A haven for those hoping for peace and tranquillity from their Rhodes retreat, Lindos is found on the east coast of the island and benefits from a car-free centre that is perfect for lazy laidback escapes. Traditional charm still radiates from the preserved centre, and the ancient Acropolis looks on from the top of the hill. It’s a sociable, romantic village that is perfect for an intimate Greek break.

Great Things to Do

From the ancient Acropolis and historical centre, to the twin bays and turquoise waters, Lindos is a jewel in the Rhodes crown.

Dine on a Rooftop

Lindos is one of the prettiest villages on the island, and some of the views are absolutely breathtaking. Evenings are warm and so dining at one of the rooftop restaurants is an absolute must. Try some local Greek fare and enjoy the morsels as you look out across the stunning village and seascape vistas.

Ride a Donkey to the Acropolis

If you’re feeling up to the challenge, you can hike to the top of the hill to the Acropolis, but it’s not for the faint-hearted! Instead, ride one of the ever-faithful donkeys who will do the hard work for you. At the top, take your pick of the historical marvels, including a Roman temple, a church and an ancient fortress.

Get Lost in the Cobbled Maze

The cobbled streets of Lindos are like a maze of winding alleyways and narrow lanes that hold all manner of tavernas, cafes and shops. Enjoy a leisurely stroll around them, pick up some local wares and grab some lunch. There are free maps available, but the streets aren’t named, so you could very easily get lost, in a fun way!

Explore Under the Sea in St. Paul’s Bay

The main beach in Lindos can get overcrowded very quickly, but if you head down the road to neighbouring St. Paul’s Beach you’ll be met with more of a tranquil setting for your day on the sands. St Paul’s Bay also offers up some amazing snorkelling opportunities, so grab a snorkel and get exploring the deep blue sea!

Getting Around

Lindos is extremely walkable and blissfully traffic-free. There are buses that serve Lindos and can take you to various other resorts in Rhodes, and taxis are available in most places – some of which will stop and ask if you’d like to share with current passengers, to save you waiting for a bus. You can also ride a donkey to the Acropolis if you don’t fancy the hike, and boat trips can take you to Rhodes Town.

By Bus

There is an excellent bus network that services Lindos and connects you with many of the towns and resorts all over Greece. It’s an inexpensive way to travel, but buses are not always on time.

By Car

If you decide to hire a car to explore the rest of Rhodes, park on the outside of the village and head in on foot, because Lindos is traffic-free (other than mopeds). Driving is on the right hand side.
