Malona is situated inland on the East coast of Rhodes in a beautiful, fertile valley. In fact Malona orchards produce the largest amounts of oranges, lemons and mandarins on the island as well as good quality olive oil. It is to be noted that the name Malona originates from the ancient word “Mileon” which means a place with fruits.
The village itself is, still to this day, untouched by tourism and remains a traditional village with friendly locals.
The largest church in the village is dedicated to Saint Irene and from here the views are breathtaking and an inspiration to any budding artists.
