About Rhodes

Rhodes is the largest island Dodecanese islands and the second largest Greek island. Rhodes is situated in the Eastern Aegean Sea, 11 miles to the west of Turkey, and enjoys an average of 320 days of blissful sunshine a year. Rhodes has beautiful and diversified natural environment. Rhodes Island is the most traveled of the 12 Dodecanese islands, enticing tourists with its gorgeous land, long, beautiful beaches and fascinating history.

The island of Rhodes was an important economic center in the ancient world and was home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - the Colossus of Rhodes, a huge statue that that stood over two thousand years ago at the entrance to the harbour and was destroyed by an earthquake in 237 BC.

The capital city, Rhodes Town, is situated at the northern tip of the island. Rhodes Town has a rich history and many places of interest, including the remnants of the 14th century occupation by the Knights of St John. In 1988 the Medieval Town of Rhodes was designated as a World Heritage City.

About Nisyros

Surrounded in Greek mythology, Paloi and the island of Nisyros itself are perfect places for ancient history enthusiasts. Paloi was said to be built on the ruins of an ancient city linked to therapeutic Roman baths that were there thousands of years ago. It is also legend that the island was created after Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, impaled a Titan, Polyvotis, with his trident and, where the force was so strong, apparently split the island of Kos into two; Kos and Nisyros.

The island itself is idyllic, peaceful and very laidback, with superb beaches that are perfect for snorkelling and windsurfing, two very popular sports in the Cycladean region. In the capital, Mandraki, you can enjoy the friendly night-time atmosphere that attracts so many people to the island every year. An attraction is the only active volcano in the Greek islands - the crater of which you can walk into and view the steaming vents close up!

    Trip to Nisyros
    • Having not travelled on large Greek island ferries for a number of years I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything on board. Our holiday return trip from Rhodes to Nisyros was very reasonably priced and worked out much cheaper than any of the comparable resort excursion boats. My only quibble would be the late night timing of departures from Rhodes, but I would be very happy to use this service again. It remains a great way to get about and see the islands.
