(Ro-dos in Greek)
Many people who visit Rhodes enjoy cruises to other nearby islands as part of their trip. One-day cruises in Rhodes are particularly popular with those wanting to visit nearby Symi Island or even Marmaris in Turkey. Cruises in Rhodes are also available for those looking to explore other parts of the island with boats to Lindos departing from both Faliraki beach and Rhodes town. At Lindos, tourists can enjoy a relaxing cruise along the magnificent coastline, with tour operators usually stopping off near the town to allow guests to shop and soak up the sun. Many tour companies also offer seven day cruises through the Greek Islands of Rhodes, Simi, Kos, Kalymnos, Patmos, Samos and Kusadasi as well as Ephesus in Turkey.
