Fourni beach is ideal for those who enjoy the wild beauty of nature. There are no tourist facilities here but only a small canteen that sells refreshments and light snacks. Umbrellas and sunbeds are in limited offering, it is advised that you bring your own. Otherwise you will have to get here early to secure a place in the shade of the rocks on the right-hand side of the beach. If you wish for more privacy, try the end of the path that runs to the left. Look for the rock ancient carvings in the shape of baths. According to local historians, the baths were built for the exclusive use of nobility.

There are a few pine trees, rocks to swim from, and often, waves - the western coast of the island has the roughest seas. You can find even wilder coves and bays, with sand, big pebbles and very few people, ideal for those who like wavy seas or fishing, by following the dirt roads as you make your way from Kattavia to Monolithos, opposite the solitary rock in the shape of a boat which rises up above the waves.

We visited Fourni beach in July 2019. I have to admit is was one of our most wonderful experiences. Not only because of the beach itself, which is wonderful, but also because of the whole trip to reach it. Before you reach the beach, you will pass the wonderful villages of Siana and Monolithos, both are a good place to enjoy a marvelous meal and shop for local delicacies - try the local Suma, wines and food - you will be pleasantly surprised! It was all so delicious! We then passed the castle of Monolithos - which is also on the way to the beach, where of course we stopped to visit and admire the majestic views - highly recommended! From there it is another good 15 minutes trip to the beach, which is one of the most wonderful we have visited on Rhodes. Fine sand, crystal waters, there is also a canteen to accommodate your needs. Some people were climbing on the high rocks to explore the area further which is not reachable by car, and others were camping in a little forest which is on the road right before you reach the beach. We are definitely coming back. This beach is a very good final destination if you are looking to make a day trip on this side of the island!

No pictures available; what a shame. My most beautiful photo's of my holiday at Rhodos were shot at Fourni. By the way, there is a small 'cantina' and there are umbrellas nowadays. But don't tell anyone else and enjoy the beautiful nature and the local people.

Rhodes’ miniature horse, or Rhodian Pony, is an endangered horse species found on the island of Rhodes in Greece. Efforts to save the breed began in 2001 by the "Phaethon" association, which succeeded in collecting and stabling the little horses, ensuring their survival, while sensitizing the local community to their plight. Though they are also known as Rhodian ponies they do not have typical pony traits, apart from their small size.

The Greek islands bask under endless sunshine from April to the end of October. And arguably the best of the weather is in the Dodecanese chain, 260 miles south-east of Athens and within a Zorba’s dance-step of Turkey. Dodeca means 12 in Greek, but in fact there are 16 islands here, the best-known being Rhodes and Kos. With such long summers, there’s plenty of time to plonk yourself down on a sun lounger on a Dodecanese beach.
