In a sheltered, southerly position around ten miles off the Turkish mainland, Rhodes enjoys just about the best climate of all the Greek Islands.
The friendly locals are used to catering for foreign visitors, and it shows in the high standards of service in the hotels and restaurants on the most cosmopolitan of Greece's top holiday islands.
Steeped in history thanks to the influences of the many invading cultures, Rhodes offers many archaeological sights well worth a visit. Rhodes Town offers you two towns for the price of one - the modern island capital has broad tree-lined avenues, excellent shopping, and great nightlife, whilst the magnificent quaint old town is a stunningly well-preserved Crusader fortress city, built by the Knights of St John, and is a Monument of International Heritage as identified by UNESCO.
There are numerous excellent sandy beaches around the coastline, most with a good choice of watersports, facilities and plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas to hire.
Right at the South tip of the island is Prassonissi beach a mecca for windsurfers, with two large sandy beaches, split by a causeway out to an island perched out to sea. Rhodes is renowned for its sunshine record and cloudless skies combined with its heritage, romantic chapels and wedding venues, it's easy to see why Rhodes is such a popular holiday and wedding destination!
