Attracting thousands of tourists of all nationalities, Faliraki, 12 km from the capital Rhodes, is renowned for its youthful ambiance and the inexhaustible enthusiasm for partying until dawn. The area has very good hotels and a well-organised beach stretching for 4 km that is one of the most beautiful in Greece. Besides a water park, there are facilities for water sports and, for the more adventurous, extreme sports. Famed for its exuberant nightlife, the resort is home to many well known nightclubs catering for all musical tastes.

A recommended excursion is to the archaeological site at Sarantapihos, adjacent to Kalithies, which is believed to be part of an acropolis (citadel) from the Archaic period (800 BC – 480 BC). Also worthy of a visit is Erimokastro with ruined ancient walls and the old monastery of the Prophet Amos (tou Prophiti Amos) at the top of the hill just outside Faliraki.
