Far from the bustle of town and the tourist resorts are these two farming villages which calm the soul and call you to go down inaccessible paths in order to discover their true beauty.
The picturesque port at Fanes Beach is a haven for fishing boats when strong northerly winds are gusting.
Ialyssos or Trianda (10 km from Rhodes Town)
Spread out across a seemingly endless green plain at the foot of the ancient acropolis of Filerimou is one of the most tourist-oriented areas of Greece. Ialyssos was sung of by Pindar and as its pre-Hellenic suffix indicates it was inhabited from ancient times by a race of people known for their merits. The family of Diagoras, Olympic victors in the Panhellenic games were from Ialyssos. There are no clear sources of information about the alternative name Trianda. According to one version the area was once divided up into thirty shares while a second version would have it that it is a corruption of the Greek word for statue since one was found here.
Maritsa (17 km from Rhodes town)
This village is renowned for its traditional taverns and active nightlife all year round. One should not come to Maritsa in search of charming buildings or natural beauty but to enjoy oneself and taste the village's traditional recipes. Near the village at the old international airport, car and motorbike races are held as well as model airplane shows.
In the farming village of Pastida one can admire the small, picturesque Byzantine monasteries and churches and see how the ordinary people of Rhodes live in the countryside while also tasting the local, traditional cuisine.
This semi-mountainous traditional village is well known for its pure honey and the traditional drink souma, a powerful distillate of grapes made using age-old methods.
Skala Kamirou is linked with Kritinia in administrative terms. It is a small port with ferry connections between Rhodes and Halki island.
A bustling town with an extensive expanse of beach, Soroni lies very close to the Aghios Soulas Monastery known for its feast held in July.
Theologos (12-13 Km from Rhode town)
Theologos or Tholos is a modern coastal resort with a village that retains its traditional air. Of particular interest are the ruins of the ancient deme of Istanii and the churches in the area.
