Situated on the island of Rhodes in the Dodecanese group of islands in Greece, Lindos is not only a popular town, but also a famous archaeological site, located on the east coast of the island. The town offers fine sandy beaches and is a well-known tourist spot. Lindos sits on a large bay, facing the small resort and fishing village of Haraki, and there are several holiday villas in Lindos on offer to visitors.
What makes Lindos an interesting archaeological site is the magnificent acropolis which looms over the town, a site used by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans to protect and secure the town. The views from the acropolis of the surrounding coastline are spectacular. Many other fascinating historic ruins of interest are dotted around the town.
The cuisine on offer in Lindos is typical of the island of Rhodes, including dishes made with the fresh and locally-produced produce.
With the typical Mediterranean climate on Rhodes Island, Lindos experiences hot summer months with most of the rain falling in the mild to chilly winters. Probably the best time to enjoy Lindos villas, with all the necessary facilities available, is during the warm to hot spring, summer and autumn months.
