This could be the most beautiful beach in the world! Don’t let a tour company take you and skip the public bus. The bus to St. Paul Bay is 15 Euros each way from Rhodes for two people. Rent a car for 40 Euros for the day, cut the 2hr bus ride down to 50 minutes and rent the umbrella and two beach chairs for 40 euros for the day. We left our towels on the beach chairs and drove 4 mins to Lindos for lunch and came back. The cove is really protected and can easily be swam over and back. This beach is amazing! Skip Anthony Quinn Bay and Tsambika Beach, you won’t be disappointed!
