Rhodes Island offers the best beaches in the Mediterranean. Most of the beaches in Rhodes have been awarded the European Union blue flag, an environmental award for clean, crystal clear waters, which are world famous. Most of the beaches are sandy and organized with umbrellas, sun beds, water sports, cafés and tavernas. The best beaches are located at the east coast of Rhodes Island in small coves and bays. Rhodes Island offers both cosmopolitan beaches as well as quiet sandy beaches.
The beach tour combines 1 hour Rhodes city tour including the main highlights of the city plus free time at beach of your choice.
Our first stop will be in Rhodes Old town. It is the biggest inhabited medieval town in Europe and more than 6.000 people are still living inside. The Medieval Town of Rhodes is inscribed in the World Heritage Sites List of UNESCO. This list recognizes the exceptional value of a cultural site so that it may be protected for the benefit of all Humanity. We will enter the Old town early in the morning as it is closed for cars after 9.00AM. We will stop for pictures outside the most popular monument - Grand Master Palace, Knights' street and the Clock Tower.
In case there is any change in the regulations of the city or you are not able to start your tour at 8.30AM we will show you the best from outside.
From there we will drive to the new part of the town and the Mandraki port where once stood the famous Colossus of Rhodes - one of the seven wonders of the Ancient world. It was a giant statue between 30 and 33 meters. It represented the god of the sun - Helios. We will stop for pictures of the area and you will be able also to enter and see the Church of the Annunciation which is the biggest Orthodox church in the town with very beautiful handmade paintings on the walls and impressive chandeliers.
Next we will continue towards the Monthe Smith Hill and we will stop for a panoramic view of the city. From here you can see where the Mediterranean and the Aegean seas meet each other.
We will stop also at the Acropolis of Rhodes. You will be able to walk and explore the area and see the Temple of Appolo, the Ancient stadium and Amphitheatre.
Now leaving behind the city of Rhodes we can continue our tour towards the beach. You can spend the rest of the time to enjoy the white sand and swim in the sparkling blue waters at any Rhodes beach that you would like to visit.
Then we will return back to the city of Rhodes and we can leave you at any point of interest
