We were on Rhodes for six nights to shed the big city life at the start of our summer Europe trip. We chose the tiny beach town of Stegna as our base, spending our days relaxing beachside, swimming and exploring the other towns on the island.

We landed at Rhodes Diagoras airport courtesy of a direct Ryan Air flight from London Stansted for £48 (€61.50) each, although we each paid an additional £15 (€19.20) for the privilege of taking 15kg of luggage. The flight took 3.5 hours, landing at 12:35.
