3 Essential Dives when in Rhodes!


Pebbling Traounou beach

Traounou Beach (sometimes spelled Traganou) between Faliraki and Afandou, it’s a lovely stretch of pebbles and sand. It is often included as a stop in boat trips to Kallithea Bay and Anthony Quinn Bay, especially for its small cave, which can be explored, and great insta-place!

Only a small part of this beach is organized with sun loungers, changing cabins, and showers. There’s also a small canteen for some beer or ice cream.

You can access Traounou Beach in about 30 minutes from Rhodes or 15 minutes from Faliraki. There’s a large parking lot by the beach, so you have easy access to the beach. Since the beach is pebbly, you might want to wear proper footwear like slippers or water shoes. The water is relatively deep and cold but it will give you a refreshing and revitalizing experience, especially if the air temperature is between ’30s!


The Sandy Agathi Beach

Agathi Beach is noted for its exquisite sand and shallow waters. You’ll notice the Medieval Castle of Feraclos (Feraklos) on your drive to the beach, which is also worth a visit. Fine, wet sand and some canteens – this is the only thing you will find on Agathi beach in Rhodes, after all, it’s only what you need!!! The beach is a lovely, secluded haven to spend the day, and the only sign of civilization is the canteens, for the necessary snacks and refreshments!

At the northern end of the beach, near a small pier, you’ll find unusual underwater rock formations lining the coast, making this an excellent site for snorkeling as well.

The cave chapel, with a front that is painted white, stands at the end of the beach and is around 800 years old.The entrance is on the left, and it’s filled with cages made of iron bars. On the right is a cave with grilles secured within it, as well as some structures built into the rock.

Follow the signs from Haraki to get to the beach. Halfway along the road you come upon the medieval castle of Feraclos. The canteens at the beach also rent out sunbeds, umbrellas and have lavatories, showers and toilets.


The space-y Kalathos Bay

Kalathos beach offers sand and tiny pebbles for almost 4 kilometers of the beach area. Even on the busiest days, when every beach in the country is packed with people, you’ll find a place here just for you.

There is a mix of sand and pebble on this great beach. Finding a private place should be simple. The waters in Kalathos are some of the finest on Rhodes Island. In busier spots of the beach, you will also find loungers and umbrellas to rent if you would like to. On the street above the beach, you will find tavernas, snack bars, and supermarkets to cover every need.

Tip: Buy some watermelon and have it right in front of the sea!
