This is for sure one of the most impressive beaches on Rhodes, at its southernmost end. Two sandy coves ending in an island that you can reach on foot or by swimming, depending on the weather and the level of the water.

Vlicha (Vlycha) is a little beach just before Lindos has a sun bed for everyone, while the sea here deepens smoothly and gradually.

St. Paulis (Agios Pavlos)

At St. Paulis bay, you will find sand and pebbles, with rocks from which to dive into the crystal water. You will have to leave the car well before you reach the beach, and then you have to walk. You can also come here from Lindos on foot.
