• Gennadi Beach

Far from Rhodes Town, about 63 km, this is a pebble beach. Some say it’s the liveliest beach in Rhodes. The beach is a continuation of Kiotari.

Gennadi is a vast beach with enough space for all, because the beach is just partially commercialized and the rest is free for you, your friends and your beach towels.

On Sundays they have the Sunday party with DJs and at the Sundance Beach Bar attracting the young crowd from the rest of the island.
