Driving in Rhodes

Driving in Rhodes might seem a daunting prospect at first. However, providing that you take appropriate care your trips will be safe and pleasurable. To give you a head start on some of the local conditions, take a look at the following guidelines.

The roads in Greece and Rhodes vary in quality and state of repair, but as a rule the single-lane roads do not have barrier separations. It is advisable therefore to take extra care and we recommend that you drive within the speed limit.

The transportation on the island is serviced by 2 major avenues know as the National Road. The East coast is serviced by Rodos-Lindos avenue followed by Lindos-Kattavia roads. On the West coast there is the Rodos-Kamiros avenue followed by Kamirou-Kattavia side road thus completing the tour of the Island. The villages are generally connected with the main avenues reducing into smaller and narrower roads.

The only dual carriageway roads - consisting of two lanes in each direction and separated by concrete barriers - are; the Rhodes-Faliraki-Lindos and the Kremasti-Pastida avenues. A major expansion programme of the Rhodes-Faliraki-Lindos avenue is currently in progress, extending the width of the roads creating more lanes. These roads will expand to the area of Kolymbia and should reduce the build up of traffic. This project should be completed by the end of 2011.

Rhodes is a mountainous island with spectacular views, but travelling on its winding roads, which seem never ending on some journeys, could cause motion sickness, especially for those travelling with small children. Therefore, it is advisable to make frequent stops and allow a little extra time to get to your destination rather than have unpleasant repercussions on your journey.
