Infrastructure & things to do
at Agathi Beach beach:
Fine, wet sand and some canteens - this is the only thing you will find on Agathi beach in Rhodes. It is a beautiful, sheltered, cosy beach, and the only sign of civilization are its canteens, all of them providing you with the necessary food and refreshments.
At the right side of the beach you will find some interesting underwater rock formations along the coastline, making this also an ideal spot for snorkeling.
At the end of the beach there is a 700-800 year old cave chapel with a white painted front. On the left side there is a cave secured with grids and on the right side some rooms built into the rock. Camping may be possible there, so take your sleeping bag and camp at the cave which is at the end of the beach.
To get to the beach, follow the signs from Haraki (5 minutes along a passable dirt road). Half way along the road you come upon the medieval castle of Feraclos. The canteens at the beach rent out sun beds, umbrellas and have lavatories and showers.
Lindos offers two different beaches actually, sharing the same bay. There are sunbeds and umbrellas everywhere, and the beaches are well occupied, but not necessarily crowded.

As a relatively low profile beach resort area, Pefki (Pefkos) is made up of smaller hotels and rooms to let. The pines stand tall above the buildings, as you look back towards the shore from any of the chairs on the sandy coves.
