Village of Lindos, Lindos

(4.4/5 based on 6,500+ reviews on the web)
A small town with a mix of rich history and sandy beaches, Village of Lindos was established by the Dorians about 3,000 years ago (though local legend claims the settlement was founded long before that by one of Zeus' divine sons). Although it contains an age-old acropolis, the town's main attraction remain its traditional whitewashed buildings and pedestrian-friendly backstreets. Pick up a free map at the tourist information center and take a self-guided tour through the narrow streets, lined by well-preserved medieval buildings and small taverns. Visiting beachgoers outnumber the town's tiny population in the morning, so wait to get some sand between your toes until afternoon, when tourist buses depart for the next destination. For Village of Lindos and beyond, use our Lindos tourist route planner to get the most from your Lindos vacation.

  • Great hotel for the price. Beautiful views of the city. Wifi is just ok.
  • Fantastic views of the acropolis. Close to the central street but far enough to be in a quiet neighborhood.
  • Most beautiful place on Earth.
  • Hot, but an awesome place.
  • Best place I've ever been to. No cars allowed. Donkey is the only means of transport.
