St. Paul’s Bay

Shallow, calm, crystal clear water makes this an ideal spot for swimming and for families traveling with little ones. The picturesque strip of sand is located in a little cove sheltered from the wind by surrounding cliffs and backed by colorful bougainvilleas. St. Paul’s Bay is a smaller and quieter beach on the island of Rhodes where you can rent one of the many lounge chairs or have a drink at the café at the edge of the sand. This gorgeous beach also has a special history as it is said to be the spot where St. Paul first landed when he came to Rhodes to try and convert locals into Christianity.

Getting There

St. Paul’s Bay is located on the southeast coast of Rhodes just south of the whitewashed town Lindos. From Lindos, you can walk to the beach. Rhodes has an international airport with many seasonal flights from European cities and a year around flight from Athens. North Americans can travel to Rhodes from Winnipeg, Victoria, Vancouver, Thompson and most other popular cities.
