St. Paul's beach consists of two tiny creeks and a little chapel at the end. This is where people from the upper part of Lindos village prefer to come to swim. Those from the lower part usually go to Lindos Beach. But there are quite a few foreign tourists here as well.

The right side of the beach offers sunbeds, food and island music, while the left side offers solitude.

It is believed that St. Paul came here in the year 51 AD to teach Christianity to the Rhodians. The beautiful small church built on the hillside to the right of the bay is also a very popular wedding location.



St. Pauls Bay is known for its picturesque scenery and a stunning view towards the rock on which the Lindos Acropolis stands, its golden fine sand and the turquoise waters.

Visiting this beach should definitely be on the top of your itinerary for your visit. Children can swim in the shallow waters close to the shoreline. If you want to cool down, go for a refreshing swim in the sheltered waters along the bay. Or grab your snorkeling or scuba diving gear and head for some seabed exploration.

Dodeca means 12 in Greek, but in fact there are 16 islands here, the best-known being Rhodes and Kos.
