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.

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)
