Most of the beaches are not covered with sand, but with rocks, stones, and flint. Although there are some sand beaches to be found!
The island is covered with hills, bluffs mountains. The East side of the hills on the island are dry and rocky in the summer, while the West side is more covered with trees.
The island has a meditteranian climate, with mild winters, and hot and dry summers. It can be quite windy in the summer, which makes the temperature nice.
 
The island has several beautiful and old towns to visit, such as Rhodos town itself, Lindos, Koskinou, and others. It is worth a visit!
