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.

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.
