  • Prasonisi is, in principle, an island, but can be reached from the southerly tip of Rhodes by waded or even dry feet. We visited the beach in late October and then there was no issue on the island. Sea water Tyrskysi High and prevented the island from entering. Apparently, in summer time, sea water is on average at its lowest. The beach on the island of Rhodes is a nice bathing place, even if you can't get to the island.

  • Fantastic very large sand beach where the Agean and Med seas meet. Very busy with numerous wind kites and wind surfing schools. A number of very nice tavernas at the start of the beach,  more »
