I spent a whole summer in Rhodes this year, so I had plenty of time to discover the island. I listened to my collegues/friends as well while talking about what to see, they gave me many tips too. I like to see all the famous places, nice sights everyone talks about.
Rhodes is famous for its clear and mostly calm beaches. Most of the sandy beaches are on the Eastern part, on the Western side are pebbly beaches.
Some of the top ones are the followings:
- St Paul’s Bay
In my opinion the most beautiful one, my favourite one 🙂 It is in a small bay, above is the Acropolis of Lindos, below the sea a sandy beach and a little church. There are a lot of ships doing day excursions and many diving companies come here too. A sunbed can cost a fortune, even 7-10 EUR. There is a small restaurant, the food is delicious. There are many times weddings in the small church, the ceremony is outside the church, in front of it. You can park above the church in the parking area (enough place for a lot of cars) or you can drive a bit further to the „entrance” of Lindos and there is a parking area as well and there is a smaller beach too.
