Despite the fact that Acharavi is overdeveloped. Roda is not the same and cannot be recommended to the independent traveller. The crossroads on the coastal highway create a rather ugly first impression. Roda is far away from the airport so getting there requires approximately three hours trip. The road are bably maintained and they are quite narrow making even more difficult to travel there.
Old Roda as the signposts call it, it is a small triangular warren of Alleys on the east side of the road that links the highway to the seafront. This area and the seafront itself has many hotels, restaurants and bars, while other services tend to be back on the link road.
