General Info


The island of Rhodes, shaped like a spearhead, is the largest island of the Dodecanese (a group of twelve islands in the south-eastern Aegean Sea) with approx. 115,000 inhabitants. It is 79.7 km long and 38 km wide, with a total area of approx. 1,400 km2 and a coastline of approx. 220 km.

Rhodes is at a crossroads between Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. This has given the island many different identities, cultures, architectural styles and languages over its long history.

The idyllic nature, the wonderful climate with more than 300 sunny days a year – the crystal clear waters, the lush vegetation, the rich history, folk traditions that survive to this day, a well-functioning transport network and a very impressive tourist infrastructure make Rhodes a very attractive destination for every visitor.

... the Island of the Sun

Rhodes derives its name from Rhode, the sea nymph of the island, daughter of Poseidon and Aphrodite. According to the myth, when the island of Rhodes rose out of the sea, God Helios (the Sun) took possession of it and he then became the father of seven sons by the nymph of the island, Rhode.

God Helios blessed Rhodes with endless sunlight and a wonderful mild climate, whereas the sea nymph Rhode embraced it with her beauty and grace transforming it so to a divine paradise destined to steal the heart of every human that would ever set foot on it.
