Previously inhabited by Romans, Byzantines, Turks and Italians, Lindos reflects an amazing melange of influences dating back to 3000 B.C.For nature lovers, there are spectacular ways to explore the verdant unspoilt natural beauty of the island. Take a jeep to the mountain villages of Vati and Lahania with the ancient windmills, tiled roofed houses and monasteries.

Admire a panorama of the high peaks and roam through the Valley of the Butterflies and the 7 springs. Lush green forests, meandering rives, the gentle gurgle of streams and the kaleidoscope of flora and fauna offer a unique blend of sights, sounds and experiences that will fascinate you. The stunning sandy beaches of Rhodes are a paradise escapade. Relax and soak up the sun on the long stretches of golden sand of the east coast or unveil the undiscovered rocky beaches of the west. For the more adventurous, your quest for excitement will lead you to scuba diving in the crystal clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, where you will discover a new underwater world of pretty reefs, shallow dips, deep walls and little critters.
