Rhodes: Gay and Lesbian

(Ro-dos in Greek)

Most of the local community in Rhodes is religious and conservative but tolerant of tourists whatever their sexual preferences. The island is certainly not the main gay destination in Greece, so the scene is not big but gay and lesbian holidays in Rhodes can still be enjoyable. The nudist part of Faliraki beach is popular with gay men and boasts a bar where you can enjoy good food, cool drinks and a relaxed atmosphere. The only officially gay bar on the island is Berlin Bar in Rhodes town which is mostly frequented by gay men but more recently women too. As Rhodes is mainly a tourist destination, most venues and hotels are very friendly to all foreign visitors, regardless of origin or preferences.
