Top 5 Things To Do in Rhodes

  • Enjoy the sights and the sun of St. Pauls Bay, probably the most beautiful beach on the island
  • Take a walk around the historical streets and attractions of the medieval city and travel back in time in the Street of the Knights
  • Visit the Acropolis in the village of Lindos, best experienced later in the day when it is cooler and less busy

Plan Your Rhodes Visit

The best time of year to travel to Rhodes is during springtime from March until May as the weather is hot but comfortable. The typical climate in Rhodes, however, is good all year round but in winter rainfall is highest and the island partially closes down.

Look through the Deals section of our website for some great flight deals to Rhodes. The summer months of June to August are peak season and the island receives high numbers of tourists, so booking your tickets to Rhodes and your accommodation early is highly recommended. During the autumn and winter months the island is at its quietest making this the best time to search for cheap hotels in Rhodes.
