two days in Rhodes--ideal place to stay

Hello all you expert travelers--We're a family of 4 and will have two days in Rhodes. We want to see the sights AND spend a day at the beach. Would it be better to stay in Rhodes Town and then travel to the beach or stay in a place like Lindos and then travel to the sites? We won't have a car. Thanks for your help.

Hey and welcome julia_hiker:-) You don't mention 'when' you are going..and If that's just for an ovenight, would stay within the Town/Old Town..you can always take a bus out to one of the beaches..or even visit Lindos for an afternoon/evening;-) Although the isle is not that large, it's big enough with distances to travel and involves some time on the road to move around..basing centrally in this case, would be my call;-) FWIW, the Old Town alone can keep many happy and occupied with limited time;-) Happy planning..and EnjOY!

Hi Julia,

You don't say if you have 2 full days on Rhodes as it would make a difference to what you can do. I would cetainly recommend a visit to Lindos as there is a lot to see. You can get an early bus from the terminus near the harbour and it takes about 1 hour (5 euros each way). When you get to Lindos you can get a free bus down to the village. It is worth going up to the Acropolis and you can either walk or get a Lindian Taxi (donkey) for 5 euros. It's then about 5 euros to get into the Acropolis but the views are superb. There are regular bus services back to Rhodes and there are several beaches that can be reached by taxi. Don't forget about the Old Town itself though as this is another must see but can take some time. You have the Palace of the Grand Masters (6 euros but worth it) that can take up to 2 hours, the Street of The Knights, The Clock Tower and the Mosque of Suleiman. Also the many shops and tavernas/restaurants in the Old Town. It is also worth walking around the harbour and the many boats selling sponges and shells. If you want to see the sights I think the beach may have to wait for another time.

Enjoy anyway as it's a super place.

Cheers

Dave
