The beach at Afandou in Rhodes is made up of sand and pebbles and has plenty of facilities for hire. Whether it's young people racing on jet skis, locals and visitors enjoying their fish in the local tavernas or tourists sunbathing on the shoreline, there's enough room for everyone and no one feels crowded on the huge beach at Afandou.
The water here deepens quite abruptly. Some sections of the beach are commercially organized while others are not. There are beach and water sport centers, a small number of small restaurants and fish taverns, of which some also offer rental rooms, and canteens just above the beach. On the coast road you will also find the Rhodes golf course. The waters here are of excellent quality, although as already mentioned, deep. The advantage here is that the waters also also very fresh, even in the height of summer.
