Pefkos Beach (Pefki) reviews & comments

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Pefkos Beach in Rhodes, and I must say it left a lasting impression. This stunning sandy beach offers warm, crystal-clear waters that invite you to take a refreshing dip. The natural beauty of the surroundings truly adds to the charm of the place. When it comes to sunbathing and relaxation there is an abundance of sun beds available for hire for all preferences and budgets. Some sun beds come equipped with cool boxes and lockable safes to ensure the safety of your valuables, although they tend to be slightly pricier.

One of the highlights of Pefkos Beach is its convenient proximity to a variety of dining options. You'll find numerous eateries nearby, allowing you to indulge in delicious meals just steps away from the shoreline. Additionally, there are friendly beach vendors who stroll along the beach, offering refreshing fruits for sale - a nice treat on a sunny warm day.

Note that Pefkos Beach can get quite breezy, particularly as the day progresses. However, this breeze can provide a welcome respite from the heat, creating a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere for sunbathers and beachgoers.

The sandy beach at Pefkos is gorgeous with soft sand and inviting, crystal warm clear water. I really loved it because it’s possible to stay in the water and swim for long times and still be in shallow waters. There is an abundance of sun beds available for hire. Some sunbeds are equipped with a lockable safe box for your valuables, but they are priced higher. There are plenty of eating options close by. You can hire a boat if you like. There are also some watersport options available like Jet Skis. The breeze can be a little strong at times, but it's rather a welcome relief during the hottest part of the day.

Pefkos is a beautiful place to visit, the sun, sea and the relaxed feeling, I have been to Pefkos twice and loved it both times. I really cannot wait to go back.
It's a lovely walk down to the beach, I love the beach, the views and the shopping area. there is plenty of bars and Restaurants. the people are very friendly.
Traveling from Pefkos to other parts of the island is easy because the bus stops are not far from the hotels. You can easily visit Rhodes town, Lindos, and Lardos and other places in between.

I love it!

Went to Pefkos first time in Oct 2008 and loved it.Went back in Oct 2011.Stayed in the Matina apts, basic but clean. It was alomost like we had never been away, everyone remembered us and we got a great welcome.Weather was great, as it had been the last time we were there. Everyone was so friendly, all the resturants we visited had a wide choice of great food but our favourite was DAMA DAMA on the beach road,Sam was a great host. In the morning we went to the FUSE BAR also on the beach road for breakfast and at night for drinks Keriakos AKA Jack was a fantastic host as was his brother Costas. We can recommend Pefkos as a holiday to remember. we will be going back this year.

First went to Pefkos in 2006. We stayed at the Finas. This year (July 2011) stayed at the Zakis, right ata the top of the hill. Good exercise only put on 2 lbs in a fortnight. Had a great time, lovely family at the Zakis and the restaurants in Pefkos were great. Rock Garden is a great place to be, we joined Yani and the boss each night, for shots and complimentary Jaeger bombs and great music, untill the early hours. We certainly wont wait another 5 years before we return.

We first went to Pefkos in 1998 and have returned almost ever year since. In all that time its hardly ever changed the odd bar may have opened but they are all very welcoming. Great places to eat, Lovely beach. I have recommended Pefkos to friends and family and all return after visiting. Its a true Gem of a holiday so much so i`m due to fly out for two glorious weeks on the 21st May 2011. By the way its 10 degrees hotter than Rhodes Town.

I would like some feedback from people who have stayed in Pefkos with teenagers. Our boys will be 18 & 16 when we travel to Greece in Jun/Jul. They enjoy exploring eating out, some walking, culture & beaches. Any suggestions? Is there anything for them to do at night after dinner if they are not too tired from a busy day? Thanks.

Commented by Jackie Warnock January 27, 2011

Just returned from Pefkos, our second visit there. We normally holiday in June/July so October was late for us, and we were unsure how the weather would be and whether the resort would be still up and running as they all wind down for the winter months. We stayed at the Pefkos Beach Hotel (2nd time) and had a fab time again. The Hotel was as we remebered ..very welcoming, nothing too much trouble and the staff great. It is nice to find a Hotel which is still run by a family offering a very simple laid back holiday for all. The staff turnover at the Hotel is virtually nil and it was nice to see familiar faces all around. The resort was in winding down mode but that did not mean everywhere was closed, in fact most restaurants, bars and shops in resort were all open if a little quiet, however that suited us fine. The weather was mixed although we had our fair share of sunny days and the one heavy storm was a welcome relief and over very quickly. Don't go in October if you want wall to wall sunshine and it did get chilly some nights but during the day it was very pleasant indeed. We will be going back to Pefkos and the Pefkos Beach Hotel I am sure. Knowing that we will have a great time.

