Ialissos, Overall a good family destination

Written by Bryan
We stayed in Ialissos. If I were on my honeymoon or single, I would choose another island (or perhaps I would choose another part of Rhodes), but for a family with small children, or a wind/kite surfer, or people who don't want to be in a total party spot, Ialissos works just fine.

Windsurfing & Kitesurfing

Windsurfing is one of the most popular water sports in Rhodes and generally in Dodecanese.  If you are a novice, most of the schools renting equipment also give lessons.

Kitesurfing on the other hand is becoming more and more popular in Rhodes every year.  Windsurfing & Kitesurfing equipment , which are usually rented by the hour can be found on all the popular beaches, such as Faliraki, Ixia, Afandou, Tsabika Beach, Kolymbia, Lindos and even in the city of Rhodes itself.

The East coast, with its calmer waters might be more suitable for beginners, but experienced windsurfers will be sure to find the waves of the West coast an exciting challenge and for the more adventurous types Prassonisi which is better known as 'Surfer's Paradise'.
