How Hot?

The average high temperature peaks at 88ºF (31ºC) in July and August, with very little chance of rain.

Out and About

Rhodes has the best sunshine record of all of the Med Islands but there is far more on offer than cloudless skies and clear blue seas, there is great shopping, romantic temple ruins and a fabulous Old Town that is bursting with atmosphere.

Once home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a huge statue known as the Colossus of Rhodes, these days most famous for its Old Town, a warren of cobbled squares, alleys, palaces, churches and mosques. The Old Town is surrounded by strong, imposing walls and a magnificent fortress that was built in the 14th century and is among the largest and most well preserved medieval settlements in Europe. There are so many museums and galleries to visit and plenty of cafes and restaurants when you need to re-energise.

The New Town has it's fair share of attractions, from Mandraki Harbour to the underground aquarium. The New Town does tend to come alive after dark with many bars, discos, nightclubs and casinos.

Lindos is the most impressive of the medieval villages outside the capital and is home to the ruins of the ancient Acropolis, the amphitheatre and Kleoboulou's tomb. With it's cobbled, winding streets and stunning bay, Lindos is certainly the most picturesque resort in Rhodes.

If you are wanting to escape the busy town or the hot, sticky beaches for the day, why not take a trip to the Valley of the Butterflies, a lush green forest haven with a river running through it which is home to thousands of Jersey Tiger Moths. Due to it's natural beauty, the valley can become very busy so it is advisable to get there early.

The perfect day out on a really hot day is a trip to the Epta Piges (Seven Springs) which is situated near the village of Kolymbia. The seven springs converge into a beautiful green lake which is surrounded by pine trees. There is a wealth of nature with rare flowers, huge dragonflies and wild peacocks, the Epta Piges really is quite a place.

There are more animals to be found at the Rhodes Ostrich Farm and Park which is certainly a day with a difference. What could be better than strolling through the countryside and spotting countless rare birds and animals. You could enjoy a camel ride or try an ostrich egg omelette, two things you certainly wouldn't do on a normal day out!

So whatever you like to do on holiday, there is lots of fun to be had in Rhodes.

Out for Lunch!

Dining in Rhodes is ideal for all taste buds. The island serves mainly International cuisine as well as Mediterranean cuisine. Most dishes are made with locally organically grown fruits, vegetables, meats and fish. The quality of food you try will depend on where you eat it. To get the best foods in the area you need to travel into the more residential areas where there are local tavernas offering fresh foods. The more touristy areas have a good range of restaurants and tavernas as well as fast food outlets.

If you want to eat like a traditional Greek then the way forward is to have mezes. These are made up of a variety of small starter like dishes and dips including taramasalata and tzatziki, all set in the middle of the table for everyone to enjoy. Saganaki cheese is a very popular dish to have in a meze along with Greek salad, Dolmades and Soutzoukakia.
