Sunny Rhodes, the island of the sun god, has amazing history, a choice of more than 30 beaches and Greece’s largest waterpark.  Breathtakingly beautiful Symi is a peaceful hide-away.  And tourists flock to Kos, where modern medicine began 2,500 years ago, to enjoy a healthy dose of relaxation and fun. There’s so much to do on Rhodes, second largest Dodecanese island. Fantastic shops, lovely beaches, traditional villages, scenic countryside and ancient temples are within easy reach. Rhodes Town, with its cobblestoned old city, and Lindos, topped by an ancient acropolis, are wonderful places to shop, eat, drink or just chill out. Families love the child-friendly water park in Faliraki, the largest in Greece. Beware the kamikaze slide! A toy museum and butterfly farm are among the many other attractions.


Prepare for amazing Symi where pastel-coloured houses climb up behind the lovely harbour. Sponges and spice stalls offer a friendly welcome in Yialos, a place of boutiques, cafes and bars. Stroll through the quaint upper town to reach the medieval castle. Lots of small beaches tucked away in hamlets and coves can be reached by water taxi, bus or hire car. Well-marked footpaths make Symi a great destination for walkers.

Beautiful Symi


Then to green and friendly Kos where lively resorts like Kardamena and Lambi have great nightlife but Kefalos, Tigaki and Aghios Fokas are quieter places for families. The beaches are great. Picturesque villages in the mountains and countryside are great for chilling out. Zia is said to be the best place to enjoy the sunset. Kos Town has organised beaches, a lovely harbour, busy shops and cafes, a ruined castle and, possibly, the oldest plane tree in the world named after Hippocrates, the Greek ‘father of medicine’, who lived on Kos 2,400 years ago.
