The Basics

At Afandou, you’ll find everything you need for a day at the beach. Sun beds and umbrellas line the main stretch, served by several waterfront restaurants, snack kiosks, fish tavernas, and beach bars. The area is also a burgeoning hot spot for windsurfing and water sports.

Day cruises along the coast of Rhodes often stop at the beach for the chance to swim and snorkel near its rock formations. However, travelers who’d rather explore at their own pace can rent a boat to explore Afandou and other island beaches, including Kokkini Ammos and Anthony Quinn.

When to Get There

The best season to enjoy the beach is during early fall, when temperatures are still warm enough for swimming, rain is unlikely, and the beach isn’t overly crowded. Even in summer high season, though, there’s usually room enough to spread out.
