Just some of the things to do during your visit:
- Stargaze at the Hipparchos Observatory and Astronomy Café- maybe the most impressive views on the island- and that’s saying something! Greece is the home of astronomy- follow in the footsteps of the ancients like Hipparchos & fall in love with the night sky at this observatory. The perfect ‘different’ holiday experience, and the attached café has built up something of a cult following- a chance to grab a cocktail and a homemade snack before taking a turn on the space telescope. Ensure you book your place in the observatory to get the most out of your visit- a truly memorable evening among the stars.
- Take in the stunning sight of Anthony Quinn Bay. Named after the Zorba the Greek star, who bought the beach during filming The Guns of Naverone, this beach is undoubtedly among the best beaches on Rhodes- which while it is a must-see, makes it tremendously popular at peak season- so be warned! Despite the popularity, the stunning surroundings are a wonderful setting for any holiday and there’s unmatched underwater wildlife for those interested in SCUBA diving and snorkelling. Even the cliffs surrounding the bay are a great chance to get a beautiful view of this truly special Rhodes landscape. A beautifully sandy beach set among patches of rocks means you can get a sense of privacy even at busier times, while the pine trees growing along the surrounding ridge make for a lovely shaded walk at any time.
- Tour the Municipal Art Gallery of Rhodes- some of the island’s more recent heritage can be viewed here- with a wide range of 19thand 20th century Greek art on display. A compact and easy going gallery in the old town, the relatively small size and low entry fee make this one of many popular stop-offs during cultural days out in this ancient city. Take a few hours to enjoy this varied and lively timeline of Greek art, set inside a distinctive gallery building.
