Infrastructure & things to do
at Pefkos Beach (Pefki) beach:
Sandy beaches slope gently into the magnificent crystal blue sea waters, and spread along the coast at the foot of a pine clad hillside. The resort of Pefkos has long been a favourite summer retreat for Lindians and Rhodians alike.
If your looking for a quiet holiday in Rhodes but still don't want to miss out on amenities and fair nightlife opportunities, then Pefkos is a perfect resort to relax. There is plenty to do in Pefkos, and it is also suitable for a vacation with your family as it is a safe and friendly environment for children. Apart from summer homes belonging to people from Lindos, this relatively low profile resort area is made up of small hotels and rooms to let, occupied chiefly by groups of Scandinavians, British, Germans and Austrians.
Relax and admire the pine trees towering above the village as you swim at one of the small beautiful beaches. The main streets of Pefkos (or Pefki), back from the shore, have everything: mini markets, pharmacies, cafes, bars, bakeries and restaurants.
Pefkos is just 4km away from Lindos.
Kallithea (Kalithea) beach is one of the most popular among the locals. It is composed of many small creeks covered with pine-trees. The waters are deep, so you will have to be a bit careful when swimming there.

Kolymbia (or Kolympia) is an organized, mostly sandy beach, but by no means as crowded as the neighbouring beach of Faliraki. The hotels in the area are mostly preferred by elderly visitors and families, so the atmosphere in the entire area is somewhat relaxed.
