Great Family Holidays in Rhodes

Today some ideas for you from Thomas Cook!

Thomas Cook - Lindos

For an unforgettable family holiday, you can’t go wrong with the Greek island of Rhodes. Its tranquil waters and sandy beaches mean the kids will love building sandcastles and cooling off in the sea, whilst you enjoy soaking up some of those rays, with your head in a good book.

One of the great challenges of a family holiday is always how to keep the kids entertained, which is why Rhodes is the perfect family holiday destination. From waterparks and aquariums, to island cruises and great snorkelling spots, there really is something for all the family – and most of it fits within a small budget too.

A popular resort for families is Lindos, which lies on the east coast of the island. Overlooked by white-washed houses, Lindos offers three sandy beaches and many tavernas from which to sit and people-watch with a refreshing beer. Lindos is also a car-free zone, making it a great destination for families with young children. As well as plenty of places for a cool drink, Lindos’ maze of alleyways boast colourful shops and boutiques, perfect for those souvenirs to remind you of your holiday in Rhodes. And if you’re not too tired by the end of the day, take a ride on a donkey to the top of the hill for some spectacular views over this pretty resort.

Another great family resort is Pefkos, a lovely village set in a beautiful bay surrounded by pine trees. There is so much to do out on the water, from glass-bottom boat trips to hiring canoes, speed boats and pedaloes, the kids will be kept entertained and will be worn out by the end of the day. Meanwhile, adults can enjoy the many bars and restaurants, and even try sea fishing! 

So if you’re looking for a fun-filled family holiday with guaranteed sunshine, then the island of Rhodes should be top of your list of destinations.
