Travel Tips for Lardos
Glystra is a beautiful little beach with fine sand and just behind are some sand dunes and shady trees. Wish we had time to spend on this beach but there were so many others and we only had a week. I'd say it was better and mnore peaceful than Lardos Beach - although about a 40 minute road walk from our hotel base - situated just before the Lindian Villlage hotel complex.
This view was taken from the road just above - umbrellas and beds for hire and there is food available too.
Lachania is a tiny artisitc village - up and coming for homes which have been lovingly restored with their blue doors and white-washed walls and soon for rent - a lot of property development is now occuring we noticed in May 2006.
This village is tucked away amidst green countryside off the main coastal road running the length of Rhodes. The tiny square at eh centre of the village is occupied by a church (under restoration) a small taverna and two fountains - one with an ottoman inscription. All of this is dwarfed by a huge plane tree - so difficult to do it justice with a picture. Plus the rain had just started to fall - the beginnign of a huge deluge we had that night.
