Beach of the town of Rhodes, or Elli Beach, Rhodes Island

The long sandy beach of the town of Rhodes is found at the most northern end of the town of Rhodes and of the island. It is one of the most popular beaches of the sand, extended all along the Casino, the Aquarium and it is situated northern to Mandraki. Many visitors give different names to parts of the beach. Thus, the part at the right of the Aquarium is known as Elli Beach, whereas other parts are named after the name in the hotel or the bar in front of which they are found.

The beach of the town of Rhodes is one of the favorite themes of photographers, both amateurs and professionals, since the British author Lawrence Darell characterized the beach as the best one in the Mediterranean. This statement of Darell was not for nothing; most of the postcards choose to present exactly this beach.

It is a very well organized beach, attracting thousands of visitors every day, locals, Greeks from all over the country, as well as foreign tourists, mainly Scandinavians. Despite the crowds, it never gets packed and offers enough space for every activity. The sea is crystal clear and usually calm and the beach is wide enough with thick sand which, at the edge of the sea, is mixed with fine pebbles. According to the condition of the sea (more or less wavy), the crowds are gathered to different parts of the beach.

You will enjoy the brilliant sun on sun beds or under the numerous multi-color umbrellas. You may choose any sea sport or play beach volley at the playground available, near the Aquarium. Or, if you like diving, you may dive from the small diving board within the sea.

If you feel a little dizzy from the sun, or tired from the sea (is it possible??!!), or you just feel like drinking something cool and fresh, the numerous bars and cafés of the beach, will offer you many alternatives. Also, you may walk along the beach, loafing about and enjoying the colors, the noise, the sun and the sea.

As it is only a few hundred meters far from the center of the medieval town and the port, it is not worth to use your car, especially if you stay in town. You may access the beach on foot, by bus, and by taxi .
