Rhodes is one of the largest and most fertile of the Greek Islands, and because of its combination of beaches, archaeological sites and extensive medieval town, is one of the most visited. The climate is particularly good, with the weather typically sunny and mild.
The island is usually counted as one of the Dodecanese, but due to its importance for travelers is considered separately here.
Rhodes is a major tourist attraction for the seekers of sunny beaches. While many of its beaches are gravel, not sand;

The island can boast 300+ sun days in a year. Consequently, you will stumble into tourists and hotels and beaches full of deck chairs for rent, into shops and restaurants that cater to these tourists. It can be overwhelming at times.There is a good variety of beaches on Rhodes. The east side of the island has almost continuous sandy beaches with calm waters. Beaches on the west are mostly more stony. The wind mostly comes in from the west and also the sea tends to be somewhat rougher to the west so that side of the island is better suited to surfing or kite boarding.

The places of the most point of interest are:
-Rhodes Town.
-Lindos. The stunningly beautiful town beach on the bay. Very trendy, so wear your thong bikini here if you want to fit in.
-Kalithea. Just north of Faliraki, this was originally an Italian built spa. It is very pleasant spot but can be crowded also a number of separate beaches, each seemingly with their own taverna lie just south of the spa.
-Faliraki. A long sandy beach with plenty of tavernas to choose from. There is also no shortage of people to rent jet skis
from or to organise other activities. At the southern end, there is a quiter, more rocky beach but the sea there is inconveniently shallow for swimmers.
-Ladiko Beach (Anthony Quinn Bay). This is a very scenic spot. On one side of the bay is a relatively small beach.
