The island of Rhodes boasts the most extended summer of any of the Greek Islands - with a long tourist season that begins in late March and extends towards the end of November. It is consistently tops the list of the most visited Dodecanese Islands and is one of the most loved of all the Greek islands.

Rhodes is an island with a unique atmosphere, and wonderful cultural heritage. It is also home to some simply stunning beaches, archaeological attractions, friendly tavernas and eclectic night scenes in all Greece.

Rhodes sits far to the south, and therefore experiences a milder climate than the mainland and also the more northerly and the Cyclades. Therefore it is an ideal island to visit in the autumn and winter months. Rhodes Town itself is big enough that it does not shut down in the low season, meaning that the restaurants, cafes, shops and bars stay open all year round. While the sea may be slightly on the chilly side at this time of year, there are many hardy soups who do choose to take a refreshing dip.

In any case, the old city is such a truly fascinating location that it is easily possible to spend several days exploring everything it has to offer. And of course, away from the height of the traditional summer season, the resorts are all far quieter, offering a totally different perspective than that experienced during July and August.

If you want to experience Greece in the Autumn, Rhodes is definitely a location that you should consider. In the summer, although busy, the island is a delightful place to spend a couple of weeks. It does get very hot but there is often a delightfully cooling breeze coming off the azure sea, and there are plenty of shady spots where you will be able to find some respite as the temperatures soar in the middle of the day. Whenever you choose to visit though, you will be guaranteed the warmest of Greek welcomes.

If you travel outside the high season you will need to bear in mind that there will be fewer island to island ferries running - so getting from Rhodes to the Cyclades - for example Santorini - could be trickier at this time of year - with services tending to run twice weekly as opposed to every day. It is advisable to check your connections well in advance of your holiday to avoid potential disappointment.
