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.
