Enjoy a peaceful stroll along this pretty nature reserve. As the name implies, this green valley is home to hundreds of butterflies. Wander around waterfalls and along a river networked with wooden bridges, wherever you go beautiful butterflies flutter. Within the reserve, there is a trail to a monastery and the Museum of Natural History to explore too.
This massive, gothic castle is part of what makes the Old Town of Rhodes a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built at the highest point of the medieval Old Town, the fortress dazzles with open courtyards, towering ramparts, turrets and fortifications. The imposing citadel offers splendid views of the island, and is also home to several works of art.
These unusual beaches only reveal themselves in low tide, connecting Prasonisi Islet with the main island. This long stretch of golden sand splits the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas, affording you the chance to swim in both, though ask anyone from Rhodes and they'll tell you to windsurf on the exposed western side, and swim in the sheltered eastern side.
After a long day exploring the Old Town's cobbled streets or the Acropolis of Lindos, it's time to relax, to reinvigorate the soul with a luxury spa day. Rest your feet and enjoy a soothing massage, get rid of any toxins with a mud wrap, or take it easy in a Jacuzzi. Ideal for readying yourself for another active day.
With its multi-coloured harbour village built on the slopes of a hill, Symi Island greets visitors with picture-perfect views. An hour's ferry ride from Rhodes, Symi offers you a chance at exploring sandy beach, private coves, and some more ancient history. Make time for the Monastery of Panormitis, a must-see sight on Symi with its decorated bell tower and museums.
