With an area of 1,400 km2, Rhodes is the fourth largest Greek island and the capital of the Dodecanese archipelago in the southeastern Aegean Sea. Rhodes in ancient times was an incredibly important port, and the presence of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Colossus of Rhodes, was evidence of the glorious history of the island. The bronze statue of Helios, the Greek god of the sun, was more than 30 meters high and was installed in the third century BC. For almost 70 years, he proudly stood at the entrance to the port of Mandraki in the eponymous capital of Rhodes,and then was destroyed by a strong earthquake. Today, in the place where the Colossus of Rhodes once stood, a magnificent fauna is growing that supports the existence of numerous deer of the island, which, due to their prevalence, are also the official emblem of the island. Hibiscus plants are also typical of the region and add an extra touch of beauty to the background of the island. Rhodes became the second most popular Greek holiday island after Crete. Rhodes has 117,000 inhabitants, 90% of which live on the island’s tourism industry. In Rhodes, 3,000 hours of sunshine a year shine, which means that 250 kilometers of coastline, as well as many bays, can be used completely for wonderful walks, both walking and sea.
Surfers especially appreciate the winds in this region: the typical Meltemi summer winds are quite strong and can reach six on the Beaufort scale. They are well known on the north and west sides of the island, especially in Ixia, a surfing paradise. The Prasonisi Peninsula in the south also has a good reputation for windsurfing, while Fanes, Kremasti, Theologos and Trianda are known as good places for surfing. Divers also appreciate Rhodes for its many beautiful underwater areas,the most famous of which are those located near the hot springs of Kallithea on the northeast coast, where there is also a diving school.
