Well worth a visit if you are on the island, easy to get to in a car. Spectacular views of the coast line on approach, there is a a good few steps up to the castle but the castle is very nice from the approach and also when you are inside. There is no fee to enter the castle

There are lots of castles in Rhodes, all worth a visit, but if you have to choose this is probably the one not to miss. The views from the top are breathtaking. While you are here be sure to check out Fourni beach ( pebbles, a little surf and windy when we visited, but clear water and thankfully no umbrellas... More

It's a nice ruin, but mostly for 1 picture of it than a whole visit. Castle is quite small and in bad shape. The view is very nice, as usual on Rhode island. But we travelled a 2 hours ride to go there... and maybe it was not Worth that much.

Great place to visit, really nice viewpoints! Don't forget to buy thyme honey! As it's a mountain, it's pretty cool even in most hot days. Take your swimming wear with you and visit nearest beach (there the roadsign near the Castle)!

Just past this Castle is a little beach. It is worth visiting it. So quiet with the most beautiful pebbles on the beach.

Again this quaint small ruins on top of a hill offer some great views across the sea to Halki and Symi. Well worth a stop off if in this area of Rhodes for the fab photo opportunities.

As with all Greeks, they're pretty nice people! I know a few myself :P I visited Monolithos Castle on my visit to Rhodes this summer! The walk up was stated as being a 10minute walk which is false. It is about 5mins in 35C and its was busy. Plenty of local business, which is good and some very nice beaches... More

Well worth a visit - beautiful remains of a grand castle. Its a pretty walk up to the top and a lively chapel sits at the top too for a quick prayer! Lots of stalls on the route up selling local produce .

You may need a car for this one but it is worth hiring one just for this visit. It is promoted as one of the most beautiful castle and chapel sites in the world and I would say it must be up there for that title. The castle and chapel are situated on a very high outcrop overlooking the sea... More

Nice, relatively calm place without crowds of tourists - I would recommend to visit if you rent a car.
