Car rental in Rhodes allows you to plan your own itinerary whether you are on vacation or fitting in a spot of sightseeing between business meetings. Rhodes is famous for historic attractions and its numerous other Roman and Greek sites. It is also a popular beach vacation destination. However, the island's main beaches can be crowded during the summer months. Take a tip from the locals and drive along the shore between Prasonisi and Gennadi where you will find a quiet, sandy beach that is ideal for swimming and surfing.

Take the road towards Siana and park on one of the farm roads close to the mountain. The climb is quite difficult and takes around 2 or 3 hours, but you will be rewarded with magnificent views. A hard climb isn't for you? Drive up the mountain instead using the approach road to the south.
