Young people racing their jet-skis, locals coming for fish at the local taverns, tourists soaking in the sun on the shoreline. There is ample room for everybody on the huge beach at Afandou, and no one feels crowded.

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.
