Summary

Rhodes, the beautiful island of the sun, is the largest of the Dodecanese islands in the Aegean Sea. On average, Rhodes has 300 days of sunshine a year.

Description

While between April and October the chances of uninterrupted sunshine are virtually 100%. The island well known as a top windsurfing and kitesurfing spot in Europe also offers rock climbing at several crags across the island.

The main sector of the island is Ladiko, located just after Faliraki a well known touristic place on the east side of Rodos. Nearby are also "Antony Quinn" and Afantou sectors. Very close to these sectors there is a magnificet beach - Traganou - where you can really enjoy bouldering next to the sea water. Further, south you can visit Gadoura a small but stunning sector. In the middle of the island there is sector Platania and on the west side remotely located, Siana sector. Finally nearby the famous Lindos bay and Acropolis of Lindos there is a great rock - future project - with very big possibilities. Rockclimbers are welcome to open new routes.
