A castle-topped wedding cake stands tall on the eastern coast of Rhodes, a tropically green-tree base builds towards white-washed houses, narrowly separated by cobbled streets giving the illusion of one giant white structure, while these are overlooked by the magnificent castle battlements above.
An eclectic mix of homely history and beautiful beaches awaits your arrival when embarking on your holidays to Lindos, the ruins of Acropolis and reconstructed Temple of Athena stand contrastingly to the vibrantly blue skies, while small spurts of vegetation shoot up through the cracks giving the sights that inherently ancient feel Greece has become so well known for. Although, sticking around in the prettiest town in Rhodes can be a sight-seeing experience in itself, winding backstreets being the passages to adventure.
Long Lazy Days on the Beach
With three beaches to choose from, each offering something different, you’ll want to carefully plan your Lindos holidays before travelling. Lindos Beach is the best for families looking to get involved, with golden sands and lapping blue waters giving a good base from which to enjoy the numerous water sports that litter the shores, while tavernas and cafes provide the perfect places to cool off with a chilled cocktail or soft drink.
You won’t be short of things to do on St Paul’s Bay either, the rocky landscape and crystal clear waters allow for great snorkelling sessions and rock-pool raids for the kids to enjoy – a good place for a splashing time on holidays to Lindos. If you fancy a break from the hustle and bustle of the more popular beaches, then head to Vlycha Beach, this secluded stretch of sand is the ideal escape from everyday life, draining away the testing tensions!
Family Fun in the Sun
Along the coast are some scintillating examples of Greek beauty that have become synonymous with Rhodes; Pefkos isn’t too far away and perfect for a day drip on holidays to Lindos. From here you can catch a glass-bottom boat trip to see the teeming wildlife beneath the shimmering surface of the Mediterranean Sea, or perhaps a ferry tour to see the northern parts of Rhodes, encompassing the fantastic Faliraki where you can test out water slides in The Water Park.
If it’s architectural beauty and culture you’re seeking, then a trip to Rhodes Town will uncover the fortified Old Town, showcasing medieval, blissful Byzantine and Ottoman buildings which populate the city in majestic style. Whereas Kalithea will bring you back down to serenity if you fancy bathing in the sun for just one last time during your holidays in Lindos, enjoying the vibrant views of the Mediterranean blue as you soak up the calming vibes given off by the Greek sunshine and heat.
After exploring this lusciously lovable island, you’ll be happy to hear that Lindos offers a variety of cuisines to suit any prospective travellers, whether you want to gorge on traditional Greek dishes in Artemis, munch on locally sourced fresh produce at Zorba’s or feast upon the bountiful selection of barbequed delicacies at the Acropolis, you won’t be leaving for home feeling hungry after your Lindos holidays.
