We saw plenty in Rhodes Town over the same period! I don't usually get bitten but got caught out with about 20 bites - thankfully I don't tend to react too badly so not a real problem. These bites all occurred in the daytime and/or early evening before application of my trusty Avon Skin So Soft!!

Newbie on here, will be picking everyones brains as going to Rhodes next year, preparing well in advance! LOL Friends are getting married in Lindos, but think I'll stay in Pefkos, any tips gratefully received. In Sharm I use Avon Skin So Soft, it's woodland fresh, make sure it has cirtonella in the ingredients

Regards

Hi, the Avon SSS that you have is the right one, it has citronella in it and apparently works a treat!

Evadiva, yes, definitely the right one. I've used it for some time as my only mossie protection (used to come in a bluey green bottle but changed to the one you describe a few years ago) and never been bitten when using it.

Hi there. All our family used the Avon last year in Kos but we still got bitten to death. Don't think it helped being so close to the saltlake. In Rhodes the year before, had a few bites, but nothing too serious.
