Holidays in Lindos, one of the most charming and traditional resorts on the islands of Rhodes, are ideal for visitors of all kinds…
The splendour of Lindos is undeniable: pines and palms dot the hill onto which sugar-cube buildings have been sprinkled between the swathes of turquoise water below and the cream-coloured stone of the acropolis. It’s a place where donkeys clip-clop along jasmine-scented backstreets, where tempting cafes lure people into cool corners, and where unforgettable holiday memories are made. However, Lindos is also steep in places, so those with mobility issues (including families needing pushchairs) might struggle with the many village steps.
There are a number of sensational beaches in the bays below the village; it should not take more than 10 minutes to walk from your hotel and feel warm sand between your toes. The main beach is a long stretch with shallow seas, while Pallas is smaller but equally well equipped with cafes and water sports. St Paul’s Bay is on the other side of Lindos and offers a spectacular, sandy-pebbly beach.
Lindos has much to offer to those interested in Greek tradition and customs, though visitors can also enjoy lively nights of music and dance at bars and even a couple of nightclubs.
This terrific mix of attractions makes package holidays to Lindos a real draw for couples, families and groups.
Hotels here mostly offer accommodation on a self-catering basis, so there are plenty of shops within Lindos where you can buy kitchen essentials. But with mouth-watering, and good value, menus greeting you at every turn in Lindos, you need not worry too much about cooking unless you prefer to make your own food.

Will your holiday to Lindos coincide with any of these top events?
Medieval Rose Festival; May/June: Journey to Rhodes Old Town for this event. It takes an hour by road, but on arrival you will be transported back in time to the medieval age, when knights protected the island. It is worth the trip simply to explore this historic part of the island, but the games, market stalls and street theatre make it all the more enchanting.
Lindos Music Week; June: The well-loved Rhodes Rock festival may have departed for the shores of Spain, but soft rock tunes can still be heard during Lindos Music Week, which continues to grow in both stature and popularity.
Supermoon; dates vary: The biggest full moon of the year is a big deal in Lindos. The acropolis usually opens for late-night moonlit viewings, while people can often be found taking a dip to view the moon from the sea.
Relaxing is high on the agenda during Lindos holidays, although there is much to do if you can find the energy…
Kids and teens: The beaches of Lindos are perfect for family days out by the sea. The main beach shelves gently towards shallow waters and is perfect for young paddlers. And while parents of babies and toddlers might find the many steps of Lindos too much to cope with, older children love to run about in this maze-like village.
Grown-up families: Take the easy route atop a donkey or make your ascent on foot to the Acropolis of Lindos. There is a small entrance fee of around six euros. But the views from the top are something to behold and there is lots to learn about the history of the village.
Free and cheap: Lindos has a number of impressive churches. Access to some of these churches is granted only to tour groups so join one of the weekly tours for just a couple of euros to enjoy a host of new views of the village.
