The East Coast in Pictures
We set out from the town towards the southeast, along the road which runs parallel to the eastern coast of the island. We drive through the seaside settlements of Aghia marina, Reni Koskinou and continue to Kalithea. Its lovely bay lined with palm trees gives an exotic appearance.
We continue along the coastal road, which is lined with ultra-modern tourist complexes, and we come to Faliraki.
This is one of the largest tourist settlements of the island, with a marvelous beach, many hotels, shops, sports facilities, etc...
We turn to the main road, and pass through the village of Afandou.

At a distance of 6 Kilometers to the south, is the site called Kolymbia, where the Epta Pighes (Seven Springs) are located. We continue southwards, we arrive at Archangelos, one of the loveliest traditional villages of the island. In this area, there are workshops and shops selling pottery.

We continue to the south on the main road and after a turn, the impressive rock of Lindos rises up to meet us, with the acropolis on its top and the dazzling white village at its foot. 
Lindos, 50 miles from the town of Rhodes
