Prasonisi Rhodes is the Greek word for “green island”. Prasonisi Rhodes during summer time, and when water levels are low enough, this island is a peninsula attached to Rhodes. Prasonisi…
According to Greek Mythology, Rhodes Island rose out of the sea, as a gift of the Sun God Helios, who clothed it with light, giving rise to its title of “Island of the Sun”.
Rhodes is the largest of a group of islands known collectivity as the Dodecnese (twelve islands), ranging from the large to the tiny and numbering over 200.
Wrapped around the shores of Turkey and Asia minor, Romans, Crusaders, Turks and Venetians have left their mark here. The visitor cannot ignore the magic of the history and mythology that has formed so much of present day Rhodes. Most likely to hypnotise the visitor is the landscape. The tranquil beaches, the sparkling and refreshing seas, the lush hillsides, and the simple pleasure of a slower pace of life make Rhodes the perfect location for relaxing and memorable holidays.

Rhodes is approximately 80 miles long and 37 miles wide making it perfect to explore coast to coast. However, being such a laid back race, the Greek local transport system can be unreliable and sometimes even non-existent even if the timetable says it does! Here is a general guide of how to get around to help you:
Buses: The cheapest and somewhat interesting form of transport.
Taxis: Blue and white, these are plentiful on the island but don’t be surprised if you end up sharing a ride with complete strangers! Always agree a price before you get in and be prepared for a fast drive- cutting bus journeys by half. Hold on!
Bicycles: Very easy to hire all over the island allowing the more energetic guest to sample the stunning scenery of the countryside, though we advise you avoid the highway.
Ferries: Travel a little further and visit neighbouring Kos or Symi, just a couple of hours away. Ferries and hydrofoils run regularly if you fancy being adventurous.
Car Hire: The best way to see Rhodes at your own pace and visit where YOU want to go is to hire a car. Take advantage of the exclusive service and special prices.
