Amenities & things to do
at Prasonisi Beach beach:
To reach Prasonisi you will have to drive all the way to the most south part of the island. Just after Kattavia, turn left (there are signs to guide you) and after a few kilometers more driving, and from the top of a hill, Prasonisi comes into sight: waves to the right, calm sea and shelter from the wind to the left - and surfers everywhere!
It is one of the most impressive beaches on the island. Two sandy coves ending in an island that you can reach on foot or by swimming, depending on the weather and the level of the water. This is a paradise for surfers, especially in July and August. There are surfboards and wet-suits for hire.
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.
The Marine Aquarium in Rhodes is located in the basement of the Hydrobiological station and offers visitors the chance to have a close up view of the marine life of the Eastern Mediterranean, providing the impression of being underwater.
