Rhodes is one of those islands that seems to be in a world of its own. Besides being the largest of the islands in the Dodecanese island group, it also has a rich and unique history. It has strong ties to the Medieval period of Europe and it was here that the Knights of Saint John had their headquarters. Besides the Medieval remnants, people do flock to the island for other reasons. The beaches, in particular, are considered to be some of the best that Greece has to offer. Here’s a look at Lindos Palace Beach, one of the island’s most popular spots:
Getting to Rhodes
Before you can enjoy Lindos Palace Beach, you have to first make your way to the island of Rhodes. You have several choices as to how you can do that. First of all, Rhodes is large enough to have its own airport. The airport itself is close to the main town in Rhodes. It is also possible to take a ferry, and these ferry ports regularly go into the main port on the island. From there, the beach itself is located on the island of Lindos so you can either rent a car, take a bus, or take a taxi once you arrive on the island.

One of the things that makes this beach so endearing is that it is so close to the village of Lindos. It surrounds the town along with three other beaches.
