Prasonisi beach, Rhodes Island

Prassonissi is the last edge of Rhodes at the very South and is found at a distance of 95 kilometers southern to the town of Rhodes and 12 kilometers far from the inland village of Kattavia, also to the South. It is a strange place: in winter it is a small islet, but in summer you will see a small peninsula. How does it happen? Very simple! The islet is connected with the rest of the island with a narrow strip of sandy land, which in winter is totally covered by the sea waves!

Either an islet or a peninsula, Prassonissi is the meeting point of the fans of windsurfing. With the small coves in either side, it always has a beach with rough sea and another one with calm. The choice is up to you!

The area offers accommodation facilities and food and drink is possible at the sea front fish taverns and cafés.

The beach is long and sandy on both sides of the 500-meters-long strip of land connecting Rhodes with Prassonissi. As the wind is different in the two coves, you may do windsurfing with any weather. The fans of the sport have two characteristic terms to discern the beaches: there is the “wave” beach and the “flat” one.

At the “wave” side the waves are usually of a height of 1-2 meters and of stable direction; on the “good days” (for surfers) the waves are 2-3 meters high, whereas in the “very good days”, the waves are more than 4 meters high.

At the “flat” side there are always small waves, making it ideal for slaloms and for “free style” windsurfing, as well as for the beginners and intermediate surfers. For all these reasons, whatever the weather is, the place is always crowded enough.

The characteristic of Prassonissi in what concerns the winds is that, there is wind here (up to 4-5 Bauforts), when the sea in the rest of the Aegean Sea is dead calm, whereas half of the beach is relatively calm, when there are gale force winds in the Aegean.

Access to the “islet” depends on your mood and on the mood of …the sea: either you go on foot, or you swim.

From the town of Rhodes you will arrive here by rented or private car or motorbikes via the small village of Kattavia. You will park your vehicle at the end of the road at the huge “natural” parking and then you will forget about it, as you will feel like staying always it this place!
