The international airport of the island of Rhodes is located 14 km from the capital of the island of Paradisi and is named after the ancient Greek philosopher Diagor Melossky. Every year, 4 million tourists fly to Rhodes to enjoy a vacation on the clean sandy and pebble beaches, stroll along the narrow streets between the snow-white houses, drink a glass of wine in the evening, admiring the sunset over the sea.
The only terminal was built in 2005 and meets all the requirements of our time, so that many visitors to the island have a pleasant rest already when they leave the ramp. Prices in stores at the airport are pleasing, almost no different from city ones. Therefore, souvenirs, olive oil and cosmetics based on it, vacuum-packed olives, Rhodes wine and honey can be bought right before departure. However, it’s better to buy all this “from the hands” from home manufacturers, anyone on the island will tell you the necessary addresses, and you will not be able to find analogues of such products according to old recipes anywhere else.
At the airport, you can have a bite to eat while waiting for a flight, but you won’t be able to order a full, hearty meal here. So it is better to take care of this in advance, finally having lunch in one of the inexpensive restaurants on the island with characteristic plentiful portions. There are no special places for smoking, which is also worth considering. But the friendly staff is always happy to answer questions from tourists and help if you need medical help, information about the island or a rental car.
From the airport to the selected hotel you can get a taxi, which at any time are on duty at the exit. The trip will cost from about 25 euros to 100 to the farthest parts of the island. In this case, a rental car is a good alternative to a taxi, which allows you to freely move around Rhodes. The abundance of tourists is forced to look for more secluded places, which can be easily done with your own transport. Beautiful flowering fields, quiet bays, a medieval city - all this is easily accessible on your own. You can rent a car at the rental desk at the airport. In order to get to the chosen place on the island, you can also use regular buses. However, they go from the airport only to the station, and there you will need to find the right one and make a transfer.
