The largest island of the Dodecanese, it has a population of just over 100,00. With 300 days of sunshine a year, an east coast of virtually uninterrupted sandy beaches and an overall incomparable beauty, Rhodes is the number one tourist destination of the island group. The Dodecanese capital also boasts the largest inhabited medieval town in Europe, its World Heritage-listed Old Town.

The coastline of Rhodes offers many delights. Among them, Lindos on the east coast of the island, is uniquely beautiful, with its small winding streets between medieval houses and the imposing castle perched on a steep rock summit overlooking the village.
