What an incredible place. Rhodes offers almost any kind of holiday you could want. If you want peace and quiet, youíll find it on Rhodes. If you want activities and night-life, Rhodes has got it. If you want to explore history and culture, that is there too. The island is clean, the locals are very warm and friendly to tourists. English is spoken everywhere and most signs are in English too.

Faliraki Beach

Blue and white striped umbrellas stretching for whole kilometres along the sand, with barely any space between them, groups of young British tourists, sun-burned bodies stretched out on sun beds, jet-skiers showing off in the distance, giant hotels with their facades gazing out to sea. A vast beach - more than 5km long - almost infinite in its variety. At the heart of the beach community, in front of Chaplin's beach bar, things are absolutely chaotic but quieten down if you walk a bit further. The overall tone is set by the big hotels with their private beaches and some more remote spots, but never without taverns and umbrellas.

The quietest part, popular with nudist bathers, is the very southern most end. On the main road there is  a huge water park built into the rocks, amphitheatre-style. Apart from the usual rides (slides, lazy river, black hole, and children's slides) the complex has five bars, a rafting slide, a giant 140 metre slide, an aqua gym, 25 lifeguards and all sorts of other attractions for children of all ages. Scattered about the complex and along the main Rhodes-Undo's road you'll find everything you need. Boats leave for Faliraki every day from Mandraki in Rhodes town. Also, apart from the buses, there is also the municipal train, which does a tour of the town. (12 km from Rhodes town)
