Boasting a magnificent sandy beach where watersports are plentiful. Faliraki is a busy and lively resort just nine miles from lovely Rhodes Town.


Boasting a magnificent five kilometre stretch of sandy beach where watersports are plentiful, Faliraki is a busy and lively resort that's only nine miles from Rhodes Town and is situated on the north east coast of the island. Holidays to Faliraki are renowned for a bustling nightlife, with many bars, restaurants, snack bars, shops and nightclubs, so this lively resort offers plenty to do, on and off, the beach and is perfectly tailor-made for the young and lively. Get your dancing shoes on and glam up for a night out in Faliraki and join in all the fun of the party, starting off on the aptly named Bar Street and ending the evening on Club Street. For quieter evenings, there are bars on the outskirts of town where you can chill out with friends and family and save your energy for the beach the next day. 

Families too will love Faliraki holidays. Blessed with Blue Flag beaches, pristine in their cleanliness as well having a waterpark nearby, this is a great destination for families of all ages to enjoy. Explore the long stretch of golden sand beach that gently slopes down into the Agean Sea and try your skills at a few watersports; with everything from a spot of gentle snorkelling and pedalos to jet-skiing and parasailing available to you. If you're seeking a quieter spot on the beach, then head up past the harbour and you'll find Kathara Bay, a sand-and-shingle beach where you can relax and soak up the gorgeous Mediterranean sun. Or lovely Lido Beach which is also very quiet and more scenic than the main beach.

Golf enthusiasts will be happy to know that an 18 hole golf course can be found at the nearby resort of Afandou just three miles from Faliraki. Swap the beach for the greens for a while and enjoy the scenic golf course.

Hire a car and drive to medieval Rhodes Town for the day. Or you can jump in a water taxi if you don’t fancy the 20-minute road trip. Holidays to Faliraki and the island of Rhodes wouldn’t be complete without seeing this beautiful town. Wander the cobbled streets and stop by at the 14-century Palace of the Grand Masters, which was built as a holiday home for Mussolini during the summer months.

Be sure to try out the harbour side restaurants and get your fill of tempting Greek dishes. With plenty of International choices to be had, as well as the more traditional choices. Take your time enjoying long and leisurely lunches and dinners of meze and typically Greek cuisine like Moussaka, grilled and tender lamb skewers, fragrant oregano and delicious Greek salads.
