Holidays to Pefkos

Sitting pretty on the east coast of Rhodes, just a few miles from Lindos, you’ll find the tiny resort of Pefkos. This traditional Greek fishing village has grown into an appealing beach destination over the years, but it still holds on to its old-world charms. Holidays to Pefkos are all about days on the Blue Flag beach surrounded by fragrant pine trees, and laid-back evenings in Greek tavernas. And if you’re on holiday with the family, it’s well worth heading out for a fun-filled day at Rhodes’ best waterpark; it’s only an hour’s drive away and a huge hit with the kids!

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.

Holidays to Pefkos will transport you to an island escape with Blue Flag beaches lined with scented pine trees. Powdery golden sand flows into clear, shallow waters, and from here you’ll see Rhodes’ rugged landscape in the distance. The main beach is sprinkled with sun loungers and umbrellas for your comfort, and beachfront cafés are a short stroll away. When you’ve finished relaxing, you can try your hand at watersports adventures. How about windsurfing or water-skiing? Or perhaps you’d prefer to take a leisurely ride in a pedalo or go snorkelling in the crystal-clear water?

Less than an hour’s drive away, you’ll find Faliraki Water Park; it’s often thought of a Rhodes’ finest waterpark. The ultimate family day out awaits here, where the little (and the not-so-little kids!) can splash around in swimming pools, ride the slides and dart through black holes. When you’re ready to relax, you can take it slow over at the wave pool or the lazy river. And back on dry land, you can have a go at the bumper cars before grabbing a hot dog at the snack bar. Glass-bottomed boat tours leaving from Pefkos are another family favourite. You can explore Rhodes’ beautiful coastline while spotting colourful fish and marine life from the comfort of the deck.

If you fancy exploring the sights and sounds of Rhodes, you’ll be well placed to do so on your holidays to Pefkos. You’re only a 10-minute bus ride away from the ancient town of Lindos; this picture-perfect village is home to pretty beaches and a wealth of fascinating historic landmarks. Another popular place to visit is Symi - take a boat tour from Pefkos and you’ll reach this small Greek island with spectacular scenery.
