Malona is only 10 minutes drive from historic Lindos, the island\'s ancient capital, and home of the Knights Templar. Malona itself is internationally famous for the quality of its citrus fruits, and the village is surrounded by picturesque groves of oranges and mandarins.
Five minutes drive from the peaceful resort of Haraki Bay, and the golden sands of Agathi Beach, 10 minutes from Lindos, and under an hour to virtually anywhere else on the island. A five minute walk from the Old Olive Press will find you strolling up a quiet mountain road scrumping oranges.
Malona boasts 3 bar/internet cafes, 2 minimarts, 2 grillhouses, Jimmys (real) Greek Taverna (highly recommended), 2 grill houses, an excellent bakery, a postoffice/sticky cakeshop, and an English speaking pharmacist.
Get away from it all, romantic break, family holiday, explore historical sites, hiking, cycling, spectacular mountain scenery, beautiful sandy bays, so why not ?!?!
May, June, late Sept, October are most like a western european summer. Peak season can get HOT.
From the airport, turn left onto the main road, then take a right onto the dual carriageway (Lindos/Faliraki). At the end of this road (10km) turn right. After 25km turn right when you see the sign to Malona, and the road will take you into the village, where I will meet you and take you to the Old Olive Press.
The airport road and the Rhodes-Lindos road are dual carriageway, the rest are mainly quiet single carriageway asphalt roads. Road markings and lighting have improved vastly in recent years. Regular airconditioned buses run through Malona village, and will take you North as far as Rhodes Town, and South to Lindos and as far as Gennadi for just a few euros a head. Taxis are strictly regulated and a mere phone call away, but not cheap and the drivers are insane to a man !
Beware of drunks as you drive through the cultural centre of Faliraki. Also beware of goats south of Faliraki. The goats may also be drunk if there are windfall oranges on the ground.
Most Greeks in the resorts speak good English and at least some German. Even in the villages, most of the bar/shop managers speak good English, and a lot of the locals speak enough to help out if you get stuck.
