Best Beaches in Rhodes
Beach holidays to Rhodes are relaxing thanks to the island’s calming natural landscape, azure waters and golden sand that greets you when visiting its coastline. Popular with locals, tourists and Greek nationals, Rhodes beaches are among the best in all of Greece, and it isn’t hard to see why. No two beaches are the same – each has its own unique character, and whether you want a quiet cove or busy nightlife, clear waters for enjoying water sports or a snorkelling session, there is a beach for you on this beautiful Greek island. Here are some of the best beaches in Rhodes.
An ideal beach for swimming and families, the fine sand and shallow waters of Agathi make this beach a very popular stretch of sand and one of the best beaches in Rhodes. As you make your way to the beach, you’ll find the Castle of Feraclos, which is also worth exploring. There are a few restaurants nearby offering a mix of international fare and refreshments. These restaurants also rent out sun loungers, and have toilets and showers. Apart from this, the beach has little amenities, so make sure you pack your beach bags accordingly. On the right side of the beach, you’ll find small coves and rock formations that are perfect for exploring and spotting fish and marine life when snorkelling. You’ll also find an 800 year old chapel right at the end of the beach!
Agios Georgios Beach
Agios Georgios is a wonderful place if you crave solitude and a quiet, laid-back vibe away from the bustle of other resort beaches. Expect golden soft sands and majestic cedars as a backdrop. Accessed via a long 7-8km dirt road (so a car is essential), it is named after the small church you pass en route to the beach. There are no restaurants or nearby shops or facilities, so make sure you pack food, water, towels and sun cream with you for your day on the beach. Part of the beach is ideal for swimming and snorkelling, so bring your goggles and gear with you. The other part is soft, powdery sand, which is why it has a reputation for being one of the best sandy beaches in Rhodes.
Faliraki beach is one of the most popular Rhodes beaches. Stretching more than 5km, this vast shoreline has entertainment, restaurants and amenities aplenty. Leave your Villa Alexia and spend the day enjoying the mixture of beach clubs, nightclubs, bars, restaurants, water sports, adrenaline sports, shopping and more. Sun loungers can be rented for the day, and the beach has plenty of showers and toilets should you need them. As evening falls, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to dinner, with a wide range of tavernas serving up traditional cuisine.
A mixture of fine sand and pebbles, this beach has two different sides to it, but is one of the liveliest beaches near Rhodes, where you can always find an evening party. There’s plenty of sand on offer to lay your beach towel on or rent a lounger during the day. At night on certain days, beach parties are hosted, and everyone is invited! The nearby village of Gennadi has plenty of tavernas and amenities should you need refreshments. Gennadi is very popular with swimmers thanks to its crystal-clear waters, but the coastline is ample enough that you are likely to enjoy your swim in peace.
