The basics

Driving tours and shore excursions of Rhodes and Lindos typically visit St. Paul’s Bay, which is set beneath Lindos’ whitewashed houses. Lindos is overlooked by an ancient acropolis and has an atmospheric tangle of steep medieval streets. The bay’s azure waters are almost completely enclosed by craggy cliffs and backed by bougainvillea, while a tiny, whitewashed chapel sits at one corner of the cove and serves as one of the town’s favorite wedding venues.

When to get there

This stretch of coastline virtually shuts down in winter, but in summer it’s a popular destination; space on the beach can sometimes be at a premium. Arrive in the morning to secure your spot and enjoy the water before temperatures soar at midday.

Discovering the Highlights of Lindos

With its ancient acropolis and scenic setting above the bay, Lindos is considered one of the most beautiful towns on the island of Rhodes. The warren of narrow lanes are lined with former homes that now house tavernas, shops, and cafés. The acropolis above town commands one of the finest views on Rhodes, while three beaches—Lindos Beach, Pallas Beach, and St. Paul’s Bay—prove ideal for swimming and relaxing.
