There's no beach actually in Rhodes town, the nearest beach is probably iIxia, hotels galore but that has a main road literally running right through it. Also it's on the west coast so to face the sun all the sunbeds lie facing the road. as per this photo
It's not a huge island so to get about is not a problem.
where is the best place to park when visiting rhodes town? Looks like the sort of place my history mad teenager would love but i've heard that parking is a nightmare and my husband gets a bit stressy about it.
