: This is the place!
Posted on April 22, 2005 by Tore Svein Olsen
If you enjoy a relaxing period without the touristic stress factors (discos, noisy traffic) this is the place! Eating at the "Seagull" and swimming in the sea 10 meters away (30ft) before retiring to Maria's hostel also 10 meters away is just heaven. Why not get an impression at http://agatonisi.router.nu - the webpage I made out of love for Greece?

Gennadi (Genadi): Gennadi Village
Posted on February 8, 2005 by H. Muirhead
Gennadi is the best place to holiday in the south, the village is fantastic. If you like the Island life, then give the village a try, you will not be dissapointed.

Ixia: Vacation in Ixia
Posted on December 24, 2004 by anonymous
September / October we stayed at the Oceanis hotel in Ixia, Rhodes. We were told before we went that the main road was very busy which it was, and you had to cross to get to the beach. If you plan on using the beach every day there are a few hotels near by with underpasses, which we never used ourselves. We were quite happy with the poolside sunbeds and we enjoyed our stay very much and would go back again.
Walking along the sea front is wonderful and no different to most places abroad. If you hear any negative remarks about the busy road don't let it put you off visiting ixia, it is a beautiful place. The taxi services are excellent and cheap with set rates to everywhere. We went to Rhodes town several times.
I hope this helps you in making your mind up - try it!
Haraki (Charaki): The sound of silence
Posted on December 10, 2004 by lesley daye
This is really getting away from it all, great food very friendly tavernas & cocktail bars. Its starting to get a bit pricey to go there, so last year we took a last minute deal to Faliraki, after a couple of days got the bus down to Haraki rented a room and stayed for six nights. It really is getting away from it all.The new italian restaurant is lovely.

We were in Haraki for two weeks in May and again in September. Fantastic for a relaxing holiday. You could virtually hear a pin drop it was so quiet. Great place to chill out. Totally relaxing and definately for those looking for peace and quiet. Locals very friendly. Will be returning next year.

Haraki (Charaki): A beautiful setting with the castle ruins as a backdrop
Posted on August 20, 2004 by Anne Hyde
We have recently returned from Haraki and what a wonderful time we had.
A beautiful setting with the castle ruins as a backdrop. We travelled with Olympic Holidays and stayed in the Alia 1 studios which were basic but with the trees surrounding the studios, the rooms were not too hot Air conditioning was available at a cost but the rooms did have fans.
Haraki is not for the young looking for a lively resort - only a couple of bars and a few tavernas. The best places to eat we found were Jacks Bar for ice creams and Kiss for excellent burgers / chicken slouvaki. Opposite our studios was a restaurant run by Manolis and Dina (their daughter Demetria was the waitress) was far the best with huge portions of food (try the ribs and pork chops). Out of the 14 nights we were in Haraki, we eat there 9 times - the meals were averaging between 19 - 26 euros for a starter, main meal, a couple of beers and 1/2 caraffe of wine. All the locals eat there so it must be good.
Haraki (Charaki): Rhodes' best kept secret
Posted on July 28, 2004 by Peter Giles
Haraki is Rhodes' best kept secret. Not really an old fishing village but a summer retreat for the farmers of nearby villages of Malona and Massari from the high temperatures of the summer. The resort virtually "closes" for the winter although locals do gather at Jack's Bar.
Haraki offers a wealth of friendly bars, tavernas and restaurants and all are reasonably priced, although the "euro" has increased prices by as much as 50% since its introduction.
If you want 1000 decibel nightlife then Haraki is not for you. Good food, good company and peace and quiet are the order of the day; the beach, if too stony for many, provides good swimming - snorkelling being very popular. Masks, flippers etc can be purchased cheaply in one of several supermarkets or gift shops.
