Faliraki is located in the north of Rhodes, about 14 km (9 miles) from the Harbor and the city of Rhodes and about the same distance from Rhodes International Airport. This beautiful resort is part of the Municipality of Kalithea. Faliraki was established in the late sixties, with just a couple of small tavernas, Greek tourists and fishermen.

In the early seventies, Faliraki started to attract more and more tourists from many parts of Europe. Within a few years thanks to the beautiful and long sandy beach Faliraki had many hotels and Rental apartments able to accommodate for several thousands of tourists.
