Nice port visit from cruise ship

Written by Rodney T W
When I went up on deck of the Costa Concordia early in the morning to get a look at Rhodes, I was surprised to see the walls, turrets and castle around the city. It had a Disneyland-look I didn't expect. For a cruise

Charaki Beach

Children searching for shells among the pebbles, couples gazing out to sea from the balconies of their rented rooms, sun-burned mothers wheeling push-chairs up and down there s a definite family atmosphere to this attractive little bay. It's mainly frequented by tourists renting rooms nearby, but families of local people also come out with their umbrellas and settle themselves on the no-charge section in the centre of the beach (umbrellas and sun beds are for hire at each end).

The right-hand side of the beach has large pebbles, to the left there is sand. If you choose to swim at the far right end of the beach you'll have a fine view of the Feraklos castle, and also be closer to the famous Argo fish taverna, chosen by numerous celebrities in the past.

Along the promenade with the rented rooms there are mini-markets, cafes, a foreign press agency and also the delightful new trattoria run by Mila from Italy, who makes her own pastas and pizzas. (36 km from Rhodes town)
