Gennadi Beach, Rhodes

Gennadi beach combines two different characters, and is basically a continuation of Kiotari. Sand and small pebbles as far as the eye can see - and the liveliest beach parties held anywhere on Rhodes.

On the one hand there’s the vast beach where there’s always room for you and your friends to spread out your beach towels - only small parts of the beach are commercially organized - while on the other there are the Sunday parties with guests DJ's at the beach bars, which transform the character of the beach, attracting all the hip young people from around the island.

The beach in Gennadi is separated from the village, which lies above the main road, but along the road you'll find tavernas, rooms to rent, small hotels and the villas of wealthy local people.

The waters in Gennadi are crystal clear, and it is more than likely that you will find a spot where you can enjoy your bath in complete solitude.

I and my family bought a house in Gennadi in 2006, we have been welcomed by the locals and although it is a holiday home we are treated the same as the locals, we would recommend it to anyone visiting Rhodes. A real Greek village with all the charm and friendliness Greece has to offer.

Gennadi is a little piece of paradise - an absolute Greek treat - far from the frenetic tourist zone. Stergos and Poppi run a fabulous restaurant in the center of town; George, Augusta, Themetra and Rula have the best tavern on the Greek coast and Nikos and Maria have phenomenal gyros at their shop on the hill. Love it!!

2019 is another promising year for cycling events in Rhodes island. With the amazingly variable landscapes that can be friendly for beginners but at the same time advanced cyclists can find great challenges as well. Besides, what better location for a cycling event than a place blessed with more than 300 shinny days every year, where the local’s hospitality is routine and the famous Greek gastronomy approaches the peak of traditional tastes?
