Rhodes beaches: an overview
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.
