Full description

Set off on a guided hiking tour and discover a wild and scenic bay near the village of Monolithos. Then, explore the remains of Monolithos Castle and watch the sun set over the Aegean Sea.

Depart from the characteristic village of Monolithos before descending into a little red sand bay located between tall cliffs. This wild bay, accessible only by foot, will stun you with its natural beauty.

Crystal-clear waters and a sea breeze make this the ideal spot for a brief stop before climbing up to the castle, which is situated on a rock that emerges from the green valley.

Monolithos Castle, built on the 236m high monolith that gives it its name, has never been conquered. All that remains today is a portion of the outer fortifications and two 15th-century chapels with views of Akramitis Mountain, Halki Island, and the vast Aegean Sea.

We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Manuela was very welcoming, paid attention to everyone, told us something about nature and Rhodes and answered questions. There was a beautiful beach and goats to see up close. The atmosphere at sunset was designed very nicely. We would do the tour again. Thank you Manuela!

Superleuke ervaring! Heel mooie en beetje uitdagende wandeling in de prachtige natuur van Rhodos. Manuela heeft ons perfect begeleid en wist ook heel wat te vertellen over het eiland en de natuur. Halverwege de tocht kom je op een prachtig verlaten strand terecht waar je anders niet voorbij komt en waar je even kan uitrusten of een zwemmeke kan placeren. Aanrader!

A beautiful undemanding walk among the ruins of the castle of Monolithos. The atmosphere was very romantic, the sunset was spectacular and there was a crazy view! Real gem were the snacks offered by our guide Elisa: feta cheese, Greek olives, Greek bread and Retsina! An experience to try absolutely!
