All this however does not deter the few hardy souls, which are mostly foreigners, with a taste for exploration. It is one of the least known beaches in the west coast of Rhodes. The many pine trees give the water its deep green colour, but the constant winds stir up the water and make it blur. To get here you will have to follow the sign as you come up towards Rhodes from Monolithos, just after the village of Siana (6km - asphalt road). The beach has two small tavernas.

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.
