“Clean beach, sunloungers or pebbles”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

There is a long stretch of beach at Ialyssos which is pebbles. There are plenty of sunloungers to have a more comfortable rest - the sun goes round the back of the beach rather than bouncing across the water - except at a glorious sunset. The beach dips quite a bit so best to keep kids close by; although you can walk out about 5 metres/15 feet and still have shoulders above water as an adult. Minimal waves - and a nice refreshing breeze. There is a little prom behind the car park - but it isn't somewhere for a beautiful romantic stroll or a family stroll with a pushchair. There are a handful of bars/cafes along the beach front to take a lunch at away from the heat of the early afternoon sun.

“take beach shoes”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

More often than not it's pretty windy on this side of the island so sea tends to be quite rough, ideal for windsurfers etc but not for kids, also beach very pebbly so you really need beach shoes unless your feet are tough!
Some hotels offer sun loungers and umbrellas free with All Inc deals.
Sea warm and clean but slopes quite rapidly in places.

“Nice beaches”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Ocean and the beach is always the thing for me. This time it was the same but with windsurfing it was even better! Weather and the beach is a great plus but have to give a minus for the crowded beach.

All in all very enjoyfull place!

“Lovely beach albeit pebbles are an irritant. Warm water, beautiful views.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Stunning view but on the pebble (West) side of Rhodes so minor irritant. The water is warm, clean and gentle

“Alright”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

An alright beach. Sun loungers a bit expensive (4 euros each, so 8 for a shared umbrella) and quite wavy. It might have been the fact that it was very windy when we visited though. It is also a pebbled beach. Not amazing but not bad at all.
