Beautiful road from Kalavarda and Siana leads to the village of Monolithos, then on to the (free entry) castle (and then on to Fourni beach which is well worth a swimming stop). Stunning location on the mountain overlooking the sea, and good for a wander round amongst the ruins (look out for all the piled stones along the way!). Exposed... More

I recommend to stop at the serpentine road above the castle and feel the air waves, one hot and next one cooler coming from the Aegean sea just some 400 m below. At the same time during the hot weather you can smell a great scent of pine in the air. All this together with the view gives the feeling... More

Nice place, incredible view of the Aegean Sea! It worth a visit, even if it's quite far from Rhodes town. Also the bar close to the parking worth a visit, cheap prices and very good food!

This castle is the most coolest place I visited. The views are amazing and walking up the stairs made me feel like I was in LOTR! The views are amazing and it wasn't too packed so we had plenty of time to take pictures! It's must see!

Whilst on the way to the secluded beach of Foúrni my family and I decided to call at castle Monólithos for a photo opportunity, and what an opportunity that is, after a relatively small climb up the incredibly smooth and slippery stone steps (sensible shoes a must, no heels) we were rewarded with the most amazing views from this once...

This is the place to go for the views, there isn't much left of the castle to see, so only the views have interest. No information anywhere to be seen complete the place. There is a small cafe in front of the site entry and a place to stop before it for good pictures.

One of the places you must go if you rent a car, but please go with the car as there are also beautiful beaches beneath the castle that i'm not sure if bus tours go. You will love - the roads and views to the castle, will be amazed by the views from the castle and can enjoy peace, romance... More

Great view of the sea and mountains; no entrance see; we climbed with our 5 year old daughter, so good exercise (10 mins climb). Breathtaking view and quite at sunset.
