We went to this little beach on June, after we visited the castle of Kritinia which is very close. As we went in the early afternoon, it was already somewhat occupied, but not so much that it was annoying. The beach is small, and there are sunbeds to hire, although we preferred to just make a quick jump into the water and move on to our next destination (Monolithos). The water was clean, and there is also a small taverna right at the entrance of the bay. If we did not have in mind to further explore the coast, we would probably have made a nice relaxing day for us there.
St. Paul's bay (Agios Pavlos)
This could be the most beautiful beach in the world! Don’t let a tour company take you and skip the public bus. The bus to St. Paul Bay is 15 Euros each way from Rhodes for two people. Rent a car for 40 Euros for the day, cut the 2hr bus ride down to 50 minutes and rent the umbrella and two beach chairs for 40 euros for the day. We left our towels on the beach chairs and drove 4 mins to Lindos for lunch and came back. The cove is really protected and can easily be swam over and back. This beach is amazing! Skip Anthony Quinn Bay and Tsambika Beach, you won’t be disappointed!
Faliraki is a long, lively and well developed beach. In reality, it is made up of several smaller hotels-managed sections where sun loungers and umbrellas are positioned. However, there are certain locations where you can spend an hour or two lying on a towel. Fine sand is dominant. Here, in contrast to the shore on the other side of the island, there are hardly any waves. There are a variety of fun water sports, including skiing, bananas, scooters, and cycling.
The section of Kiotari beach underneath Rodos Maris Resort is where we spent the most of our one-week vacation. We purchased some beach shoes, which were a real lifesaver, because the sand was rather coarse and there were many pebbles that were quite hot to walk on. The water gets rather deep quickly near the beachfront due to the relatively steep seabed drop, making it ideal for swimming. It was a tremendous delight cooling down in the water after spending time in the scorching heat. There were marker buoys to indicate the safe swimming areas, keeping people away from the many different water sports activities you can find at Kiotari.
Rhodes Town Beach (Elli Beach)
This was a really good tip from our travel agency: town and beach, both were right in front of the hotel for us. Elli beach is clean, you can rent the sunbeds, but you didn't have to. Coarse-grained sand is good for the feet and then off into the lovely, warm water. There are perhaps more beautiful bays on Rhodes, but we didn't miss them.
Afandou Beach (Afantou)
When we arrived at Afandou beach, we found a very nice, broad, wide beach with sand and small stones and pebbles. The sea was stunningly blue, that gets deep quite fast in few meters from the shore. There was a cozy small bar where we went (remember the beach is huge!) which serves cold drinks and food at reasonable prices. This is a very good place for a relaxing days. The umbrellas and sunbeds were we sat were of good quality, made of aluminum and textile, the snack bar we found is conveniently located and served good food. What we found interesting is that many areas of the beach are still not commercialized, which gives al lot of room to visitors who want to just find a remote spot away from other people.
Rhodes Town Beach (Elli Beach)
We spent 6 days at Elli Beach in Rhodes. As we stayed very centrally, we had many options for food, bars, cafés, shops, pharmacies etc. on practically every corner. The beach itself was just 3-4 minutes walk away from our hotel, very nice, clean and big. It is still rather crowded in the late afternoon but you can rent the sunbeds and still have enough distance from the neighbours. Greeks are generally friendly people, but especially very good hosts who do their best to make their guests feel comfortable. I'm already looking forward to my next holiday in Greece. You simply have to experience Greece.
For us, this pebble beach was perfect. It was quiet (no music or anything), not too crowded and equipped with nice sunbeds. There is a small changing room on the beach, a shower and several tavernas for food and drinks. The water is very clear and the whole beach area makes a clean impression.
Anthony Quinn Bay
We rented mopeds for the day and arrived in the middle of the morning to find that everything was packed, including all of the sun loungers on the beach and every seat in the restaurant. We had a quick look around and took a few pictures before moving on to the next bay's beach, which was less crowded and equally lovely.
Anthony Quinn Bay
Anthony Quinn is a beautiful bay with water that is ideal for snorkeling and is very clean. There are beds and loungers available, but it's better to arrive very early because they fill up quickly. The bar that overlooks the bay is a pleasant location to haze at the beach while enjoying a coffee or having a light meal.
