Prasonisi Beach forms a narrow strip of sand at the southernmost tip of Rhodes which connects to the Prasonisi Peninsula. Occasionally visited by loggerhead turtles, Prasonisi Beach extends to around three kilometres in total, with arms of the Mediterranean lapping it on both sides.
To the east side of this double-edged beach there are calm shallow waters ideal for a paddle with the kids. This section also has a small area of sun loungers and umbrellas.
On the other side, there are often roaring crosshore winds which have made Prasonisi Beach a top destination for windsurfers and kite surfers worldwide. This is particularly true during the months of July and August, when the meltemi northern wind blows. Nor do adrenaline junkies have to drag their own gear to Prasonisi Beach, with numerous equipment rentals and surf schools onsite.
There are also several cafes and restaurants close to Prasonisi Beach, alongside a mini-market, and public parking.
