Rhodes: Family Holiday

(Ro-dos in Greek)

The Greek culture is very family orientated and the island of Rhodes is particularly welcoming towards children. With its extensive beaches, sunny climate and wealth of activities, family holidays in Rhodes are highly recommended. Some of the island's resorts offer daytime activities for kids to allow parents to relax while the major beaches have plenty of water sports to keep older children entertained. Faliraki's main beach is fine for kids as the water is safe and shallow, however some people might consider the resort too noisy and chaotic for children.

Faliraki Water Park is another great spot for those enjoying Rhodes family holidays with its vast complex of pools, giant jacuzzi and slides. The resort of Faliraki also has a fun fair and go-kart track which are both great for keeping teenagers entertained. Also recommended for those with youngsters is the fascinating Rhodes Aqaurium which is part of the part of the island's Hydrobiological Station. Those on family holidays in Rhodes are advised to avoid Faliraki after 11pm to avoid the large groups of often drunk and sometime aggressive young people spilling put of clubs and bars.
