a small islet that during low tide becomes a
peninsula attached to the southern tip of
Rhodes. It is located some 90 kilometres
Like the islet, the two beaches are named
Prasonisi. Both are situated in a
breathtaking scenery with views to the
Aegean Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and
Prasonisi is often very windy on the west
side, while sheltered on the east.
Consequently, experienced windsurfers make
use of the windy conditions on the western
side, while rather inexperienced windsurfers
and sunbathers enjoy the eastern side.
Both beaches benefit from fine sand and very
shallow water, especially close to the
islet. The eastern beach has sections with
sun beds and parasols. Parking is possible
close to the beach.
Soft sand and very shallow water make
Prasonisi beaches perfect for children,
especially the eastern side of the beach.
Prasonisi is a world-renowned paradise for
windsurfers and kitesurfers. There are a few
surf centers and surf schools at the beach.
There are several restaurants and cafés
close to the beach. You also find a
mini-market with refreshments.
Prasonisi can't be described as a resort,
although you will find a few hotels and
rooms to let. The most popular hotel is the
Oasis Windsurfing Hotel.
The closest villages are Kattavia and
