Top 10 best beaches
Rhodes has many
wonderful beaches and several of them have an
exciting history. The diversity is vast and includes
small, cosy bays, vibrant town beaches and unique
natural beaches. This Top 10 has something for every
No. 1: Tsambika
The best beach in Rhodes is
Tsambika, which is an impressive sand
beach on the east coast of the island. The beach is
located in beautiful and undisturbed surroundings
between the mountains and there are no nearby
holiday resorts. Tsambika has all the necessary
facilities, including beach restaurants, and is very
child-friendly. Definitely worth a visit!
No. 2: Prasonisi
Prasonisi on the south point of Rhodes is
also a unique natural treasure. At high tide,
Prasonisi is a small island, but at low tide, a
sandhill makes it into a peninsula. There are two
large beaches, of which the most windy one is the
preferred playground for wind and kitesurfers in
Rhodes. The other one is perfect for sunbathers and
families. If you have rented a car, this natural
treasure is a must-see.
No. 3: Faliraki
Faliraki is the largest holiday resort in
Rhodes. This is particularly due to the very long
sand beach, stretching out in front of the holiday
resort. The beach has all facilities, including a
fine selection of water sports activities, and
behind the beach, there are many bars, cafés and
restaurants. The beach is very child-friendly with
shallow and usually calm water.
No. 4: St. Pauls
St. Pauls Bay is an almost closed bay
with a view of the Acropolis near Lindos. The bay
has two beaches in beautiful surroundings. The
largest beach is located in the southern end of the
bay and is one of the few man-made beaches in
Rhodes. A nice beach in peaceful surroundings and
with very child-friendly water.
No. 5: Glystra
Glystra is a lovely natural beach on the
east coast north of the holiday resort Kiotari. A
beautiful sand beach with crystal clear water, which
is also shallow and suited for children. The beach
has all the necessary facilities, including a small
family-owned beach café.
No. 6: Pefkos
Pefkos is a small and relatively unknown holiday
resort south of Lindos. Right in front of the town,
there is a lovely long sand beach with a view over
the mountains. The beach has all the necessary
facilities, but is very calm and child-friendly.
No. 7: Lindos
Lindos is a great
town, but so is the beach! From the golden sand on
the beach, you have a marvellous view of the
historical town and the Acropolis above it. You
cannot get a much better view than that. With its
shallow and calm water, the beach is also very
No. 8: Anthony
Anthony Quinn is
named after the popular actor with the same name.
After having filmed ”The Guns of Navarone” in
Rhodes, the actor bought the beach, but the purchase
was annulled at a later time. The beach has a lovely
location inside a magnificent rocky bay, perfect for
a romantic trip to the beach.
No. 9: Ladiko
Ladiko is located
in the bay next to the beach Anthony Quinn, and is
almost just as breathtaking. The many rocks in the
water make the bay perfect for snorkelling, but less
suited for families with small children.
No. 10: Elli
is close to the city of Rhodes and the most popular
town beach on the island. There are many restaurants
and beach bars, particularly in the southern end
near the Mandraki harbour, which attracts a lot of
young people. A lovely vibrant town beach, which is
more peaceful in the northern end.
