Rhodes is located on the Eastern edge of the Aegean Sea and it is the largest and most popular out of the twelve Dodecanese islands. You will notice the rich cultural history that is embedded in the island and this is evident in the surrounding ancient Medieval sights that will stir your imagination with stories of knights and battles from days gone by. Expect to be amazed by impressively well-preserved fortress walls, a medieval town and a palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes!
The island is subject to higher winds on the western side, meaning that fun activities such as kite boarding and windsurfing are a great go-to in this area, whereas towards the North there are plenty of beautiful beaches perfect for relaxing on the shore.
