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.

This is such a beautiful place with amazing views but a few safety rails would be a good idea. There's nothing to protect you from treacherous drops - I really would not want to take children there: far too dangerous. But the views really are fantastic.

more ruin but a good photo spot, make a pile of stones balance seems to be the order of the day here they are everywhere, had to explain what it was all about to some people

This wonderful castle that hosts compelling views and a wealth of history is located on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Rhodean coastline. It is a fairly long drive to get there, but it is definitely worth a visit! To get into the castle requires an un-barriered and un-railed uphill walk that is perhaps not best suited for young children or... More

Free admission. Small climb and worth it as pretty church at top and lovely views to bay. Be careful with children as no barriers where they could fall! Free parking close by and coffee shop in shade was nice to go to afterwards
