Petaloudes is a region in Rhodes where you will find one of the most stunning sights in the world. A privately managed reserve has an incredible variety of butterflies and other lovely insect in it. The region known as the valley of Butterflies has always been home to these creatures but due to the reserve you can now see them in their protected environment.
The whole valley is worth exploring, of course. If you have the wandering spirit you can spend hours here. But if you only have time to see just one thing, make it the butterfly reserve where a specific species of black and yellow butterflies have been carefully preserved. It is certainly a delight for nature lovers but adventurers will enjoy it as well.
