Village of Lindos, Lindos

(6,500+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
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.

  • Visit by boat with GEM for € 41 per person at the departure of Rhodes-city. Beautiful typical white village between the sea and the Acropolis. What happiness to roam its alleys. The facades of the houses are very beautiful, beautiful Bay.

  • Great cafe, nice breeze and chilly music. We had the vegetarian baggute and the waitress was careful and let us know what had cheese or egg in it just in case. The guacamole is highly recommended!
  • Very nice little café with green roof. The carrot cake can be recommended. Good but not daily fresh Baklava.
