Enjoy Rhodes, meet Halki.

I am sitting at a little cafe enjoying a refreshing iced-tea, just got in from Rhodes. All I can hear is some chatter at the “Kafeneion” and the sound of the water at the Jetty of the island. This is idyllic. I am on a little island in the Dodecanese, just an hour off Rhodes, that most people call Halki (Chalki) and I can reassure you how much I am enjoying my holidays in Halki.

It is so convenient to get to Halki island on a daily basis, so it is an ideal destination for a twin-center holiday, combined with Rhodes. Just take in all the fun from buzzing Rhodes and then continue on a holiday on a truly unspoilt island.

Things to see and do

Relax on your terrace listening to the sounds of the sea, enjoy the sun, take pictures of the amazing scenery, or enjoy a traditional Greek dish in one of the harbourside tavernas.

You may follow the road beyond Pondamos Beach (known as Tarpon Springs Boulevard) continues up to the deserted village of Chorio and the ruins of the Crusader castle, right on the top of the mountain and on to the monastery of St. John. If you’re a keen walker, you can continue either down to the lovely untouched bay at Yiali, or follow the road over the hills to the ancient monastery of St. John, where you may stay the night in a simple monastic cell to watch the incredible sunset.

Getting to Halki

Flights into Rhodes from all major airports or via Athens. We can arrange your private transfers from the airport to your villa in Rhodes and/or to one of our villas in Halki.
