2 sunbeds and an umbrella cost 8 euros, there are lots of sunbeds and they're not too close together. There're lots of people selling bracelets, sunglasses, drinks, doughnuts, fruit salads, massages etc. Unless you want to buy something, don't make eye contact! Otherwise they will...More

I think Elli is the nicest of the two city beaches (The Windy Beach is the other). You have the city streets very close so there is no need to buy drinks or ice-cream/fruit at the beach...when you can get it you self, walking distance.

Beautiful clear water with an on shore current when we swam in it. The pebbles can be hard on the feet so some swim footwear would make it a better experience!

Place with a lot of lounge beds to rent, and enough cantina’s. Sea and beach not a very safe choice for young children. Swimming shoes advisable. Showers on the beach. Nice enough to combine a dip which a visit to town.

Although this beach is stony, it is popular because it is close to the main town. There are plenty of sun umbrellas available. Although the diving platform is frequently climbed, only about 1 in 15 climbers then proceed to jump/dive into the sea. I don't...More

Stoney beach, very steep going into water, not suitable for children. You just walk 10 foot into water and its over your head. Beach shoes needed as stones hurt your feet. For snorkeling it good. Vendors sell fruit and drinks on beach.

Visited here just before heading home, which was a shame as we'd been on the beach 5 mins away and it was so much more windy there! Elli Beach is bigger and quieter in terms of shouty people! Walking distance to food places or you...More

This is stone beach. Enter to the water is fine but deep water started in maybe 2 meters. There is good tower for jumping. You can choose 3 options of high for jump. Jumping here is funny. Try it!

Not the Greek island beach we were hoping for, fortunately not the only reason we went to Rhodes. There might be better beaches elsewhere, but this was one we could walk to.

Hello This is right next to mandrake marina. The taxi from Old town to beach entrance is 5 euros. For food definitely Fotis. Good food and environment. Enjoy !