Stayed in Lardos last year, and after a visit to Pefkos decided it was the place to stay this year. Had a fantastic 10 days staying at the Island Blue which was one of the nicest holiday resort hotels I've ever stayed in. Three pools, great bar and pool bar and really nice restaurant. Brilliant friendly staff for who nothing was too much trouble. Spoiled for choice at night but we particularly liked The Rock Garden bar. As for eating, take your pick. We had a couple of fabulous meals in Enigma, and also enjoyed Annexis, Zorbas and Spitaki.If there wern't so many posts saying how good it is I would keep quiet about it , but the words out, so if you're undecided where to go, try Pefkos. I doubt you'll be disappointed. Finally although a little expensive An evening meal on a roof top restaurant in Lindos is a must. Can see us retuning many more times.

For all the people i've been reading about this being their first ime in Pefkos you will love it, this will be our 5th year in a trot in Pefkos, staying in various places. you must try Terpsis restaurant, fantastic food. for an afternoon snack Flyers Beach Bar is the best place to go, Nikos is probably the friendliest person in the town and has his own plane which he can take you around the bays for a small charge. We can't wait for August so as we can relax in this great, friendly place again, if you are staying at the Stella Apartments see you by the pool.

We went to Pefkos last year after falling in love with Rhodes on a days cruise stop over the previous year. To 'Honest Ben' - Hire a car and take the road to Falaraki- about half an hour along the road there is a sign to the right saying 'three lovely beaches'. This leads you to three separate coves, each unique and interesting - with a great taverna on each. One in particular has several rock pools you have to walk across (deep enough to sit in to cool down) to the edge of the pools where ther are steps into cold , deep. Wonderful, quiet,and idyllic.

We went last year as we have visited Rhodes (other resorts) before an we love pefkos the best, such a wonderfull place, plenty for us all to do, you don't get harrased by people outside the resturants and the food is great, plenty to do and see, and a special mention to the finas appartments where we stayed, going back in 2011 and we want to get married there. Go and you will return again and again.

I loving reading through all the comments left, everybody seems to enjoy the place so much! The fact that so many return year upon year speaks for itself.

Me and my girlfriend have been looking at a first holiday together (alone) for a while and wanted something that we other havent done before, something new to both of us.

i like the idea of a quieter base that is pefkos and going to explore the rest of the island from there on a coupe days with a hire car.

Any must sees outside of pefkos??

Well after about a 4 year break decided it's time to go back to Pefki, booked for 15th Sept 2010.can't wait to see how it's changed, went 5 yeras on the trot at least twice a year. This is one of the most friendly places we have ever being to, I'm hoping it' still the same, the people were great, food good and the weather always seemed to be hot, staying at Apostolis Studios again and can't wait to see how everyone has grown, Alexandra's great place for an afternoon drink and snack if your hungry, then back up to Anixis to watch the sun go down while having another drink, lets hope it's still as good as I remember it.

Going to pefkos tomorrow, this will be my 13th time - almost feel like ive grown up there! There are loads of amazing places to eat and drink but my top 5 would be; armetis, nostalgia, enigma, terpsis, smiles. Wild west bar is a must, eclipse and pefkos by night are also good for some music and drinks at night. Locals are so friendly, never been anywhere else and felt so welcome. Kids are well looked after, there is very little crime. Also, take a visit to the glistra beach in lardos - beautiful!

We first visited in August 2007 and completely fell in love with the place, we stayed at the Karpathios, basic but very clean, good breakfast, nice pool, some fun greek dancing nights, a little downhill walk to the beach but we enjoyed the exercise. We are going back in 6 days time and taking our daughters with us this time. I don't tend to go back to places I have been to, as there are so many places to see in the world, however I am going back to Pefkos and know for sure it won't be the last time. The Flyers restaurant was amazing, an ideal place for a long relaxing lunch overlooking the beach and Sea. The Eclipse bar was great too.
Enjoy! I am off to pack!

Pefki was a beautiful unspoilt place when my sister and i visited it in 2001 we have not been back for financial reasons. The people we met, both greek and euopean were absolutely wonderful, the Nostalgia restaurant was very friendly, and very good food. We tried all the restaurants in the area,but settled on the Nostalgia as our favourite. I hope Pefki has not been spoiled, as there were building projects in progress when we were there. We stayed at the Finas appts, and found it basic but very clean and friendly We have been back to Rhodos and stayed in Trianda and although BLUE NOTE beach bar was a brilliant live music bar and Michalis is an excellent saxophonist, and his son a lovely man, we found it a litttle too out of the way, as we had to walk for a good 20 mins to reach them from our TREE TOPS app. Visit Pefki it is in easy reach of Lindos, a magical place!!! it gave me goose bumps as i have never felt before!!!!!!

