Beach babies can’t get enough of beautiful Rhodes

Flights to Rhodes take about four hours, which means you and the family will be down at the beach in no time.

As the cultural capital of the Dodecanese Islands and the biggest of the pack, cosmopolitan Rhodes has a lot to brag about. For as many ancient ruins and medieval fortresses marking this island's landscape, there are waterparks, hotel complexes and Blue Flag beaches – more than 20 in all. So if you're looking for a holiday destination to impress families of all shapes and sizes, look no further.

Kolymbia is a teeny resort that keeps things on the sleepier side, though it provides families with a bevvy of massive hotels that function as their own getaways. The same goes for Pefkos in terms of atmosphere, as rest and relaxation are the primary goals here. Beaches, watersports and boat tours are the top ways to pass the time. Trianda on the other hand is a windswept resort that presents holidaymakers with a lifeguard-attended beach and slew of dining options, not to mention a side of history in its a 15th-century monastery.

Best family friendly beaches

The best family holidays in Rhodes are spent at the beach, of which this Greek island has many. Here, the shores come in every shade of gorgeous, from wind-heavy to secluded snorkel spots and Blue Flag award-winning. The beach at Trianda offers perhaps the best range of amenities, as it's filled with lifeguards and sunloungers, and offers toilets too. It's also worth noting that it's known for its windiness and watersport potential.

That's not to say other beaches on Rhodes are left in the lurch. The beaches at Pefkos are crowd favourites, especially sunbed-lined Plakia and the resort's more secluded cove, both of which offer shallow water and light waves. Kolymbia's beach is a Blue Flag award-winner for cleanliness, stretching out for a kilometre. Here, you'll find watersport rentals and access to the main road where bars and restaurants abound.

Best family activities in Rhodes

Much of the day-to-day in Rhodes is about experiencing the island's unique history and stretching out along the coast. Kolymbia ups the ante with outdoor excursions at the natural wonder Seven Springs, while Pefkos boasts glass bottom boat tours out on the high seas and to nearby resorts. Over in Trianda, you can take advantage of the breezy conditions and try out surfing or windsurfing. If getting out on the waves isn't your thing, watching can be just as fun.
