Lardos

The beautiful and friendly village of Lardos, is on the sunny south east side of the island, within easy reach to Lindos Town.

Lardos offers all the facilities you would expect of a modern holiday destination. There is a doctors surgery, dentist, pharmacy, hairdresser, exchange facilities, international telephone network, news agent, car, motorbike, and bicycle hire.

Life centers around the wide tree lined Lardos village square where many of the locals still go to draw natural spring water from the fountain, preferring it to the perfectly drinkable piped water supply. You will find many of the friendly locals enjoy sitting in the cafes (kafeneia) on the square, drinking Greek coffee or the local ouzo, while talking and playing backgammon (tavli).

The numerous local restaurants offer a variety of mouth watering selections of both Greek and international cuisines. By day, organized excursions are available to Lindos Town, and the Acropolis of Lindos, trips around the island, shopping trips to Rhodes Town and to the ruins at ancient Kamarios and the Monasteries.

Sailing trips are also available to the island of Simi and to Marmaris in Turkey. By night, local bands will occasionally play live music on the square and plentiful bars do take on a more modern flavor of music. Alternatively, the local hotels also offer contemporary discos and Karaoke evenings, while Lindos, with its more extensive night life, can easily be reached by taxi or bus. Your enjoyment of the night life may include spontaneous Greek dancing in a bar, restaurant, or in a Greek wedding.

Reviews & comments

I have stayed in and around lardos since 1997 sometimes twice a year, and can recommend the village which has all amenities you need, shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, chemist etc. The locals are very friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit even if you are just passing through.

Psinthos

Very close to Faliraki is village Psinthos. Characteristics are the running waters in fountain Fasouli and the age long plane trees, which reveal the beauty of Rhodes countryside.

Laerma

Apart from a couple of excellent tavernas there is not much tourism happening in Laerma, although one of the main reasons for perhaps visiting the area is the Monastery Taxiarchis Michail at Tharri 4km southwest.

Afandou (Afantou)

The village of Afandou has been founded in times where pirates used to overrun the islands of the Mediterranean. During that period, people used to leave the shores in order to seek shelter in the inland. The village of Afandou took its name form the word "áfandos ", which in Greek means "invisible", because it could not be seen from the sea.
