Kalithea

Kalithea is a popular package holiday resort close to Faliraki. There's no real village to Kalithea, it's more just a collection of large, all-inclusive style hotels sprawled out over a vast area. There's a few tavernas, supermarkets and car hire shops but minimal night life.

Afandou

Afandou is a town on the east coast of Rhodes. It has everything you need including tons of hotels, a huge selection of tavernas, restaurants, supermarkets, bakeries, travel agencies, vehicle rental shops, a 7km long beach and a golf course too.

Faliraki

Faliraki is towards the northern end of the east coast. In the past it's had a reputation as an 18-30 destination with large groups of drunken revellers filling the streets but it’s grown and developed over the years into more of a family friendly resort.

Gennadi

Gennadi is a village just south of Lindos on the south east coast of Rhodes. It's a working village as well as a tourist destination so it does feel a bit different to the usual tourist resorts with a more authentic Greek way of life shining through.

Ialyssos

Ialyssos is spread out over a large area with dozens of hotels, including all-inclusive style places close to the beach as well as many smaller ones too. There's an almost endless supply of restaurants and tavernas with Chinese, Italian and of course traditional Greek.

Ixia

Ixia isn’t really a village or town, it’s more a collection of enormous hotels plus a few restaurants and shops located along the main coast road between Rhodes Town and Ialysos. It caters mainly to package holiday makers with good bars restaurants and night life.

Pefkos

Pefkos is a small village on the east coast of Rhodes clost to Lindos. It's an ideal place for a laid back holiday as it's based around a large sandy beach that's easily walkable from most hotels and has a good array of dining and nightlife options.

Rhodes Town

Rhodes town is the capital and lies on the northern tip of the island. It's separated into 2 sections, the old town with it's cobbled streets and collection of historical sites and the modern, bustling new town with an almost endless amount of hotels, restaurants and nightlife.

Pyrgos

Pyrgos is a fairly compact and traditional Cycladic village with small winding streets and the usual white and blue houses. There's a good selection of hotels as well as restaurants and tavernas both on the main street and dotted around the town too.

Perissa

Perissa is an attractive village with whitewashed houses and volcanic scenery. It was mostly built in the sixties and some say it lacks the authentic Greek charm of other villages but it makes up for that with its relaxed sea side nightlife.
