Paradisi, Rhodes

Paradisi is a traditional village on the northwest coast of Rhodes where you will find many restaurants, byzantine churches and friendly people. The bus service from and to Rhodes city is excellent.

Paradisi is a village on the west coast of the island, just off the "Diagoras" International Airport of Rhodes. It is a traditional village where centuries-old houses happily alternate with modern constructions. The lively village square is where the main socializing happens and it is here that you will find a large amount of cafeterias, bars and restaurants.

The village's endearing name "Paradise" is reminiscent of the superb gardens that once stood here, having featured exotic flowers brought by the Arabs. Nowadays, the name Paradisi suggests the beauty of the surrounding area. The main road from Rhodes Town heading south, goes straight through the village, and one should be careful when doing so as the road is extremely narrow and takes a lot of traffic, including buses, trucks, cars, pedestrians and of course motor bikes.

Paradisi is well known for its bakeries; as a matter of fact, one may find many of such establishments situated on the main road, giving off the unique aroma of freshly baked bread and delicacies.

The beach in Paradisi is pebbly and well-organized with water sport facilities and canteens.

As for the sunsets, these are certain to create memories to bring back home to.

There are many Byzantine churches, both within the village and in its immediacies. The celebration of Saint Marina at the end of July is something one should make a point of experiencing. The locals are extremely hospitable and one can enjoy the festivities outside the church.
