Cheap holidays to Faliraki are easy to find with TravelSupermarket. Read on to find out if this fun resort is for you…
If you know anything about the beautiful Greek island of Rhodes, you will surely have heard about Faliraki with its reputation for hot party nights and even hotter days in the sunshine. And for once, you can believe the hype: this hedonistic hotspot is packed with nightclubs and bars; party-loving visitors often don’t call it a night until the arrival of dawn.
Those booking Faliraki holidays are usually looking for wild dancefloors, lively boat parties and all-night excitement on the neon-lit strip…
However, Faliraki also attracts family visitors, especially those looking for a wide, sandy beach with clean, shallow waters in which the children can splash and paddle all day. There are a number of excellent family hotels in Faliraki. And with one of the island’s best water parks on the doorstep, there are facilities for all ages in this fun-filled resort.
Quieter hotels, including those with a strong family focus, are mostly located on the outskirts of the resort, where evenings are a little more hushed. Close to the centre of town, which sees a huge influx of visitors on balmy nights in July and August, are many self-catering studio and apartment blocks, with some hotels offering stays on a bed-and-breakfast or half-board basis. Stay close to town and you are likely to find a lively scene around the swimming pool, with some hotels recruiting DJs to spin tunes at the water’s edge.
Booking a holiday to this party paradise is a doddle: simply use the search tool on TravelSupermarket to compare a fantastic range of Faliraki holiday deals and then pick the package that suits you. We can also show you low-cost deals on car hire in Faliraki, as well as other extras such as that all-important travel insurance.

Those with young children and anyone mostly interested in sightseeing might prefer the milder temperatures outside of July and August, when bargain holidays to Faliraki are even easier to find.
