Visit the hundred beaches around the island
Rhodes is located at the southermost point of Greece; this offers a pleasant water temperature all season.
Rhodes has been blessed with many, wonderful, long stretches of beach. Many beaches in Rhodes have been awarded the European Union blue flag.
The blue flag is an environmental award for clean beaches and clear waters. All blue flag beaches are evaluated each year. The northwestern side of the island, from Rhodes town and the cosmopolitan Ixia down to Mandriko and Skala Kameirou, has large beaches developed for tourism.
On the Southeastern shore are the equally developed beaches at Kallithea, Afandou, Tsambika, Vlycha, Lindos, Lardos and Gennadi.
On the rest of the island you will find many small sandy coves, almost hidden, such as Glyfada, Paliochora, Kopria, the small beaches of Monolithos down to Kamlamos, Kerameni Bay and the exotic beaches of Prasonisi.
The west coast of Rhodes is subject to shore winds and can be rough, but is a windsurfer's paradise.
