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.

Out of all the places I've been this was my favorite beach. Breath taking. Turquoise clear water and clean sand. Plenty of sea life and lizards galore up on the rocks in the hills behind the beach. Good restaurants and tasty foods.
Paradise.

The best beach by far on Rhodes.
Do go & look at the little church carved into the rocks.

This is my perfect place, like no other. a drive down a dusty, winding road and then a breathtaking sight of turquoise clear waters set against a rocky background. Bathing in the very salty, clean, invigorating waters, peering back at the rocky, dusty backdrop of the surrounding landscape, taking time to capture the moment, wondering if I would ever be so fortunate to visit this place again, I saw three ducks waddling along the beach in the full heat of the August sunshine! This appeared very strange, but, seemingly went unnoticed by the few locals sitting in the canteen, peacefully dreaming away the afternoon. These memories will live with me forever...

A beautiful, exhilarating beach with emerald green shallow warm waters. My kids loved it here. We loved it so much we've booked again and are coming here again in July 2007.

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.
