Gennadi is a small traditional hamlet in southern Rhodes, about 45 minutes drive from Leonardo Kolymbia Resort. It boasts typical village architecture, with whitewashed buildings, little mom and pop shops, and fountains with natural spring water that comes from the Pano Vrisi cave.
Although small, Gennadi has some noteworthy landmarks – St. John's Church dates from the 19th century, and it is dedicated to Agios Ioannis Theologos. It is an imposing structure, with whitewashed façade and a high bell tower. A second church, dedicated to St. Anastasia and dating from the 12th century can be found outside Gennadi, in the village cemetery.
The Olive Press Museum St. John Theologos in Gennadi is another interesting attraction.
The beach of Gennadi is separated from the village by the highway. It is a clean stretch of sand and pebbles, with a well-organised part where you will find sun loungers, umbrellas, showers, and tavernas; and a quainter side where you can enjoy sunbathing in a more intimate setting. There are not many watersports opportunities here, but you can go swimming, snorkelling, canoeing and kayaking, or rent a pedalo.
