefkos go to lindos by night. lovely place.
I agree with everyone on this board, Lindos has almost a magical quality...
Pefkos (Pefki): Fantastic!

Pefki (Pefkos) resort is an amazing place to go! I'm 14 and I still enjoyed it even in october! when I set off I thought it was going to be boring but I was sooo wrong it was so much fun. There was so much to do including the 2 pool tables and the pool table air hockey! They had great night life too and the karaoke was a great laugh! The staff are very friendly and entertain everyone they help in any way they can and I hope to be going back luv L.Ellis age 14.
Pefkos (Pefki): Not so much fun!
Posted on January 1, 2006 by Ryan Donaghy
Stayed in Pefkos which was far too long as there is nothing to do there. No shops, a few really poor cafes and quite unfriendly staff. Everywhere closes during the day time and at midnight. Not a place I will revisit. Excellent restaurants though!
Haraki (Charaki): We love the place
Posted on December 7, 2005 by Jeff Scott
We've been going to Haraki for some 13 years and have booked for September 2006. It is a fantastic resort - very quiet, peaceful and beautiful. As someone else has already said - if you want noise - don't go to Haraki.
My Recommondations in Haraki:
The best bar in my opinion is Jacks - fantastic cocktails - his Root Beer is stronger than it seems! Jacks also does the best breakfasts and crepes!
The best taverna in my opinion - Marias - low price and basic Greek cooking but with very tasty fish dishes and nothing is too much trouble.
Car hire - then visit Simeon at Haraki Car Hire.
If you go - don't miss the castle - a hard climb but worth the effort for the views.
We love the place and don't go anywhere else.
Haraki (Charaki): One of the best places
Posted on November 24, 2005 by Michael
One of the best places I have ever encountered, Especially Stehonos' scocktail bar.
I sprained my ankle on arrival at the airport but it did not spoil my holiday we hope to back in 2006

Haraki (Charaki): Our Second Home!
Posted on November 15, 2005 by Sarah and Colin
We have been 3 times to Haraki, and everytime we come home with more friends both Greek and English.
Hopefully we are moving there in the next couple of years, it is truly the best place on earth, I don't want to be in England anymore just out in Haraki with everybody.
Going again on 15 July 2006, counting down the weeks already, can't wait to see everybody.
We surprised everybody in October this year and partied all night.
IF GOD MADE A NICER PLACE WITH NICER PEOPLE HE KEPT IT FOR HIMSELF.
Kalathos: Rhodes, an island to remember!
Posted on November 13, 2005 by jean harris
Kalathos is a very clean and frendly village, and the 'bar on the road' is a great place to, but if you like to spend time on the beach this is not the place to go. The beach consisits of all pebbles, difficult to walk on, and if you should venture into the sea you will only need to go out a few meters and it drops away sharply, the bay is so deep that on our last visit there, there was a greek frigget anchored. One end of this beach is also military owned, but dont let this put you off, it is a great base to reach all parts of the island. In one direction Pefki, Gennadi and prassonissi, where the sea comes in from two directions. And at the other end of the island, Tsambika (Tsampika) beach (probably the best beach on the island) with its Monastary overlooking it, Falaraki, if you enjoy night life, and Rhodes Town, with its history and fantastic shopping. An island to remember.
Pefkos (Pefki): Wonderful place
Posted on October 18, 2005 by Ealine Leslie
Been to Pefkos in May 2003, July 2005 and returning tomorrow (oct). It's the most wonderful place on earth and the people are so friendly.
Stegna: Liked it immensely
Posted on October 12, 2005 by Matthew Greenland
We stayed for two weeks in Stegna in 2003 and liked it immensely. The children loved the sandy southern beach (the northern one is more pebbly but quieter) and there were enough tavernas to keep us occupied in the evenings for a fortnight. I would particularly recommend 'En Plo' - in the centre of the village - due to the friendliness of the owners who went out of their way to make us welcome. The make up of the tourists tends to be civilised British families, holidaying Greeks and Germans, who keep to themselves in a compound at the far end of the bay! There are several mini markets and at least two car hire places (next to each other, inevitably!). Stegna is not historic but is attractive and well situated, being not far from the main road and within half an hour of the splendours of Mediaeval Rhodes Town and ancient Lindos. Even in August it was not busy and there is no noisy nightlife.
Pefkos (Pefki): Fab Place
Posted on October 7, 2005 by anonymous
I have een to pefkos twice now and thouroughly enyoyed it both times.
Small and friendly place with plenty choice of tavernas.
2 cash machines - essential for todays travellers
both Nikita and marianthi studios are spacious and well situated.
beaches galore weather you are wanting sun loungers or a beach to yourself.
