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

Kolympia Beach

As soon as you reach the end of the Eucalyptus Road (also built by the Italians) and see the beach stretching ahead with its rows of red and yellow umbrellas, you'll realise you've arrived at Kolympia.

Like neighbouring Faliraki, this is a hotel resort, but much more peaceful, without many clubs, young people and noise. It's most popular with German families. Right below the Eucalyptus Road is the main beach, while to the right and left there are hotels with their own private beaches. The fine sand and pebble beach is commercially organised, and pedaalos are available for hire. The Limanaki fish tavern is highly recommended for fresh fish right by the surf. (26 km from Rhodes town)
