Elli Beach (Akti Miaouli)
Elli Beach is also known as Rhodes Town Beach. Possibly the busiest and liveliest of all the island’s beaches, it has held the crown as one of Rhodes’ top beaches since the 1970s, when the jet-set first started to arrive on the island.
An ideal city beach, Elli Beach offers everything today’s beachgoer could want, from canoes and water sports options to parking, showers and food and drink. Close to a multitude of hotels, as well as Rhodes Aquarium and Casino Rodos, Elli Beach stretches for hundreds of metres along the Rhodes Town seafront to the island’s northernmost point.
Lined with layer after layer of sun loungers and umbrellas during the high season, there’s still more than enough waterline to go around even on busy days. Its shallows curve gently around a diving board, although the waters do drop off quickly. Known as the trampoline, the diving board was built in the early 1940s but still a popular spot for showing off.
Elli Beach’s eastern end is the sandiest, with small pebbles more dominant at its western end. Lifeguards are on duty throughout the day, while ramps make the water’s edge accessible for wheelchair users.
