Our guide book claimed that Lindos is 'one of the most beautiful places in the whole Mediterranean'. That it certainly isn't. Even if you managed to go at a time when it wasn't overrun by coach parties and avoided the streets that are lined with inter-changeable 'souvenir' shops, selling mass-produced tat from the Far East, and suppressed whatever doubts you may have about the ethics of donkey 'taxis'...it would still be just pleasant, rather than amazing. As it is, you may well want to get away from the hustle and hassle. So we have two suggestions:
1) Go down the hill from the main village to the the bay, below the Acropolis. At the far end, there's a small group of beachfront tavernas, which make a very agreeable place to have lunch. Further round is a pretty decent looking larger beach, also with a couple of tavernas.
2) Take the walk around the far side of the bay to the Tomb of Kleoboulos, on the headland opposite the village. The path, which is signposted, starts by the entrance to the free (!) field car park next to the road down to the main beach. The tomb itself is, frankly, rubbish - looking more like a WWII gun emplacement and, apparently, of dubious authenticity. But the walk (about 90 minutes there and back) is peaceful and beautiful, with stunning views in all directions. Certainly the best way to see Lindos.
