Where to Stay
Lindos is a pretty little village that shows you the typical way of Greek island life. Think whitewashed houses, pedestrian streets and wandering donkeys. Tucked away among the cobbled streets and alleyways you'll find lively bars and restaurants where you can dine in full view of Lindos' acropolis.
In Kolymbia you'll find quiet coves where sunbathers can go to get away from the crowds. It's halfway between Faliraki and Lindos and it's surprising that it's managed to stay a secret for so long. All the better for you as there'll be plenty of room to spread out along the Blue Flag beach. The main road, Eucalyptus Road leads away from the beach and is lined with a few cafés, bars and restaurants that stay open after dark.
Pefkos takes its name from the pine trees which line the sandy Blue Flag beach. A former fishing village, Pefkos certainly hasn't lost its authenticity - you'll find friendly locals in the bars and restaurants along the 2 main streets. Nightlife here is low-key but Rhodes Town and Lindos are close by should you want to up the pace of life.
Faliraki should need no introduction. It's famously the hangout of the 18-30 party crowd due to the throng of bars and clubs. There's more to Faliraki than meets the eye though, it comes with a spotlessly clean beach and a fantastic waterpark.
