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

Glyfada Beach

Your mobile phone won't work here, the large pebbles are covered in seaweed thrown up by the constant winds, the rocks make it hard to get down into the green water - but this does not deter the few hardy souls - most of them foreigners - with a taste for exploration. One of the least known beaches in north-western Rhodes. The many pine trees give the water its deep green colour, but the constant winds stir up the water and make it less clear. To get here, follow the sign as you come up towards Rhodes from Monolithos just after the village of Siana (6km - asphalt road). The beach has two small tavernas and a card-operated telephone. (72 km from Rhodes town)
