Nice port visit from cruise ship

Written by Rodney T W
When I went up on deck of the Costa Concordia early in the morning to get a look at Rhodes, I was surprised to see the walls, turrets and castle around the city. It had a Disneyland-look I didn't expect. For a cruise

Afandou Beach

Families with ice-boxes and folding chairs, couples with tents, Brits with their hot dogs and beers at the canteen, young people racing their jet-skis, locals coming down to Avanti for fish. There's ample room for them all on the huge beach at Afandou, and no one feels crowded. A sandy beach with some pebbles, and sea that deepens quite abruptly.

Some sections of the beach are commercially organised. Among the foreigners this is a favourite spot with Brits and Germans. There is a small number of small restaurants, beach sports centres and fish tavern's. On the coast road you will also find the Rhodes golf course. A small train and a bus service connect the beach to the village of Afandou. (18.5 km from Rhodes town)
