Rhodes beaches: an overview

The west coast of the island, from Rhodes town and the cosmopolitan Ixia down to Mandriko and Skala Kamirou (Kamiros Scala), boasts of large beaches developed for tourism.

On the eastern shore, there stand out the equally developed beaches at Kallithea, Afandou, Tsambika, Vlycha, Lindos, Lardos and Gennadi. Around the island, as a whole, you will find many small sandy coves, almost hidden, such as Glyfada, Paliochora, Kopria, the small beaches of Monolithos down to Kalamos, Kerameni Bay and the exotic beaches of Prasonisi. The west coast of Rhodes is frequently swept by shore winds, and can be rough, but is a windsurfer's paradise.

Blue flag eco-label awarded beaches

39 beaches in Rhodes were awarded in 2019 with “Blue Flags”, an international programme coordinated by the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature (HPSN). The “Blue Flag” is an international symbol recognized worldwide defining  environmental quality.
