Sumary of Peace, antiquity and beaches: a guide to five famous Greek islands:

  • The black volcanic beaches on the eastern shore, which would be the defining feature of a lesser destination, seem here to be the cherry on the cake.
  • try Chez Sophie, a budget-boutique family-run hotel laid out around a kidney-shaped pool, 50 metres from Kamari beach (from €77 B&B).
  • Kalimera Hotel in Akrotiri is a tad isolated but has a pool, a bus stop in front of the entrance, and yes, some caldera views (from €117 B&B).
  • Behind you lies the old town, a Unesco world heritage site and the largest inhabited medieval town in Greece, built by the Knights of St John before they fled to Malta.
  • Rhodes also claims the best examples of Italian colonial architecture, blending elements of Italian ornamental style with Greek and Ottoman features that render them truly unique – art deco meets eastern chic – dating from the interwar years, when the town was groomed as regional capital in Mussolini’s potential Mare Nostrum.
  • Among the most impressive of these churches is Agios Nikolaos Foundoukli near the remarkable ghost city of Campochiaro – now Eleousa – built with elegance by the Italians in the 1930s, but abandoned after the second world war.
