Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands, is affectionately known as the island of the sun. With its year-round sunny weather, crystal-clear waters, and beautiful beaches, it’s no wonder that Rhodes is a haven for beach lovers from around the world.
Begin your beach journey at Prasonisi, located at the southernmost tip of the island. This unique beach is where the Aegean and Mediterranean seas meet, creating perfect conditions for windsurfing and kite surfing. The beach is split into two by a sandbar, with the Aegean Sea on one side offering larger waves for windsurfers, and the Mediterranean Sea on the other side offering calmer waters for kite surfers. The sight of colorful kites and sails against the backdrop of the blue sky is truly mesmerizing. Prasonisi is not just for water sports enthusiasts, though. Its unique geographical features and the lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula make it a fascinating place to visit for any traveler.
For a family-friendly beach option, head to Tsambika Beach. This long, wide beach boasts golden sand and crystal-clear waters, making it one of the best beaches in Rhodes. The beach is well-organized, with sunbeds, umbrellas, and a variety of water sports available. There’s also a beach volleyball court and a small chapel on a hill overlooking the beach, which you can reach by climbing 300 steps. With its amenities and beautiful surroundings, Tsambika Beach is the perfect place for a fun-filled beach day with the whole family.
Another must-visit beach in Rhodes is Antony Quinn Bay. This small, picturesque cove is surrounded by pine trees that reach down to the water’s edge. The beach is named after the famous actor Antony Quinn, who bought the land during the filming of ‘The Guns of Navarone’. The clear, emerald waters and the beautiful surroundings make it a perfect spot for snorkeling or simply relaxing and soaking up the sun. There’s also a beach bar where you can enjoy a refreshing drink while taking in the stunning views.
Rhodes’ beaches offer something for everyone, whether you’re a water sports enthusiast, a family with children, or simply someone looking for a place to relax and enjoy the sun. The island’s beautiful beaches, combined with its sunny weather and the warm hospitality of its people, make Rhodes a true paradise for beach lovers.
