For a journey to Prasonisi, one of Rhodes' most spectacular beaches, make your way to the southernmost tip of the island. After passing through the quaint village of Kattavia, simply follow the signs and continue along a well-maintained, albeit winding road for a few kilometers until you reach the top of a hill.
As you crest the hill, the breathtaking expanse of Prasonisi Beach will come into view. To the right, the waves beckon to surfers, while to the left, calm waters and shelter from the wind provide a serene atmosphere. Whether you're a surfer or simply seeking a stunning beachfront destination, Prasonisi is an absolute must-see.
Undoubtedly one of the most awe-inspiring beaches on the island of Rhodes, and possibly even the entire country of Greece, Prasonisi Beach boasts a wide expanse of sandy shoreline that gradually narrows as it approaches the island's tip. Eventually, the beach gives way to two sandy coves, culminating in a small, separate island that can be reached either by foot or a refreshing swim, depending on the weather and water level.
Surfers flock to this paradise, especially during the months of July and August when the waves are at their most impressive. For those without their own gear, surfboards and wetsuits are available for rent.
It's important to exercise caution when swimming, as the sea currents can be strong. If you do decide to make the swim, proceed with extra care and avoid areas occupied by surfers to minimize the risk of accidents. To find a safer spot for swimming, it's best to head towards the beginning of the beach, where there tends to be fewer surfers. Whether you're a surfer or simply seeking a stunning beachfront escape, Prasonisi Beach is a must-visit destination on Rhodes.
It is well worth a visit even if you are not a surfer yourself, just to enjoy the magnificent landscape and admire the skill of the surfers. All the houses offering rented rooms also operate their own taverna.
