Pefki Beach (Pefkos)

Pefki Beach - Greece
© charcoal soul

Stretching for approximately half a kilometre, Pefki (or Pefkos) Beach is a mix of sand a deep orange colour and pebbles. It’s narrower than other beaches on the east coast of the island, but its length ensures there’s still a good number of sun loungers and umbrellas on offer.

For swimming, head to the far end of the beach, where there are sheltered rocky coves with the shallowest water. Otherwise, stick to the main area of Pefki Beach, which is lined with a choice of tavernas selling drinks and freshly-prepared seafood dishes.

Pefki Beach is easily accessible from destinations including Rhodes Town by taxi, car, and a bus which operates roughly half hourly. All the same, the beach has a quieter vibe than many on this stretch of coastline. This is largely due to the lack of large hotels fronting the Pekfi waterfront.

Despite this, visitors will find a good range of facilities, including toilets, public showers and parking. Activities include snorkelling and water sports such as canoe rentals.
