Agathi - Charaki
Agathi is one of the most beautiful beaches on the eastern side of the island. Apart from the wide sandy beach and shallow waters, the area has an additional advantage: it offers a stunning view of the medieval Feraklos (or Faraklos) castle, which stands right in front of the beach. The beach was named after Agia Agathi (Saint Agatha), to whom a small church nearby is dedicated.
It is a narrow cove with a small sandy beach with tiny pebbles on the southern side of the rock on which the acropolis of Lindos is built. In spite of its size, it is particularly crowded.
An endless beach on the southern side of the island, about 20km long. It does not attract many visitors because when south winds are blowing, the waves are too high. The entire Apolakkia bay has been included in the European NATURA 2000 Network.
Traounou - Afandou - Plaka
An endlessly long and very wide beach with sand and small pebbles. The same beach is separated into three parts: at the beginning it is called Traounou or Traganou coast, in the middle it is called Afandou beach and at the end, Plaka. It is organized at various points and there are also water sports facilities.
Ladiko (Anthony Quinn)
Two small neighboring beaches near Faliraki. Ladiko is a small bay with a sandy beach and right next to it is the Anthony Quinn beach, also known as Vágies (stressed on /a/) or Vagiés (stressed on /e/), its traditional name. The latter is small, with pebbles and huge rocks inside and out of the sea. When Anthony Quinn, the actor, was in Rhodes for the filming of “The Guns of Navarone”, he was negotiating the purchase of this particular bay. He failed to acquire it in the end, but the name remained...

Ixia - Ialyssos
Right after the city of Rhodes and all through the way to the village of Ialyssos (formerly named Trianta), an immense organized beach with white sand and turquoise waters extends.

Various wind surfing, beach volleyball and beach soccer tournaments are held throughout the summer.

A very quiet, 4.5 km long beach with black sand at the end of a large bay on the east side. The area is of ecological importance because the sea turtle Caretta caretta uses the dunes of the beach to lay its eggs. A tavern is open.
Prasonisi is the southernmost beach of Rhodes. It is a sandy “tip” of land washed by the sea on both sides, right and left. Prasonisi is also the name of the lush islet that is almost tangential to the beach. In summer, Rhodes and Prasonisi are connected through a strip of sand about 500 m long and one can go from one island to the other on foot. The most bizarre thing at this place is that the sea on one side of the strip is always choppy, while at the same time on the other side it is calm. This peculiarity has helped Prasonisi become one of the surfers’ favorite beaches.
