This is a brilliant beach for anyone wanting to escape from the business of Lindos and the surrounding area - there are 2 supermarkets and 2 giftshops and a few apartments as well as hotels. There are also 2 greek restaurants which serve excellent greek food, and a rent-a-car and motorbike place. For those staying in hotels there are a few swimming pools but most people enjoy the sea which is usually very calm, and the beach is sandy.There is also a watersports where you can waterski or go on the rings or the banana, and you can also rent pedalos.Its also a popular beach for the locals to visit so it gets busy on a sunday!

The Greek islands bask under endless sunshine from April to the end of October. And arguably the best of the weather is in the Dodecanese chain, 260 miles south-east of Athens and within a Zorba’s dance-step of Turkey. Dodeca means 12 in Greek, but in fact there are 16 islands here, the best-known being Rhodes and Kos. With such long summers, there’s plenty of time to plonk yourself down on a sun lounger on a Dodecanese beach.
