Things to do in Rhodes Town
There are lots of things to do in Rhodes Town, and it’s a destination with something for everyone, no matter what your tastes, interests, or preferences. Whatever you’re looking for, Rhodes Town has it.
- A stand-out attraction in the Medieval walled city: the Old Town. This UNESCO-recognised World Heritage site features twin walls that encapsulate the winding cobbled streets of this historic area, as well as a selection of traditional Greek cafes and tavernas where you can stop for a coffee and relax.
- If it’s history you’re interested in, you can’t miss a visit to the Street of the Knights. A 14th century palace that once belonged to the Grand Masters. This Medieval road, which was restored in the 1930s, spans around 600m, taking you right from the old Knight’s Hospital all the way along to the Palace itself.
- For something a little different, take a stroll around the Turkish Quarter of Rhodes Town. It’s here that you can see a real blend of cultures, with the preserved remains of the old bazaars and fountains. The houses here are all designed in the classic Ottoman style.
- Mandraki Harbour is a popular spot to watch the luxury yachts and fishing boats sailing in and out. The old Colossus of Rhodes is marked by the two deer statues, Elefos and Elafina, which stand high on their plinths, guarding the entrance to the port. They are some of the most photographed sites in the town.
- Evening entertainment is a top attraction here, and there’s plenty of choice. You can choose between the Old Town’s traditional Greek tavernas, the New Town’s chic and trendy waterfront cocktail bars, or you could venture a little further out to nearby Faliraki for a more energetic night out.
Best beaches in Rhodes Town
Does Rhodes Town have a beach? It certainly does! Not only that, but the town’s location right on the coast means that, whichever direction you head in, you’re sure to find beautiful sands to relax and unwind on.
- Psaropoula Beach is the main beach in Rhodes Town, with clean white sand and pleasantly calm waters which make this a top choice for families. The beach begins at the aquarium, and extends right around the Kanaris coast. It’s well organised, with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for hire.
- The beachfront area around Psaropoula is well worth exploring if you can pull yourself away from the golden sands. There are lots of refreshment stands where you can cool off, and a huge range of restaurants and bars. It’s just a short walk to the beachfront area from the town, or you could simply hop in a taxi.
