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.

Prasonisi Beach

Waves to the right, calm sea and shelter from the wind to the left - and surfers everywhere! One of the most impressive beaches on the island, at its southernmost end. Two sandy coves ending in an island that you can reach on foot or by swimming, depending on the weather and the level of the water.

This is a paradise for surfers, especially in July and August when the -meltemia- dry north winds of the Aegean Sea set in. There are surfboards and wetsuits for hire, but most people come down to the beach with their own equipment. It's worth a visit even if you're not a surfer yourself, just to enjoy the magnificent landscape and admire the skill of the surfers. Rented rooms and tavernas are available in the area.
