Hundreds of visitors and locals visit Elli beach in Rhodes Town daily. It defies one's powers of imagination to conceive what this beach must have seen in all the years since the English writer Lawrence Durrell described it as the finest beach in the Mediterranean.

The multi-coloured umbrellas, the blonde Scandinavian beauties lounging on their sun beds, the towering hotels, the Casino Rodos and the Rhodes Aquarium in the background, all of them once a favourite subject for photographers, are now the theme of cult postcards. Hundreds of foreign visitors descend on the beach in Rhodes Town every day, as well as local people enjoying their midday break.

On Elli beach you will find sun loungers, nearby restaurants, a large choice of water sports and even a volleyball court on the beachfront. You will also find a tennis court right next to the Casino, above the beach road.

On Ellis bay you don't pay for a sunbed, you only have to buy something to drink/eat to use them. We were only on the right of Ellis beach, but were very satisfied to be there. We felt safe there. There was one man looking out for everything there all the time. Drinks and food can be served by the sunbeds (little tables there) or in the shadow at the restaurant. On Windy Beach (on the west coast of Rhodos town) we were robbed for our backpack while it stood between our sunbeds and we where lying there. On Ellis beach that could not have happened. Very nice!
