Jump to: navigation, search

Theologos, also called Tholos is a beachside settlement on the mid-north east coast of Rhodes. It is situated a few kilometres to the west of Rhodes International Airport, "Diagoras" (Greek: Κρατικός Αερολιμένας Ρόδου, "Διαγόρας") or (Diagoras International Airport) (IATA: RHO). Theologos is about 22 km from Rhodes Old Town.

A few hotels and apartments are near the pretty but slightly breezy beach. This is more traditional village than tourism precinct and the locals are warm and friendly people.

Get out[edit]

  • Afandou - One of the big villages on the island. The golf course of Rhodes is situated in this area along with a long beach
  • Archangelos - The second largest town on the island
  • Asklipio - inland village, site of an old church and a castle
  • Faliraki - Rhodes' "action resort". Go there to party, everything else is better somewhere else - altough the hotels north from faliraki are much quieter. Nice beaches, a lot less winds than on the west coast and really good public transport. Hotels near the water park do not interest clubbers, and are really family friendly.
  • Ixia - West coast resorts, close to Paradisi and Tholos, nearby to the airport.
  • Rhodes city - The biggest city on the island and seat of the local government
