Overview of Rhodes

The largest of Greece’s stunning collection of Dodecanese islands, Rhodes is also the capital island of the group. Holidays to Rhodes are popular among Greek island-hoppers for a long list reasons, with the pristine waters of the Aegean Sea, its golden shoreline and 300 days of sunshine a year merely skimming the surface of what’s on offer. The Rhodos Horizon Blu is centrally located and just a stone’s throw away from many monuments, attractions and scenic routes through the picturesque mountains. Scenic drives through the mountains and woodlands are highly recommended, although you should also take the time to tuck into the delicious, fresh local cuisine or dance the night away in one of the islands’ many clubs and bars.

Things to do in Rhodes

Aside from its obvious natural beauty, enticing turquoise waters and gold-sand beaches, holidays to Rhodes are encouraged because its location is a great gateway to other popular destinations, such as those in the Cyclades islands, including Mykonos and Santorini, or the fellow Dodecanese islands, such as Kos and Leros. Popping over to Turkey is also easy, with ferries leaving the port daily. However, within Rhodes, and especially from the Rhodos Horizon Blu, there are plenty of monuments to be explored. This includes the impressively preserved Acropolis of Lindos in the traditional village of Lindos, and the UNESCO World Heritage Medieval City of Rhodes and the Palace of the Grand Masters. The world-famous Valley of the Butterflies and Anthony Quinn Bay are also well worth a visit. It’s time to find out why Helios, the God of the Sun, declared Rhodes as the most beautiful island in the Aegean Sea! Live the islanders’ dream and hop over to Rhodes, the island of the Knights and hub of ancient history, modern nightlife, natural beauty and culinary excellence! The Rhodos Horizon Blu provides the perfect base from which to explore this wonderful location.
