The second-largest town on Rhodes, there’s so much to uncover in Ialyssos. Nestled on the coastline, the town is framed by powder-soft swathes that spill over a pebbly shore. Its windy shores and gripping waves lure in thrill seekers from across the island, and clusters of windsurfing schools are perfect for beginners. Spend afternoons strolling around the center, exploring its souvenir-crammed markets, pastry-filled cafes, and olive oil-drizzled local dishes. Culture lovers should strike out on a hike to Filerimos Hill, where the remains of a Byzantine monastery lie before sweeping views of the breath-taking landscape. For some more history, hop in the car and head to Rhodes Town to discover crumbling Roman ruins and a charming old town.
