Local Products

Before leaving Rhodes, make sure you buy some local products to best remember your stay on the island of the Knights.

Melekouni (a traditional sweet with sesame seeds and honey with high nutritional value), almond pie, xerotigana (sweet pastry) and turnovers, as well as traditional orange and mandarin marmalade stand out.

The island's wines and the local varieties of Vines certified by PDO (Protected Designated Origin) and OPAP (Wine of Superior Quality) are also worth purchasing. Sparkling wines are particularly popular and souma, a type of raki, also stands out.

Lastly, Rhodes is also famous for its umbrellas, which are bought by visitors and tourists on the island.
