Between Rhodes and the small resort town of Charáki is the east coast of the island dotted with coves, one is more beautiful and picturesque than the other.
The beaches here are extremely varied, pebble beach between the rocks in the Anthony Quinn Bay and a kilometer long, wide sandy beach with sand dunes looking blown up sand hills on the Tsambika Beach.
Therefore, it is no wonder that in meanwhile the tiny fishing village Fakáki become the most important destination of the island.. But the village is clearly divided into two parts. The real seaside resort is the entertainment and nightlife center of the island with numerous clubs and musicclubs, amusement parks and snack bars.
Especially young British feel at home here. In the north are the most major hotels on the island along a long sandy beach.
In Faliráki are no points of interest. By its proximity to Rhodes town, it is an acceptable destination for all-in travelers. The individual traveler can better stay in Charáki of Stegná.
