Walking trails & public transport?

We are considering a late summer holiday in Rhodes but knowing absolutely nothing about the island other than its location near Turkey and not even the location of the resorts, I stumbled across Pefkos. We spend a lot of time walking during the day and enjoy a nice meal and drink in pleasant surroundings in the evening, we don't mind a bit of a walk to the village/town. Very happy to use local transport to get around especially if we can find interesting places to go and explore. We also like to have a beach within reach.

Any help would be appreciated

During the hrs of 10/10.30 am and 15:30/16:00pm, the village is full of coach n boat tourists from Rhodes Town. Once they have gone, the village returns to normal and is a great place to be. For those who base themselves in Lindos, the easy way to avoid this is to b on the beach/around the pools on Krana or out n about walking/sightseeing elsewhere. Its not an issue and doesn't put us off Lindos.

As it happens, the end of Sept/beginning of Oct wont be manic anyway in terms of daytrippers.

The public buses are modern (more like a coach) and have luggage holds underneath.

Just bumping this up for any other potential walkers and updating on our trip. In late September we stayed in Pefkos for a week, using it as a base to walk in both directions. There are a couple of interesting walks starting at Archangelos which is easily accessible by bus, also from Kiotari to Asklipio and back which was very pleasant. We went to Lindos and explored trails up into the hills behind the town, coming to the conclusion that Rhodes has more rocks than anywhere on the planet! It was also very hot and we were glad that we had left it until the end of the day, just getting back to Lindos bus terminus as it went dark.

We stayed in Rhodes Town for the second part of our holiday. We used the book "Walking in Rhodes" but we were very disappointed with the public transport on the west of the island, it was completely useless and therefore we were unable to complete any of the chosen walks although we did a good walk starting from our hotel with great sea views which included a visit to the ruins of the Acropolis.
