Rhodes Town Beach (Elli)
On Ellis bay you don't pay for a sunbed, you only have to buy something to drink/eat to use them. We were only on the right of Ellis beach, but were very satisfied to be there. We felt safe there. There was one man looking out for everything there all the time. Drinks and food can be served by the sunbeds (little tables there) or in the shadow at the restaurant. On Windy Beach (on the west coast of Rhodos town) we were robbed for our backpack while it stood between our sunbeds and we where lying there. On Ellis beach that could not have happened. Very nice!
Going back for the tenth time in July.
feels just like home
It's like a cross between a ghost town and the wild west. A total nightmare if you are looking for the real culture of Greece. nast bars , grim.
The tavernas offer more than just fast food
New toilets are along the beach having been constructed this past winter
Camping is NOT possible. It is illegal
There is no card phone on the beach
My husband and I first stumbled on Haraki in 1988. I was taken in by 'Mikes Dad' and looked after every day. Yorgos passed away many years ago, however heavily pregnant and experiencing our first self catering holiday on the most welcome place on earth, Yorgos insisted we had breakfast with his family every day. My pregnancy almost took the life of both my Son and myself... But 23 yrs later we have gone back twice a year ever since. Haraki is like no where else on earth and if your lucky enough... Go!!! You won't regret it
I am looking for a location in Rhodes, away from the hoards, to get married. The spot at the monastery overlooking Tsambika beach through the pine trees looks idyllic. but can anyone please tell me if it is it reachable by road as we will have a few elderely guests?
Kiotari is an up and coming area, but dont let this put you off. Wonderful bus service takes you into perfect pefkos or the lovely Lindos. Year after year we visit Rhodes(Pefkos or Lindos)but fancied a change and booked Kiotari and it didnt dissapoint. The hotel was supeb and all facilities great, beach great too. Some nice little shops and cafes across the road. Lovely peaceful week, cant wait to return.
I love Lindos sooo much! going again this year and i'm counting down the days. It is our second visit and I am going with my parents and my 3 younger siblings. I love walking down to the town in the morning, buying some orange juice, standing at the sides of the paths and watching the donkeys galloping by, walking down the hill to the beach and finally diving into the cool, gentle, shallow sea. I can picture it in my head right now as I do everyday... Lindos is the most beautiful part of Greece by far! visit now! or you'll be missing out!
The small village of Asklipio stole my heart! The Greek village is so authentic, full of real warm wonderful Greek people. I spend time in the village. I've often sat and watch the kids play football in the town square, and in the evening the older ladies of the village sat along 'the wall' and watched the world go by. I've listened to the church bells calling the villagers, and often when they came out of church they have shared with me the 'special bread' from the service.
My favourite thing in Asklipio is Nik's Taverna, a family run taverna, and without a doubt in my opinion, the best authentic food in Rhodes. After trying many other taverna's Nikolas's taverna became a home from home. Nik and his lovely wife Effie own the place and nothing was too much trouble. Sometimes there were delicious things off the menu, Nik usually has something set aside, or if not he suggested wonderful new tastes for me to try.
One year I celebrated my birthday while in Rhodes and decided to eat at Nik's we let him know that we were coming for dinner. When we arrived, the table had been laid with a special cloth, flowers in a vase and a red rose for each of us, and not forgetting the most scrumptious chocolate cake that Nik had gotten especially for me. The villagers joined in when Happy Birthday was sung. Itâ€™s a birthday I will always remember and mostly due to Nik and his familyâ€™s kindness.
I am planning on spending my birthday at Nik's again this year June 1st see you there?
We got married at St Pauls Chapel on St Pauls Bay. The most beautiful, romantic place on earth!! All the locals congratulated us and we had cheers from all sun-worshippers on the beach. Fabulous, going back again this year!!! Our wedding planner Karen from Lindos Weddings is the most amazing and wonderful lady and her team are 100% supportive. Everyone should go and visit this beautiful place.
