Rhodes is a big island, and you can’t possibly see all of it on foot. Fortunately there are many options to get around. Bus service is available to many of the key destinations, and this can actually be a pleasant experience. Modern local buses regularly depart from the City of Rhodes to nearby destinations, and suburban buses run throughout the day to the various towns and villages.

Trip Advisor Information for travelling around the island  rodostraffic

If you’re heading down the coast there are excursion boats that go from Mandraki to Faliraki and Lindos every day; the red Sea-Shuttle operated by Faliraki Sea Lines runs between Mandraki and Faliraki / Water Park throughout the day, takes just 25 minutes and is quite a cheap and enjoyable alternative to road transportation. There are also some boat trips without excursion that go from Rhodes to Lindos. You can go to Lindos and back or to do the night trip round the Old Town Walls by Doukissa Boat - the traditional wooden boat (the pick-up locations are: Mandraki port, Kallithea, Faliraki beach, Faliraki port). Many small fishing boats are also for hire. This is another pleasant way to get around, but it can be a bit on the slow side for those with a fast-paced schedule.
