Lindos, Rhodes

Lindos is a little white washed village on the island of Rhodes.

A short hop from London, Rhodes doesn’t have quite the celebrity status of say Mykonos or Santorini, but is still well worth a visit.

Here you can find the same cobbled streets, white walls draped in bougainvillea, pretty little shops, seafood, feta, and crystal clear waters for wallowing in with a glass of rosé.

Yep, much like the rest of Greece it is pretty much heaven.

We stopped off on our way to the much smaller island of Symi.

Taking our sweet time and treating ourselves to a couple of days exploring Lindos.

These winding streets were made for getting lost in.

There are little shops stuffed to bursting with goodies.

Linens, clothes, jewellery, bags, sandals…

…and other essentials.

Even the street signs are beautiful.

Less manicured than many of the other Greek islands, Rhodes feels a little more crumbly.

A little more real, a little more delightfully dishevelled.

We fell in love with the peeling doors of Lindos and their pebbled entries.

Exploring, even in the cooler morning light, is seriously hot business.

As you climb so does the mercury. Somewhere near the top of the village you’ll need to seek out shade for a breather.

We relished the ever-changing architecture, ranging from clean white boxes to golden Grecian carved stone villas.

And delighted in the dappled shade offered by the flowers creeping out of people’s gardens.

We picked up a few essentials.

And couldn’t help thinking how much nicer errands were in Greece! This sure beats a trip to Tesco in the rain.

We dipped into a couple of shops along the way.

For a couple more of those *ahem* essentials.

And then slowly meandered out of town.

Making a beeline for the sea.

^ Spot the acropolis looking out over the bay?

Built in 300 BC by people who evidently understood the value of a good view!

Rather than heading to Lindos Bay, I recommend sneaking out the other side of town and making your way down to Agios Pavlos (Saint Paul)’s Bay.

Pass the first one on the left, as you can see above it gets a little crowded, and keep going.

All the way to St Paul’s glittering blue waters and pretty white church.

Take a well earned swim after that walk!

And set yourself up at the taverna, on the water’s edge.

Here you’ll find some of the best food in town, in the prettiest location, cooled by a gentle sea breeze.

After all that tzatziki, finish off with another kind of dip.

And while away the afternoon on one of the swinging day beds.

Iced coffee and snooze highly recommended!

    Half an hour ago I just looked at photos from when I visited Lindos a
    few years ago. Now that you show again how beautiful it is, I really
    want to go to any Greek island for vacation.

  • I went to City of Rhodes last summer and absolutely loved it. A visit to Lindos was recommended, unfortunately we didn’t have time to go since the stop was part of a cruise.

    Lots of love xx

    I am absolutely in love with those sandals, but the link only goes to ones for children and their women’s section doesn’t carry them. Could you let me know the brand of the pair you wore in the photos, or could you recommend another one?
