Visit the stunningly beautiful village of Lindos by boat. On the way to Lindos the boat passes the magnificent beaches of the East coast and ends up in scenic Lindos. There you will have three hours free time to explore the ancient Acropolis of Lindos, stroll through the maze of winding alleyways, or relax on the two golden beaches Lindos has to offer.
On the way back the boat will make stops at Tsambika and Lindos emerald bays for a swimming, and Anthony Quinn's Bay for photos.
Lindos: a magnificent acropolis on a imposing rock
On the top of the rock stands a centuries-old acropolis, proudly overlooking the archipelagos. The acropolis bears silent witness to Lindos’ glorious past, a major naval power of ancient times which reputedly had a population of 17,000.
The view of Lindos village with its cubic houses sprawling down the hillside under the acropolis is one of the most photographed scenes in Greece. The whitewashed labyrinth of little alleyways was deliberately designed to confuse pirates; today this layout makes wandering around the town a real adventure!
According to tradition the temple of Athena on the Acropolis was founded by Danaus, who came to the island with his 50 daughters to escape the rage of the goddess Hera. Follow the same ancient path that the ancient Rhodians took. When you reach the acropolis you will see a 280 BC relief of a Rhodian Trireme (ancient Greek warship) carved into the rock, an indication of the naval power of ancient Rhodes.
