Things to Do in Pefkos
The activities on offer for filling an exciting day here are simply endless, but you must catch a sea cruise on one of the resort's popular glass bottomed boats along the Pefkos coast. Take the opportunity to have a drink, relax and take photographs of the stunning Lindos coastline, including the Lindos Acropolis and St Paul's Bay.
If you want to explore further afield, there are many fascinating sites of cultural and historical importance on the island. Rhodes’ Old Town is immersed in a captivating history that is a must see for lovers of history and culture; the town is one of Europe's oldest and largest inhabited medieval settlements and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Acropolis of Rhodes is also well worth a visit, offering a tantalising glimpse of ancient Greek civilisation. Here you will see the remains of the Temples of Zeus, Athena and Apollo.

The beach is lined with an array of shops and restaurants, so you can enjoy a cold beer in a beachside café or rent a sun bed and indulge in reading your favourite book. There is a range of exciting water sports activities for all the family to delight in. Pedalos, canoes, speed boats and Jet Skis are just some of the fun ways to spend a day out on the sea and why not take the water-way to Lindos for a different day trip?
