Travel to Rhodes - Greece
Lindos is situated about 50 km from the city of Rhodes, which is also the main port of the island. Always, on my travel trips, I was fascinated by small towns and villages that have retained their original form from the past.
Narrow stone streets, colorful shutters, flowers, trees and small taverns in which you can hide from the heat. Hmm, now I am almost describing the village of Lindos. Pleasant village also falls to the Greek national historic sites. The movement of vehicles through the streets of the village of Lindos is prohibited, as well as the hotels here in the village you will not find.
Lindos village even stands out for something: it is Situated on the slopes of a hill with a splendid view to tha bay and over the sea. At the top of the hill above the village stand historic Acropolis. The streets and squares are decorated with cobblestone and the buildings were built in Bizantyne and Arabic style and the style of Rhodian
Around the village of Lindos you can find three beaches. At all the beaches you can rent sun beds and parasols. In high season the beaches are very crowded.
What to do on the coast village of Lindos. Indeed, one of the more interesting thing is boat trip and tour to explore coast from the sea. In the harbor you can find a few of tour providers. On the boat trip you can see Lindos bay, villages like Vlicha, Kalathos, Harak and famous Aghati Beach. On our trip we stopped here for sunbathing for about 3 houres. It is realy nice beach with many facilities and bars.
If you travel by car and you want to find Agathi beach , just follow the sings of Haraki Beach. About 10 km or on a half way along the road you come upon the medieval castle of Feraklos.
To visit the Acropolisof Lindos with Temple of Athena from Lindos you can choose from two possible routes. The first is a nice paved path, next to it you can find many souvenir shops as well as the rest of the offer. Another path leads to cragy slopes of the hill, where access is also possible by riding on the mules.
