As the largest of the Greek Dodecanese islands, one of the most alluring features of Rhodes is its stunning coast which begs to be explored during a Greek island yacht charter vacation. There are miles upon miles of idyllic golden beaches and pristine turquoise bays to enjoy and for visitors that would like to delve into the intriguing culture, this charming Grecian gem also offers plenty of architectural and historical attractions to discover.
A dream yacht charter destination to visit, Rhodes boasts of the most stunning beaches and bays, and none are more spectacular than the ones found in Lindos. With the wondrous Acropolis towering above the breathtaking cobalt blue sea, the setting is utterly sublime.
In the picture-perfect village of Líndos, winding narrow cobbles streets are lined with pretty sugar cube whitewashed homes, well-preserved medieval captains’ residences dating back to the 16th century and quaint shops and restaurants. In the center of town, the Virgin Mary of Líndos church and its 15th century frescoes are worthy of a visit.
Known as the Island of Knights, Rhodes has retained a remarkable medieval influence even in present day and its ancient walled city has earned a spot on the list of UNESCO Word Heritage Sites. Attractions not to miss in the Old Town include the Fortress of St. Nicolas which sits at the entrance of the harbor and the Palace of the Grand Masters, a massive fortress built by the Knights of St. John in the 14th century.
