The remains of Kritinia Castle are not much to look at, but the view is spectacular. Be sure to stop by the café at the foot of the hill.

It's only a small castle but the walk up to it is lovely and the views at the top over the Aegean sea are spectacular. Definitely worth a visit

This was part of an Island tour ('Highlights of Rhodes' with Tui) and we stopped for a short 30 minute visit. It's great to climb up and see the view of the neighbouring islands from the top. Not great for anyone with mobility difficulties and/or...More

I think you really need a car. There are busses around the island but it could take a while. The island is really easy to drive around and the car rental is pretty cheap. We used Rodos cars and would definitely recommend... More
