Overview of Rhodes

Thanks to its short distance from the UK and hot summer temperatures, holidays to Rhodes have long been a firm favourite. Rhodes is the largest of Greece’s Dodecanese islands and it has something for everyone. The main nightlife destination is within Faliraki, but you can find a more laid-back tropical paradise on the coastal gem of Lindos. There are plenty of things to enjoy between these two destinations, too. Relax on unspoilt sandy beaches, enjoy a boat cruise, try out diving or sample the mouth-watering local fare in one of the many quaint eateries.

Things to do in Rhodes

Around Nimar Villagio, guests are spoilt for choice with things to do. Immediately surrounding the apartments is an expanse of harmonious countryside; the perfect place to enjoy a quiet afternoon walk. Stroll just 15 minutes into the centre of Afandou’s Village Square and you’ll be just seconds from Afandou’s famed beach, a peaceful, sandy shoreline perfect for relaxing. Holidays to Rhodes wouldn’t be complete without exploring Greece’s intricate history. Rhodes has much to offer on this front as you can visit the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes, or even the historic ruins of the Acropolis of Rhodes. Whatever your reason for holidaying, Rhodes has it all. Days are easily spent enjoying the glistening sea under the warm glow of the sunshine, or exploring local eateries, shops and history. Day seamlessly melts into night and Rhodes becomes a gem amongst both the Aegean Sea and Mediterranean Ocean.

Resort Summary

Sunbeds and watersports equipment are easily available, and you can also explore the fascinating caves and rocks further down the coast.

Armed with your drinks and snacks you could spend most of the day sitting in the old village square, taking breaks for shopping and then exploring the church of Pagagia Katholiki with its 17th-century frescos.

With numerous coffee shops, bars and restaurants surrounding the beautiful tree-lined square, Afandou is a wonderful place to unwind. The village is famous for its local carpet industry and you can buy an authentic local carpet to take home with you.
