RHODES GUIDE - INTRODUCTION

Introduction Rhodes Town The East Coast Lindos The West Coast
Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands with an area of 1,400 square kilometres and is situated in the south-eastern corner of the sparkling Aegean Sea. Dodecanese means 12 islands but in fact there are nearly 200 although many are uninhabited. Rhodes has a thriving economy based mainly, of course, on tourism and has excellent transportation links with the other smaller Dodecanese Islands including Symi, Karpathos, Kassos, Halki, Kos, Kalimnos, Leros and Patmos. In addition it is a short 40 minute flight from Athens during which views of other islands including the spectacular crescent shaped volcanic crater that is Santorini can be enjoyed.

The airport, which presently has a brand new terminal under construction, is situated on the northwest coast around a 15 minute drive from the capital, Rhodes Town, and, thanks to the recently opened connecting road, Lindos can be reached in 40 minutes.

From April to October the airport is served by countless charter flights from the U.K., Italy, Germany, Holland & Scandinavia whilst in the winter months EasyJet, British Airways & Olympic Airways fly to the new state of the art Athens airport daily with frequent connections to Rhodes. For the canny traveller winter flights with EasyJet from Luton or Gatwick can be as low as 11.99 each way plus taxes !!
