We stayed in Ialissos. If I were on my honeymoon or single, I would choose another island (or perhaps I would choose another part of Rhodes), but for a family with small children, or a wind/kite surfer, or people who don't want to be in a total party spot, Ialissos works just fine.
Upon arrival in Marmaris, Turkey (one hour by Hydrofoil) there is a short drive through the harbour and bazaar area to visit a local carpet shop to learn how carpets are made. Here the guests are free to wander around the many boutiques to shop and enjoy an authentic Turkish lunch (not included). Turkey has many products at excellent prices and among the best purchases are their leather goods, music (DVD's and compact discs), clothes and carpets. (Most currencies are accepted).
