The island of Rhodes in Greece has long been a popular holiday hotspot for those looking for an affordable, fun-filled getaway in glorious Greek sunshine. Faliraki holidays are among the liveliest you can have on the island, making them fantastic for families, couples and groups who like to be in the heart of the holiday action.
The long Blue Flag beach is one of the biggest draws of holidays in Faliraki. Sunloungers, parasols and gently shelving sands make it a fantastic playground for the youngest holidaymakers, and watersports galore keep active types happy. There's even a beachfront bungee jump for the very brave! Kathara Bay beach is a good backup plan for those who like their beaches a little quieter, offering a golden sand cove for secluded sunbathing.
Faliraki is famed for its nightlife, with fantastic nights out to be had. However, with the bulk of the action on Bar Street and Club Street, the after-dark revelry is easy to avoid if neon nights aren't your scene.
For a complete change of pace on holidays in Faliraki, Rhodes Town is a mere 20 minute taxi ride away. Here you'll find a gorgeous walled Old Town where you can wander cobbled streets, stopping at traditional tavernas, shops and sights as you go. Spot Gothic churches, Venetian-style houses and The Street of the Knights, which leads up to the imposing Grand Master's Palace.
As another of Rhodes' popular destinations, Lindos is worth the trip from Faliraki if you fancy seeing both sides of the island. Lindos has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and it's easy to see why. Preserving a Greek village feel, this resort is full of white-washed houses contrasting against the turquoise waters of the Aegean. A boat trip to Lindos makes a fabulously relaxed excursion, and is an easy way to make the most of your Rhodes holiday.
Faliraki Water Park
One for the families now, Faliraki Water Park is the place to have a splashing good time! As expected, slides, flumes and lazy rivers can be found, with the exciting 'Spiral Slide of Darkness' offering thrills for the dare-devil visitors!
Hit the Bars
If you love a good party then Faliraki will not disappoint. Famed for its nightlife, you'll find a gauntlet of bars on Bar Street, and big name club nights such as Hed Kandi on Club Street. Those who like their holiday nights to be loud and large will enjoy finding their favourite holiday haunt among the many to choose from on Faliraki package holidays.
Try Traditional Greek Cuisine
Those who prefer their evening a little quieter will want to head for the bars and restaurants on the beach front, where you can pull up a chair in a traditional taverna and try some authentic Greek cuisine. Of course, you'll find plenty of other types of food in Faliraki too, including English favourites, but, when in Greece, it would be a shame not to give the moussaka and the meze a try.
Shop in Faliraki Square
If shopping is one of your favourite holiday pastimes, Faliraki Square is the place to head. Leather is an especially good buy here if you want to invest in a long-lasting souvenir. You'll also find jewellery, clothes and even beach inflatables, it's a real hotchpotch of a shopping centre and the place to find whatever it is you're in the market for!
Holidays in Faliraki have fun at their heart, with lively beach and night scenes to enjoy. Kids will love the funfair and waterpark, and adults will appreciate the fantastic Blue Flag beach and abundance of bars and restaurants. However, there are quieter spots for those who are seeking a bit of relaxation, such as Kathara Bay and nearby Rhodes Town.
The ultimate Faliraki quiet spot, Afandou is a neighbouring resort just 5km along the coast. As one of the oldest and largest villages in Rhodes, it's a must-see for those wanting to get a taste of the Island's traditional Greek charm. The beach here is a real hidden gem, seeping into sparkling clear waters. You should also take the opportunity to get photos of the intricately decorated Our Lady Katholiki Church, and sample some traditional village cuisine. It's easy to find cheap Faliraki holidays at Direct Holidays. This friendly Rhodes base is perfectly placed to offer you a fun family holiday, within striking distance of authentic examples of Greek island life.
