From Rhodes City: Boat Day Trip to Lindos

1. From Rhodes City: Boat Day Trip to Lindos

On this tour, you will visit the stunningly beautiful village of Lindos by boat. On the way back, the boat will make stops at Anthony Quinn's Bay for photos and both Tsambika's and Lindos's emerald bays so you can relax and go for a swim. The boat departs at 8:50 AM from Mandraki port and returns at approximately 5:30 PM. Lindos is a magnificent acropolis on an imposing rock. On the top of the rock stands a centuries-old acropolis, proudly overlooking the archipelagos. The acropolis bears silent witness to Lindos’ glorious past, a major naval power of ancient times which reputedly had a population of 17,000. The view of Lindos village, with its cubic houses sprawling down the hillside under the acropolis, is one of the most photographed scenes in Greece. The whitewashed labyrinth of little alleyways was deliberately designed to confuse pirates, today this layout makes wandering around the town a real adventure. According to tradition the temple of Athena was founded by Danaus, who came to the island with his 50 daughters to escape the rage of the goddess Hera. Follow the same ancient path that the ancient Rhodians took. When you reach the acropolis you will see a 280 BC relief of a ancient Greek warship carved into the rock, an indication of the naval power of ancient Rhodes.

Amazing place to visit. I was dreading the bus journey but it was great! The bus had air conditioning and was comfortable. The journey wasnt too long from Rhodes town even though we picked up at other hotels on the way. Lindos was fabulous with so much to enjoy with the acropolis and lovely beaches. Highly recommend this trip.

A very nice kayak trip. Good safety instructions, warming-up, and three beautiful bays to visit. A good way to enjoy Rhodes from the sea.

The excursion corresponds to the description: the time for the two places is sufficient, hence "Carpe Diem!"
