Faliraki is the primary seaside resort village on the Greek island of Rhodes, in the Dodecanese. It is situated on Faliraki Bay, on the northeastern coast, about 14 km south of the town of Rhodes and 10 km southeast of the airport.
One of the older and larger resort areas of Greece, Faliraki is known for its sandy beach and numerous watersport offerings, as well as numerous bars and nightclubs. As such, it is favored for holidays by younger visitors, particularly British youth. As with their counterparts on the Spanish island of Ibiza, the alleged debauchery of these tourists is a favourite subject of consternation on the part of British newspapers.
