Lindos Beach
Rhodes island
  • Beach berm:
    Sand
  • Seafloor:
    Sand
  • Water rating: 4/5 about
  • Access:
    Fair = Accessible by car, poor road condition There is a road to get near it, but if you are coming from Lindos town, there is a long foot path you have to take down (and then up) the steep hill. Donkey opereators will insist that you should rent a donkey, but do check the price before you commit because it's not cheap.
  • Amenities:
    Restaurant at the beach
    Bar or cafeteria at the beach
    Organized Beach (trash collection, umbrellas, showers etc.)
    Hotel on the beach
  • RV / Camper Accessibility:
    Site is unsuitable for RV parking, but you can use the municipal parking lot and
    walk to the beach.
  • Snorkeling:
    Good snorkeling site
  • Notes:
    Lindos has three very popular beaches within walking distance from the town. The beaches tend to get very crowded and they are packed with sun beds and parasols for rent. The scenery is beautiful, the sea crisp and clean, and only it's crowded nature prevent us from rating Lindos beach higher than 3. If you don't mind the crowds, and if you find yourself in Lindos for the beautiful village or the spectacular ancient acropolis, the beaches are a good place to hang out for the day.

    As mentioned above, walking down to the beach is a pleasant affair, but the ascent back up the hill towards the town can be dificult. There are donkey's that can make the climb up a bit less taxing for a high fee.
RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
