Rhodes Guide is the ultimate guide for Rhodes island, Greece. It includes thousands of places, from attractions and beaches to restaurants and bars. You can quickly find what you’re looking for near you, discover the best beaches or attractions you don’t want to miss, and what is amazing is that it works completely offline, no internet connection is required!
 
Rhodes Guide is divided into 4 Sections.
 
The Guide, includes Rhodes History, Places to Visit, Monuments, East Side Guide, West Side Guide, What to Eat, Weddings in Rhodes, Watersports, Rhodes Nightlife, Faliraki Nightlife, Lindos Nightlife guides.

Places section includes all places organized by category. You can select a category, like beaches, and by default you will see the best beaches of the island, organized first by rating, and as a second parameter, by distance. You are able to change the ordering to Alphabetical or by distance from your location. Each of the places in the list may include a photo and/or rating, and by selecting it, you will open the details screen with all the information available like multiple photos of the location, address, contact information, entrance fee, quality and cost rating. You can easily review the place you visited and rate it by yourself.
 
Navigation section is the second section, which contains a map with all the places on it. On the top there is a bar with a button to lock your location, a scrollable button panel in which you can enable / disable each major category, and a button to quickly jump to major locations like Rhodes City, Lindos, Faliraki, Ialysos, Prasonisi, or get an overview of the island.
Clicking a place on the map gives you a short description, a small photo, and the distance from your location. By clicking the disclosure button you will be transferred to the full details screen where you can see bigger photos and read all the details.
 
The Events section is the third major section, and the data is auto updated when an internet connection is available. This section includes everything that is happening on the island, from music concerts to festivals. The event system is marking in red events that will happen in the next 24 hours, in blue events that will happen within the week, and in grey events that will happen in the near future.