Going back to pefkos for the forth time stayed in few hotels they are all great and the people of pefkos are so friendly. You must try the bakery up the hill by the stella apartments the bread and cakes to die for. All the restruants are great George's is the best. When we arrive in pefkos we feel right at home alway hate coming back to the uk.

Just got back from two weeks in Pefkos with my husband had a fabulous time, we stayed at the Amfritriti Hotel which was lovely Eric Kate and their family are really nice and friendly it's a lovely hotel well placed between the centre and the beach and people go back to stay there again and again there's a lovely pool and Kate does great breakfasts and lunches. There's lots of restuaraunts and bars we never had a bad meal but our favorite's were Terpsis were we had a lovely meal for our annivarsary and Enigma both good food and good service, bars were Buddies nice owners and great music and Ell Mesaa. Pefkos is perfect for couples and families and has lovely beaches in other words Pefkos is perfect.

just got back today from Palm Bay in Pefkos and I've got to say that Pefkos is a really peacfull village with very friendly people. Bars, Restaurants and Shops there are very good. You've got everything right in front of your doorstep. My aunt has been 5 times before and has enjoyed this holiday as much as the rest. Says a lot doesn't it!

Returning for our fourth visit to Pefkos and the Matina Appts Sept 07. As a family resort, Pefkos is perfect - friendly people, an abudance of fantastic restaurants and lots of child-friendly bars. If you're looking for a wild time, then Pefkos is not for you - head to Faliraki instead. Although not typically Greek (name me one tourist resort in Greece that is these days!!), it is geared to the British tourist, but travel just a few miles outside Pefkos to Lardos or Archangelos and you get a feel for the real Greece. The main beach in Pefkos is perfect for kids and the resort has a very safe feel to it. The Greeks love children and our daughter has always been treated like royalty in every restaurant. Make the effort to walk up the steep hill to Tsambikos Restaurant above the bakery - in our opinion it is the best in Pefkos. Learn a few words of Greek and the locals will love it! We recommend Pefkos to anyone looking for a relaxing family holiday and can't wait to go back.

About to visit Pefki for the 8th year this September. Wonderful place. Unfortunately my husband was taken seriously ill whilst there and we couldn't have received better treatment from the locals or the brand new hospital. Already booked for 08 and can't wait! Stella hotel fantastic, beaches wonderful and the restaurants plentiful.

What a great holiday resort,lovely people great restaurants fabulous beach,what more do you want from a holiday. Stayed last year in July at the pefki island one of the best I have stayed in for years, we are going back again in august and taking our children and grandchildren with us as I think they will love it to. Places to eat, we really loved Philosophia to watch the sunset from here was amazing, we also liked Enigma and Nostalgia. The Rock garden cocktail bar was good for a laugh the people there are so funny and make you feel very welcome also brilliant with my teenage son and the mate's he met here let them stay on the internet a lot longer than what they payed for. I hope you all enjoy your holidays in Pefkos because I love it.

Commented by Kirsty March 15, 2007

We have been to Pefkos on a few occassions over the past few years and although it is a very nice place, we have noticed a change for the worst i fear it will eventually end up much like Falaraki did, But may I say that the highlight of my holidays spent there was always the glass bottom boat trip, with Janos the skipper, he is an excellent host, if you have not had the pleasure i would suggest that you do.

An absolutely excellent place to go for a relaxing holiday!
Been 3 times in 2 years, it feels like our spiritual home. The restaurants are wonderful especially Hellas Garden where they cook the best steak we've ever tasted. We'll be going back again next year so am counting down the months!

Stayed in Pefkos which was far too long as there is nothing to do there. No shops, a few really poor cafes and quite unfriendly staff. Everywhere closes during the day time and at midnight. Not a place I will revisit. Excellent restaurants though!

I have been to pefkos twice now and thouroughly enyoyed it both times. Small and friendly place with plenty choice of tavernas. 2 cash machines - essential for todays travelers. Both Nikita and Marianthi studios are spacious and well situated. Beaches galore weather you are wanting sun loungers or a beach to yourself.

I got back from Pefkos a week ago and have fallen in love with the place, its beautifully untouched by over eager tourists and full of wonderfully friendly people, lots to see and visit all within good travelling distance. Climb the Acropolis its beautiful, one of the best sights i have ever seen, Lindos is a beautiful place.Pefkos is great place to relax and do the odd bar crawl when you feel like it! Cannot wait to go back!
