Rhodes island has many spectacular beaches that are definitely worth exploring, but if you only have a few days here, we suggest you head to these amazing spots that will surely take your breath away!

 

Kallithea Springs

This is one of Rhodes’ most visited areas and for a good reason. Famous for its therapeutic properties, the ancient healing powers of Kallithea’s natural hot springs attract thousands of international visitors who come to enjoy the majestic spaces that have been wonderfully renovated.

When you are done, sit down at the chic beach bar and have a late lunch while enjoying the gorgeous views.

St Paul’s Bay

This picturesque beach in Lindos is located on the southeast coast of Rhodes. St Paul is said to have stayed here in 51 AD and a small church has been built in his honour. The bay is both shallow and protected from winds, making it ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Sunbeds and cabanas are available and waiters walk by taking orders. On the beach menu, you will find a list of cocktails, beers, wines, juices, as well as light snacks, salads and burgers. If you prefer table seating, Tambakio Restaurant is set on the edge of the water and open for lunch between 12 noon – 4 pm, and later on for dinner.

On the natural stone surfaces, you will find scattered sunbeds and umbrellas, with many set up underneath pine trees. At the top of the rocks is a kiosk serving sandwiches, snacks, coffee, fresh juice, ice cream and salads. The gorgeous underwater scenery makes Anthony Quinn one of the best areas in Rhodes for snorkelling. Just make sure you get here early as it packs out quickly.
