Scorching hot summers
Find the latest offers on Rhodes holidays at The Co-operative Travel. Holidays to Rhodes usually involve soaking up a great deal of sun as this major Greece holiday destination has terrific, hot summers. Just off the southern coast of Turkey, Rhodes is tucked away in the eastern corner of the Mediterranean. A perennial favourite of European holidaymakers, many visitors return year after year to this sizzling isle.
Package holidays to Rhodes are suitable for everyone and widely available, although singles looking for a lively, fun-filled extravaganza should definitely head to Faliraki. As a Mediterranean party destination it was the forerunner for the big boys such as Ibiza and Ayia Napa but now it offers an additional touch of class. Managing to retain the fun element but at the same time curbing youthful excesses Faliraki has matured into a stylish, welcoming resort.
Families and couples too have a great choice of Rhodes holidays and Lindos on the east coast is a particular favourite. A shallow crescent shaped beach surrounded by hills covered in charming traditional white buildings becomes a veritable sun trap at the height of summer. Overlooked by the historic Acropolis this idyllic little corner of Greece offers a great break away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Rhodes Town also scores highly when it comes to providing great, relaxing breaks. This magnificent walled city with its narrow old town streets packed with traditional shops and in-vogue boutiques proves a celebrated summer draw. There's one lovely large shingle beach to wallow on by day and a whole town to explore at night; a perfect combination for the adventurous holidaymaker. Theres certainly enough in this town to keep even the most ardent sightseer happy; the Palace of the Grand Masters, the Jewish Quarters and Mandraki Harbour to name just a few.
Because of the scorching summer heat taking cheap holidays to Rhodes outside of traditional high season can provide amazing value. The weather is very pleasing and resorts are still in full flow making the most of the dazzling Greek summer.
