Spread the love

If you still haven’t booked your summer holiday for 2014, you might want to turn your attention to our cheap deals to Rhodes – it could be your perfect opportunity to discover a popular destination that has a lot going for it.


Rhodes is one of the Greek islands located in the eastern Aegean Sea. It’s a brilliant destination for a summer holiday for a number of reasons, including the climate, culture and location – the flight time to the island is less than four hours from the United Kingdom, which is much quicker than jetting off to the Caribbean. Rhodes is also known as the ‘entertainment island’, meaning you wouldn’t be short of things to do on your travels.


So whether you are looking for a trip for you and a few mates, your family, or an escape for you and your partner, find out what you could get up to on your visit this summer….


Party all night in Faliraki

If you fall into the group of ‘18-30 singles’, you might want to make your way to Faliraki for a couple of weeks of hedonistic excitement. This is because Faliraki is home to two strips full of bars and clubs for your enjoyment. You will find foam parties, boat parties and many other ways to let off steam; at the end of your stay you will be gutted to leave behind the daily routine of heading to bed at sunrise…


Make a splash in Rhodes

Close to Faliraki is one of the largest water parks in Europe, so this could be the perfect place for you to visit if you have kids with you. This year the Faliraki Water Park opens on the 5th May, meaning it is even accessible to those who prefer to take their holidays slightly earlier. There are rides for all ages as well as a wave pool, so it really is possible to keep everyone entertained – just remember the suntan lotion!


Sunbathe in Kiotari

Speaking of which, you will need this if you visit the resort of Kiotari – a relatively new addition to the holiday scene. It is worth getting to know though as there is a four kilometre Blue Flag beach to make the most of. Couples and families can claim an area of sand for themselves, whilst younger thrillseekers can get their adrenaline pumping with a spot of parasailing over the bay.


Try something new in Ialyssos

There is also something of a sporty vibe to be found in the resort of Ialyssos should you wish to explore it further. Mountain biking and horse riding are some of the most popular activities to enjoy here, so it could be the ideal time for you to try something new. Of course, you can still use the sea to cool down though, with scuba diving and snorkelling also on offer in this resort. Those looking to stay in shape in between all of the holiday extravagance will appreciate the fitness club which offers aerobics classes and other facilities.
