Mandriko is situated on the western coast between Kalavarda and Kamiros Scala. It is a small village producing almost 1/3 of all vegetables for the whole island. From the road passing through, you can make out a large number of greenhouses and agricultural fields.
Inside this charming village you can enjoy a slower pace of life and the sunset views from here are absolutely breath-taking. A small square with a typical cafe and the church dedicated to Saint Lucy can be found here. In the evening many of the locals will sit back, sip on their Greek coffee of glass of ouzo, play backgammon and discuss the more important village issues.
The medieval castle that looks out over the sea towards Chalki, standing on a pine-clad hill on the north-western coast of Rhodes, welcomes you to the region of Kritinia - called the forgotten border region by the inhabitants of the village. What makes it really worth a visit is the wild beauty of the landscape.
