Rhodes is the largest and most fertile of the Dodecanese islands. It offers all the ingredients for a truly ideal holiday, natural beauty, ancient ruins, modern sophisticated resorts, charming villages and a contemporary capital.It is not only an ordinary holiday resort, but also a cosmopolitan place of international reputation. Indeed, this relatively limited space with natural beauties is rightly considered a tourist’s paradise.
The hospitality of the inhabitants, the manners and customs religiously guarded by village folk, and the hundreds of ways the people have of enjoying themselves, whether at the traditional festivals, where everyone performs the traditional Greek dances – the sousta, the sirtos, the kalamatianos – accompanied by the violin and lute, or at the top quality cultural events that take place on Rhodes almost daily, or in the many night-clubs.
There are many reasons why Rhodes is one of the most popular resorts in the Mediterranean: the natural surroundings (crystal clear seas, many parks and recreational facilities), the bright sun and the warm hospitality of the islanders themselves.
