Rhodes Faliraki

General information

Located about 15 kilometers south of Rhodes Town, Faliraki was once a quiet fishing village that rarely saw visitors. Today, however, it is a busy tourist center and one of the most popular destinations in all of the Dodecanese.

The village is known for its stunning turquoise waters and beautiful coastline. Faliraki Beach is perhaps the area’s main attraction, with a 5 km-long stretch of sand and many modern facilities. It is also a popular water sporting hub, with activities such as jet-skiing and banana boat rides being offered by local watersports centers. For a different experience with a focus on natural beauty, Anthony Quinn Bay is about 4 km south of Faliraki.

    I highly disliked the town of Faliraki
    Nationality: USA

    Age: 22

    Countries visited: 10-15

    The Trip: I arrived on the island by Plane. The trip was good with no delays.

    Reasons for going to Rhodes: Discovered in Brochure/Magazine/Newspaper and I chose it for its rich history and beautiful beaches

    Idea before arriving: I was surprised (and disappointed) with English-speaking tourists there were on Rhodes. Faliraki, in particular, was swarming with loud, drunk, obnoxious tourists. However, the locals were very friendly and accommodating. The Old Town was unbelievable and spectacular--a must-see!

    Favorite things about the island/area:

    Best Beaches : Ladiko

    Best Villages : Old Rhodes Town

    Best Activity : finding a remote beach

    Best Bar/Pub/Club :

    Best Restaurant : Odyssey Restaurant on Menekleous Street, Old Town

    Negative opinion about the island: I highly disliked the town of Faliraki for its dense tourism, cheap attractions, and trashy visitors

    Recommendations for future visitors: I suggest not visiting Faliraki, or even Rhodes, if you want a quiet and peaceful vacation. If you want to party with English-speaking tourists and eat greasy breakfasts, stay in Faliraki.
