Next to our list of handpicked places below, our hotel team will be happy to provide you with more insider tips depending on what you are looking for.



Ialysos Coast

The usually windward north-western coast of the island stretches out in long, pebbled beaches, ebbed by the inky waters of the Aegean. After a thrilling afternoon catching waves and kite-surfing or windsurfing, settle onto the beach and gaze at mesmerizing sunsets with sand between your toes and salt in your hair.

Anthony Quinn Bay

It makes all the tourist guides, but for good reason. The sheltered Anthony Quinn Bay is an enduringly delicious mix of deep emerald blues, rocky shores and lush green vegetation. And thanks to a particularly beautiful underwater landscape, there’s also some of the best snorkeling on the island. 

Ladiko Beach

Located just 2km from Faliraki village, this picturesque cove has fine white sand and a small stretch of beach with sunbeds and one or two cafes. Just over the rocky foreshore, you’ll find a few secluded little spots to swim and sunbake in solitude.  



Ta Petaladika (Rhodes Old Town)

Medieval but always vibrant, the old town of Rhodes is a heady mix of tucked-away restaurants, hip and fun drinking dens and bars open until the early hours. Pitched on a lively alley, Ta Petaladika is a perennially popular place for locals and travellers to feast on seasonally-led dishes with ingredients plucked from its surrounding shores. Indulge in a lavish seafood plate or follow the lead of the locals with a delicious selection of “mezedes” or small sharing plates.

Taverna Yiarenis (Apollona Village)

Sitting at the foot of the green Profitis Ilias mountain, the village of Apollona is an intriguing spot to while a few hours. Make a beeline for Taverna Yiarenis and indulge in comforting, homespun dishes with authentic flavours, whether you perch in the traditional dining area or grab a table on its shady terrace beneath a wild and wonderful canopy of green, fertile vines.

Paranga (Apollona Village)

The lively rural village of Apollona acquired its name from the Temple of God Apollo, and it’s here you’ll find Paranga – a masterful cooking shack that draws locals and travellers from far and wide. Crafted from stone and wood, with interiors incorporating painted dishes and touches of Rhodian tradition, Paranga takes its cues from the earthy natural surroundings with a menu focusing on seasonality and food that’s good for the soul.

Santa Marina (Rhodes Town)

Nudging the outskirts of Rhodes Town and overlooking a small curve of sand with a scattering of craggy rocks is this boho-chic beachfront bar & restaurant. Interiors are serene and stripped back with plenty of wood and bamboo: hover over your sunbed and order a cocktail or three, take your pick from excellent small plates inspired by Greek and Mediterranean flavours, and gaze at the open kitchen, whether you arrive under bright blue skies or linger on warm moonlit nights.
