Infrastructure & things to do
at Glyfada Beach beach:
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.
Kavourakia beach is a quieter alternative to Faliraki beach and the beaches in Rhodes town, and is easily accessible from both sites.

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.
