When we reached Rhodes, we had decided not to visit Monolithos castle. However, we decided to visit Fournoi beach (worth to visit-one of the island's greatest beaches). The castle made its appearance at the corner of the road and it was astonishing. We did not climb but watching such a castle so suddenly takes your breath away...

I drove from Rhodos town to Monolithos along the eastern side of the Island. There are a lot to see till Monolithos as well but the walkway up the Castle and the panorama from there is really the crown of the trip.

Once you have got to the top of the hill the views are spectacular - could have stayed for hours sitting on the walls with the breeze blowing and watching the goats down below. The trek up the hill is not that strenuous but it can be rather perilous climbing about the ruins as there are not many proper steps... More

We went to Monolithos castle with our friends. It was easy to find this because it's lonely rock which we saw from the road. It's also easy to get it as well. This is another place with stunning views on Rhodes island

Ancient and run down castle on top of a hill..Pleasant and very easy walk to the top of the castle... Views are exceptional..Small church within the structure... Cafe at the base of the castle was very inexpensive although it was 50 cents to use the loo....

Very close to the village of Monolithos, there are the ruins of an old castle, yet with great history, having successfully resisted 2 consequent Ottoman sieges during the 15th and 16th century P.C. The view from up there is breath-taking, mainly at sunset, which is equally charming from the nearby beach of Kalamos, on the west coast of Rhodes.

Sensible shoes are definitely required! Also be cautious as there are no railings and a sheer drop ;-) Really enjoyed exploring this small but historical site and would suggest that you add it to your list. Not suitable for young children or the infirm.
