You will enjoy swimming at the more than 5-kilometers long sandy beach in front of the resort.

Faliraki is one of the favorite destinations of the fans of “hard” nightlife and of extreme daily activities and sea sports. It is the paradise of the young people who look for amusement and fan, from intense night life, to bungee jumping and other extreme activities. You will also find any kind of stores, from super markets and bakeries, to restaurants, taverns, cafés and pastry shops, as well as several kiosks, department stores and souvenir stores. Due to the vicinity to the town of Rhodes, the abundance of lodgings and the good organization in all aspects, the resort attracts crowds of peoples at the beach.

If you are tired of the noise and crowds and feel like wandering around, you may drive to the nearby inland village of Kalythies, situated at a distance of 2 kilometers at the West. Kalythies is a beautiful and scenic traditional village, where you may enjoy a really nice meal in one of the traditional taverns.

The area is good for sight seeing. You may visit the Erimokastro (“the deserted castle”) at a nearby hill, where you will see the ruins of the Mycenaean settlement, the acropolis of Sarantapihos, as well as several small churches with nice frescoes. One of these is the church dedicated to Prophet Amosh. According to the legend, the Prophet Amosh, had once fought with Prophet Elias. The latter, very angry, threw to Amosh a huge rock. Amosh pushed back the rock with his fist and opened a hole throughout the rock. Ever since, following the local tradition, every child who wished to be taller had to pass from this hole!
