rhodes, kos or crete

by RachelChambers

My partner and I want a week in the sun, fancy the Greek Islands, either Rhodes, Kos or Crete. We don't want loads of kids drinking, puking and dancing all night, but we do want some nightlife, and we want a beach and lots of interesting ancient ruins to look at during the day - which is best? - Rhodes, Crete or Kos? Any info or hints and tips on any of these islands will be greatley appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Rachel


I love Rhodes Island - we go either late May or early October as the weather is better for going around sightseeing - and is still warm enough for a sunbathe -- we usually stay in the Mitsis chain of hotels - there are 3 in rhodes town just seconds away from the seafront and within walking distance of the Old Town area -- which is fantastic - you could lose yourself in there for a few days and not see everything

Also I love Kolymbia which is a few miles away from Faliraki in distance but millions of miles away from the same sort of young crowd that heads there - there is not a lot in Kolymbia ( few shops and bars & hotels ) but it is very very peaceful -- if you intend driving whislt there this would be an ideal quiet base as you can access nost of the island easily
if however you don't drive abroad ( like us ) Rhodes TOwn will be your better option as you can get to the sights and other places easily on public transport ( although this is better in the high season )

never been to kos or crete although my mate loves crete and has a home on the island

enjoy where ever you end up

Hi,
I have been to all three islands, I liked Crete but Rhodes being smaller is easy to get around.
The last time I was in Rhodes we stayed in Afandou very close to Faliraki which is a quite resort with some good restaurants and the beach is massif but chingles also a working village.
I have stayed twice in Faliraki which as some quite parts and also a great beach sandy.
Rhodes Town is a jem the old town is in the castle full of shops and a few restaurants, The new town is very cosmopolitan with a few desighner shops.
The harbour front restaurants are a bit expensive more cheaper in the town.There are a lot of cruise ships comeing and going also.
Ixia and Trianda closer to Rhodes Town and the airport on the other side of the Island.

Travel Tips for Rhodes (Island)

Tourist Information

by gale.blog.pl

This is a very important spot of Rhodes. The Tourist Information office is located near Mandraki harbour, very close to the Bus Station and the Municipal Market.

I found the office extremely helpful. The staff speaks at least English and German. You can get get lots of valuable and useful infomation here, related to both the town and the island. Here you can also pick your bus schedule, city and island map etc.

The Colossus of Rhodes

by Balam

The Colossus of Rhodes was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, however, it did not bestride the harbour entrance as is commonly pictured. It's 20 tons of bronze would have sunk immediately into the sea bed. The statue of Rhodes' protector, sun-god, Helios, 32 metres (105 ft.) high, probably stood near the Palace of the Grand Masters, site of an ancient sanctuary.
Sculptor Charles of Lindos took 12 years to cast the Colossus. Extracting bronze from battle machines and tools left after Demetrius's abortive siege, he finished the work around 290BC. He commited suicide after discovering a mistake in his calculations. An assistant tried to correct it but to no avail. During an earthquake around 225BC, the Colossus cracked at the knees and crashed to the ground.
The Delphic oracle warned Rhodians not to restore the statue, and the crumpled bronze lay where it had fallen for nearly 900 years. Arab pirates shipped it to the Lebanon, selling it as scrap to Jewish merchants, who needed 90 Camels to carry it away.

Drivers holiday

by Englischer

Most responsible drivers will recognise that you cannot see and properly appreciate a country when you are driving, add to that the "wrong" side of the road and you can see the problem get worse. It is possible to see the real Rhodes by bus, you will need some determination to decipher bus timetables (which are basically a list of starting times from the first departure point, and that's all), and to appreciate that the Rhodians find it hard to understand that their fellow Europeans might simply wish to see the country, villages etc. from a bus or coach window rather than spend our cash in souvenir shops! You may get some help from the main tourist info office situated on one of the corners up the hill on Papagou which is the street running inland from the taxi station at Mandraki. Unhelpfully this office only opens Monday to Friday office hours!

shells in Rhodes

by voyageur2

At the seaside and within old city there are plenty of shops selling touristic objects. Figures and boxes made by using shells were very lovely. Vairety of shells show the richness of Aegean nature again and again. Prices are very reasonable for those valuable gifts.

Driving around Rhodes by car

by himalia11

If you want to explore the island, you'll need a car. I recommend that you rent one for at least two days! There are lots of car rentals (for cars, motorbikes or even trikes), so it's shouldn't be a problem to find one. Most cars driving around are rental cars... and lots of them are Hyundai Atos, like ours!

Streets on Rhodes are good, especially the ones at the coast and where the tourist busses drive along! However to reach some villages in the interior, you have to take a gravel street - and as we had a brandnew car we rather didn't tried this!

We were told that the Greeks don't know any stop signs or "no passing" - instead they know the head of the police. ;-) But it wasn't that terrible, driving there was okay. You have to know that Greeks like to use their horn very often (sometimes without any obvious reason) and don't be surprised if someone uses his arm as indicator... Often, the white lines on the street are not very well visible (so no wonder that it's ignored!). Direction signs are first in Greek and later shortly before the crossing they are in English, so it's not necessary to be able to read Greek letters (however it might help). Sometimes directions signs are not very clear, but we found our way!
