Lardos beach, Rhodes Island

The nice sandy beach of Lardos is situated at a distance of some 3 kilometers southern to the homonymous village, 7 kilometers southwestern to Lindos and 57 kilometers far from the town of Rhodes at the South.

Being close enough to Lindos and the village of Lardos, there are several alternatives for accommodation, food and drink, shopping and amusement, both in the two settlements and in the area around. The beach itself has several taverns and cafés at the sea front, where you will enjoy a refreshment and good food, mainly fresh fish.

The beach is pretty well organized and offers facilities for swimming, sunbathing (sun beds, umbrellas) and for sea sports. You will enjoy the sea and the sun very much and kids will certainly have fun in the go-kart circuit, available at the beach.

If you are tired of the sea and the sun, or if you feel like taking a drive in the area around, you have many things to see. Apart from Lindos, it is worth visiting the village of Lardos. Once at the central square of the village, take your time and enjoy a Greek coffee with a glass of cool water (the Greek way of serving coffee!), or have a glass of ouzo and chat with the friendly locals, particularly the older ones, who will tell you old stories about their village, whereas at the neighboring table a couple of friends will probably play backgammon, in the characteristic noisy way of the Greeks. And if you feel like having lunch, just choose one of the taverns of the square; all of them offer local dishes and a variety of Greek or European cooking. Finally, if you are in Lardos in the evening, it is possible to listen to a local band playing traditional music, which may result in a nice feast, with dance and abundant wine.

If you have time, it is worth visiting the ruins of the Byzantine Castle of Lardos, at a distance of some 500 meters far from the village. Only the foundation of the walls and the towers survive today. Also, you may visit the women monastery of Panaghia Ypseni, dedicated to Virgin Mary. Finally, very close to the village you may see traces of an ancient quarry of black and red stone.

For any problem, health services are available in the village of Lardos, where you may find a doctor, a dentist and a pharmacy. Lardos also offers any kind of service you might need: a hairdresser, an exchange office, department stores, rent-a-car and rent-a-bike agencies.

Access from Lardos or Lindos is easy, by taxi or by private means (car or motorbike).
