How to explore the island of Rhodes with kids in tow

Now, exploring cool new places like the Islands of Greece is something that most of us would love to do. However, when we have kids, the hassle involved can make us think twice about this. After all traipsing around sites in the hot Grecian sun can be enough to exhaust anyone, let alone the little ones. Luckily, if you check out the advice and recommendations below, you can learn how to explore Rhodes in the right way, both for you and the kids.

Getting around

Firstly, as Rhodes is a relatively small island, it's a good idea to hire a car. Luckily, this is easy to do, and you can do this by contacting companies like rent a car Afantou, where you will be able to select the size of the vehicle you want as well as where you would like to pick it up and drop it off. What this means is that you can collect your hire car straight from Rhodes airport as you arrive, which makes getting around and to your hotel and keeping the kids comfortable much easier.

Water parks

Of course, once you have a car hired, you no longer need to rely on buses or taxis. This is great because it allows you to explore the island at your pleasure and at your own pace.

Although because of the heat it may be wise to make the first stop the water park in Faliraki. There you will find a lazy river, a wave machine and even some super scary slide for the grown-ups to brave. Of course, if you'd rather just relax by the side of the poll with a good book and drink after your flight, while the kids enjoy the activity, this is entirely doable as well.

The best beaches

Another great thing about having a having a car at your disposal is that you aren't limited to just the beach that is closest to your accommodation. This is fantastic because there are plenty of beautiful beaches in Rhodes and sometimes the best ones that the locals like to keep a little more secret are further out from the towns.

In particular, you will want to make a trip to Ladiko Beach which is small with fine sand. There is also a bar close by for topping up with refreshments, making it a great place to hang out.

Alternatively, why not make a visit to beautiful Lindos? The sea there is as warm as a bath and shallow too, making it great for paddling with the kids. You have the added bonus of looking out across the traditional white village and the Acropolis here as well.

Other places of interest

Lastly, while visiting Rhodes, you won't want to miss the many other exciting sites that are there. In particular, a trip to the picturesque and richly historical Rhodes town is a must.

Expect open-air restaurants and bars, plenty of shops and lots of cultures to absorb. Including such places as the site of the Colossus of Rhodes and the Archaeological Museum. A place that the kids are likely to enjoy as well.
