Named the sun island or island of light, there are hardly any days when the sun doesn't shine.
With its subtropical climate and over 3000 hours of sun per year, visitors can be guaranteed a good tan on their holiday. Rhodes is one of the most popular holiday islands in Greec
e - even Greeks themselves come to Rhodes for a holiday from the mainland!
The attraction is not just the long summer and the sandy beaches
but also the remarkably well preserved medieval city of Rhodes itself, castles galore courtesy of the Crusader Knights of St John and a hilly, forested interior with some lovely landscapes. Rhodes today offers the visitor a plethora of all year round leisure alternatives, covering all types of tourist activity.
The natural beauty of the island, the monuments from her long and often turbulent history, as well as the warm hospitality, all captivate the visitor.
The city has an excellent tourist infrastructure and offers a wide variety of entertainment (night-life, sports, cultural events, and day trips to wonderful Lindos and the neighbouring islands like Kos, Patmos, Karpathos, Kalymnos and Leros).
