A cosmopolitan seaside resort village, Faliraki is located on the northeastern coast of the Greek island of Rhodes – situated along Faliraki Bay. With 5km of sandy beach, recognized by the Foundation for Environmental Education’s prestigious Blue Flag certification standards, this tourist destination is perfect choice for anyone looking to enjoy a holiday filled with sun and sea.
Faliraki also has a vibrant city life. Home to Greece’s largest water park, a state-of-the-art bowling park, and a history park, there is no shortage of things to see within this thriving community. St Apostolos, the city’s fishing harbour, is a great stop first thing in the morning, to watch the fishing boat unload their haul.
Staying at a hotel or hostel in Faliraki also gives tourists the chance to enjoy this city’s active nightlife. Along Ermou Street, or Bar Street, as it is known by locals, visitors can stop in any number of pubs and taverns to find drink specials, live music, and excellent food. Traditional Greek cuisine is popular, but tourists can sample Chinese, Mexican, British, and Italian foods, as well.
This resort town does get busy in the summer months – July and August are particularly popular with young families. A stay at a hostel or hotel then will be exciting, but tourists are advised to book in advance to ensure accommodations. Summer activities are plentiful – watersports, hiking, biking, and boating. Even just lounging on the expansive beach, with its striped umbrellas and sparkling waters, is a fantastic way to spend the afternoon enjoying the pleasant Mediterranean climate.
A ferry is available to bring visitors to Rhodes from the Greek mainland, and taxis and buses will bring you to your local hostel or hotel. More adventurous travelers can also rent a car or a motorbike, to cruise around the island on their own.
