Those looking for a tranquil base from which to enjoy the sun, the sea and traditional island hospitality, need look no further than a Tholos holiday.

A Tholos holiday appeals to families and those looking for a quiet place to relax by the sea. It also attracts wind surfers and yachtsmen because of the ideal breezes. Tholos is also conveniently placed for exploring the fascinating capital, Rhodes Town.

When To Go To Tholos

The most popular time for a Tholos holiday is in the summer, although the season does extend from March to November when the temperature range is from twenty to thirty degrees.

Tholos - The Place

Tholos is an attractive village offering a relaxing base from which to enjoy a seaside holiday. Lying on the north-west coast of Rhodes, it benefits from an almost constant summer breeze which has a welcome tempering effect on the high season temperatures. Its long shingle beach is washed by clear blue water and it offers a range of water sports. Wind and kite surfing are very popular as the summer winds blow a constant breeze across the bay. The beach slopes gently into the sea providing safe bathing for children and weak swimmers. Refreshments are available along the waterfront.

The buildings in the old part of the village are traditional island architecture with tall shuttered windows and a splendid array of flower pots and tubs filled with spectacular array of flowers. The modern village is clean and neat with white washed dwellings and pastel doors and window frames. Visit the appealing village church, Agios Spiridonas, with its fine white bell tower. There are a number of restaurants and tavernas serving a variety of cuisine catering for most tastes.

If you tire of relaxing in this quiet resort, there are many excursions which explore the island. There are buses to Rhodes Town which is well worth visiting. The Castle of the Knights of St. John is one of the finest examples of Crusader military architecture in the world. As you step through the gates of the medieval town into the maze of narrow streets it is easy to forget that you are holidaying in the twenty-first century. Step outside the walls and you have every modern convenience and leisure activity that tourists have come to expect.

Tholos Nightlife

Tholos nightlife is as relaxed by night as it is by day reflecting the family nature of the resort. Evenings are spent strolling through the streets and along the waterfront enjoying a meal and a drink under the stars. If this is too quiet you can take a taxi to Rhodes Town where there are many lively bars and clubs.

Tholos Shopping

Shopping in Tholos is fairly limited with mini-markets providing holiday essentials as well as a number of gift and souvenir shops. Those who wish for a greater variety of goods can take a bus to Rhodes Town which has the best shopping on the island. Within the walls, in the Turkish quarter, is Sokratous Street where you will find luxury goods, fashion boutiques and jewellers. Outside the walls are numerous craft, gift and souvenir shops where holiday mementoes can be purchased.

Tholos Eating

Tholos has a limited number of restaurants and tavernas serving a variety of food that caters for most tastes. Situated on a small island, fish plays an important part in the diet and small fried fish, shellfish and kalimari are firm favourites. Lamb and chicken are used most commonly in meat dishes. Local wines are very pleasant and good value. Fast food stalls such as Souvlatzidiki sell takeaway souvlakis, a type of kebab. For a more substantial snack these are sometimes wrapped in pita bread and called gyros.

Eating in Rhodes is meant to be an unhurried pleasure, so please don’t mistake the relaxed attitude of waiters for tardy service.
