Prasonisi: Be aware of the dangers
Posted on June 17, 2011 by Anon
Anyone visiting Prasonisi should be aware of the potential risk that kite surfers pose.
My wife was nearly hit by an out of control kite whilst posing in the usual spot where all the tourists go to be photographed where the two seas meet. It hit the ground at high speed just 2 metres from her, and without meaning to sound melodramatic, could have been fatal if it had hit her in the head. As it happens, the kite then took off side ways whilst the guy (who was learning) struggled to control it, knocking my wife flat on her face in to the water (another tourist was also hit and he dropped all of his stuff in to the sea). She was left shocked and shaken, with a nasty 10" cut on the back of her neck from where the cord caught her, and had a sore neck for the rest of the holiday.
We went to Prasonis like so many tourists do, without a thought of the risk to us. But the fact is that you are surrounded by kites and many of these people will be inexperienced. If one of those things comes down and hits you at 20mph+ you are going to know all about it!

Faliraki: Our 11th time
Posted on May 28, 2011 by Jane
We are off to Faliraki AGAIN end of August, it will be our 11th time. First went in 2000, it was full on in those days never saw any trouble we were in & bar street everynite / morning. People so friendly, beaches beautiful some lovely restaurants to be found, just ask locals to direct you to Manolis or Kabos. Get the boat to Rhodes town, well worth a visit! Go along to bar Bliss ln club street. Nicos & Yiota will make you very welcome best cocktails on the island. We are not young but Faliraki has something for everyone even a funfair!! forgot to mention the Orion restaurant great food lovely family run place great value for money. So give Faliraki a try. You wont be disappointed, and you will certainly will be made very welcome by the wonderful Greeks.

Visited May 2011. Well worth a visit. Tunnel should be one way traffic only!! Forest walk becomes a scramble higher up.
Water in tunnel about 10 inches deep fast flowing. Signposting to lake poor.

It's all been said so just my own take on the heaven that is Haraki. Beautiful place, beautiful people. We've been going for 8 years now and will be there in 3 weeks time. Can't wait! Looking forward to seeing our great friends and great hosts Despina, Vasili, Savas and Mikaili at Bottom's up! Despina, get 2 large Alfa ready, here we come!
Pefkos (Pefki): Simply the best
Posted on April 13, 2011 by Y freeman
We first went to Pefkos in 1998 and have returned almost ever year since. In all that time its hardly ever changed the odd bar may have opened but they are all very welcoming. Great places to eat, Lovely beach. I have recommended Pefkos to friends and family and all return after visiting. Its a true Gem of a holiday so much so i`m due to fly out for two glorious weeks on the 21st May 2011. By the way its 10 degrees hotter than Rhodes Town.

We first went here 8 yrs ago as just a quick week away, no idea were we was going to be staying allocation on arrival
we arrived late evening / early morn and went straight to bed, when we got up in the morm we thought we had died and gone to heaven, absolute paradise so much so that we have been back every year since and love this place and people soooo much we bought our retirement home and are moving out there this year. Cannot compliment the people enough for the welcome and reception that you get wherever you go in the bay of Haraki 10/10 EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lindos: So many memories...
Posted on February 21, 2011 by steve
Reading comments during my lunch break and it brought back so many memories. I worked there for the best summer of my life in about 1990 for Grecian holidays. So long ago now but such wonderful memories. Manolis bar, backgammon in Socs, crazy nights in lindos by night. The most fun group of reps and locals anywhere. To jeff and louise (Jenny may hols) Lisa, Hazel Tina and all at Grecian, Sally (airtours) and many others who gave me so many fantastic memories...where are we all now...older buty no wiser probably!! Yassou!
Pefkos (Pefki): Some feedback
Posted on January 27, 2011 by Jackie Warnock
I would like some feedback from people who have stayed in Pefkos with teenagers. Our boys will be 18 & 16 when we travel to Greece in Jun/Jul. They enjoy exploring eating out, some walking, culture & beaches. Any suggestions? Is there anything for them to do at night after dinner if they are not too tired from a busy day? Thanks.
