Lindos

The village of Lindos is one of the most well known tourist destinations within the Greek islands. Situated on the eastern side of Rhodes and overlooked by the Acropolis, the village is considered one of the most picturesque in all of Greece.
Vehicles are not permitted on the village streets, with the exception of small delivery vans and the occasional motorcycle. Little or no change has been permitted to the buildings, many of which have survived in their current form since the 15th Century. Development upwards was permitted for some time resulting in the wide variety of rooftop restaurants and bars most providing superb views of Lindos Bay and Acropolis.
The village itself is a labyrinth of narrow picturesque streets, lined both sides with small shops. It can get very crowded during peak times, especially at the entrance to the square. In the main holiday season it can be difficult to even look into the shops at peak times because of the number of people passing though the small streets, however it's worth the effort. Amongst the normal tourist trappings you will also find a number of well stocked unique jewelry, pottery and clothing shops, not the cheapest on the island, but with such a wide selection varied, individual items.
As well as the world renowned Acropolis, Lindos has two excellent beaches. Lindos Bay, has two beaches, the larger and more popular can be reached on foot, down steps from the village square, following the road brings you out at the northern end of the bay on the beach farthest from the center of the village.
Following Pallas St below the Acropolis brings you out to the smaller beach at the southern end of the bay. The smaller beach is quieter and the bay more shallow.
