The Valley of the Butterflies is one of the most beautiful natural spots on the island of Rhodes.
Situated 25 km southwest of Rhodes Town near Psinthos, Petaloudes attracts thousands of visitors during the summer months to see the swarms of Jersey Tiger moths, which settle there each summer in order to breed.
The breathtaking wooded valley with small flowing streams and waterfalls running throughout the valley, is home to liquid amber trees, which from June-September are covered with the yellow and black wings of the moths. Landscaped paths, bridges and stairways guide you through the enthralling valley, where you can enjoy a beautiful, peaceful walk even when there are few or no moths. The Valley of the Butterflies is a must see attraction for everyone, nature lovers or not.
