RHODES – Rhodes harbour

The first major commercial port on the island of Rhodes, Mandraki Harbour has been in continual use since 408 BC.Now it is mainly used as a boating marina for pleasure craft and excursion boats where they can dock, protected by long breakwaters.Adorning Mandraki Harbour are three disused windmills, built by the Knights of St John which ground the grain unloaded from merchant vessels in the harbour.Flanking the harbour entrance are stone columns topped by figures of a stag and hind, the town’s heraldic animals.Mandraki is used by boats which leave there every day for short cruises to nearby islands and to bathing places on Rhodes.
