The beaches of Rhodes can be as active or as relaxed as you choose – you can find an intimate nook even on the most popular stretches of sand and plenty of things to do besides swimming and snorkelling.
Watersports are rather customary on Rhodes’s beaches, and we can expect everything from kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and SUP to more energetic pursuits like jet skiing, water skiing, parasailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, and scuba diving. These are, however, not available everywhere. Read our beach recommendations to learn what you can practice and where.
For example, at Tsambika water sports like parasailing and jet skiing are available, but Agathi is recommended only for swimming and snorkelling, and maybe SUP if you bring your board and paddle. Traounou has coloured pebbles contrasting splendidly with the water and a charming cave to explore. Another famous beach, called Afantou, is a long stretch of white sand and pebbles, with excellent facilities of all kinds, including a golf course.
There are beautiful and famous beaches all around the island, but we recommend here the most relevant for your stay at Leonardo Kolymbia Resort. If you prefer to stay close to our hotel, you have access to a beautiful beach, steps away from your doors.
