Stay safe

  • Colorful sea shells offered for sale - mostly in the harbour area - are often actually imported from Asia or the Caribbean. Not only do they make no authentic Rhodes souvenir, many species for sale are also protected and bringing them back home may get you into considerable difficulty
  • Many brand name products for sale in the tourist shops may be fakes and/or unlicensed (t-shirts, towels, hand bags, and so on)
