A few miles outside Rhodes’ poster-child Lindos is the little resort of Pefkos, a former fishing village that has grown into a charming beach resort. Perfect for peaceful getaways, the resort provides an award-winning beach on its beautiful coastline, with a vibrant little town centre full of bars and places to eat. If you’re on holiday with your family, Rhodes’ best water park is less than an hour’s drive.
Sleepy bays, rocky coves and sparkling seas are a big attraction in Pefkos; there’s nowhere better to soak up the Mediterranean sunshine. But there’s so much more to enjoy on. You could give watersports a go (maybe you’d like to learn to windsurf) or take a glass-bottomed boat trip and see colourful marine life beneath. If you’re travelling with the kids in tow, you won’t want to miss the Faliraki Water Park; it’s bursting with slides, wave pools, and games.
In May and June, it’s hot but not too hot.
