Fodor's Review

A medieval fortress of Monolithos—so named for the jutting, 750-foot monolith on which it is built—rises above a fairy-tale landscape of deep-green forests and sharp cliffs plunging into the sea. Inside the Venetian stronghold (acessible only by a steep path and series of stone steps) there is a chapel, and the ramparts provide magnificent views of Rhodes's emerald inland and the island of Halki. The small pebble beach of Fourni beneath the castle is a delightful place for a swim.
