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 beach is organized and consists of sand, pebbles and rocks on which one can climb and dive into the clear waters. Sunbeds and food are offered.
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 it`s picturesque scenery and a stunning view towards the rock on which the Lindos Acropolis stands, it`s golden fine sand and the turquoise waters.
A visit to this beach should definitely be at the top of the agenda of your stay. Children can swim in the shallow waters close to the shoreline. The location is also suitable for snorkeling, so grab your gear and head out to explore the seabed.
Those of you who love movies can ask one of the boatmen who moor here to take you to the Laki, the straits where a number of scenes from "The Guns of Navarone" were shot.
