Fanes

Westwards, along the coast road of Rhodes is the village of Fanes, just west of Soroni, featuring a picturesque harbor and a flat, isolated beach with tamarisk trees for some natural shade.

We are getting out of large hotel territory here and about 30km from Rodos city. The beach is long and flat, mainly fine sharp sand and shingle with a couple of decent tavernas at the back of the beach. Windsurfing and kite-surfing are hugely popular here, given the wide flat sands and the northerly exposure.


I have a little house in fanes between the village and the local beach. I visit (from New York) once a year to visit Fanes and firends. Fanes is a beautiful place especially in the summer (beach) and in the fall during the harvest of grapes and olives.
