I’ve always loved this beach, we’ve been to Rhodes many times, but this visit wasn’t as enjoyable as previous, there is a REAL fly problem, they’re everywhere, we hadn’t seen a fly for 10 days before we came here! The restaurant is a gorgeous setting, friendly staff, nice music and very tasty food but constantly batting flies away as you eat (and sunbathe) is no fun. Also only one toilet which was very unclean. Only given it a 4 because of the lovely food, overall experience more like a 3 this year.
The water is also usually like a mill pond but very churned up and murky at the moment so no good for snorkelling.
Also the sun beds have gone up to 15 euros EACH which is just too much in our opinion.
We went to Kallithea springs where you get the same comfy bed for 10 euros and believe it or not that price includes an 800ml bottle of water AND another drink such as a bottle of beer or iced coffee. We wish we’d gone back there tbh as the snorkelling is also amazing - we had fish eating bread rolls out of our hands!

I saw this from the Lindos Acropolis and found it by walking through the village. There are a few signs but got lost in the maze of little streets,found it by heading downwards! It is a circular little Bay with tiny beaches on either side. It is where boat tours leave so there are boats coming in and out all day. Near the little beach on the northern side there is a small cafe and a few loungers. The space is tiny but there are rocks to sit on as well. the water was clear near the beach and shallow but deepened further out.if swimming be careful of the boats. There is a portacabin toilet which is locked but the key is held at the cafe. Nice to spend some time here cooling the feet after walking round the Acropolis but it might be better to go to the other bigger beach if you want to spend the day swimming and sunbathing as the beaches are really small and not much space

In my opinion, St. Paul's beach is the best of the two beaches of Lindos (the other being Pallas beach). It's cleaner and more beautiful (Pallas beach is nice but we saw areas with dirty water so maybe sewage is responsible for this). St. Paul's beach is 'devided' on the left and right side. Right part is bigger and requires a few more minutes to reach on foot from the city as it's further where the little church of St. Paul is located. Left side is just 3 minutes from the city. Both sides are organised. The most important thing and a huge advice is to go as early as possible if you want to get a sun bed and umbrella. Be there at 10.00am the latest as the place gets packed fast. Especially the left side of the beach. We spent our beach moments on the left side just below the beach bar with sun beds and umbrella in front of the trees which was offering more shadow! The setting is beautiful and feels like you are laying by a natural swimming pool as the rocks embrace the beach making it almost an 'enclosed' sort of 'private' pool. The only annoying thing is that because of the crowds and the enclosed space, the water is packed with people. Demetris, the guy responsible for the sun beds and umbrellas is very friendly and will try to help you spotting available sun beds for you!

Absolutely stunning bay with beautiful clear water (when we visited) and quite a few fish.

There is one restaurant by the beach which is not cheap, would say moderately priced.

Only the toilet in the restaurant was open in the whole bay which was pretty concerning.

Sun beds were VERY expensive at 15 Euros EACH which weren’t even near the sea! A few people refused to pay and actually left. It’s quite a long walk down to the bay but if it hadn’t been we may have also refused. There isn’t anywhere else to sit on the beach so if you don’t pay for the beds then it’s a wasted journey!

This beach boasts more than just crystal clear waters; it’s also so calm, with barely a ripple of waves. It’s fantastic for a relaxing swim and just enjoying floating around in the sea. Whilst doing so, you’ll get a great view of the acropolis too.

The only thing which detracts from a 5* review is the fact that almost the entire shoreline is taken up with sun beds for hire. There’s very little space at all to leave belongings if you’re not interested in hiring one. Being so popular and small, it also means the small spaces which are available are often going to be taken too. We had to leave our stuff up on the pier.

Certainly a must-visit beach when visiting Rhodes though.

Visited the beach on St Paul’s Bay many times before and always enjoyed the fantastic setting and its small taverna for a relaxed lunch.
This year the beach has been invaded by dozens of oversized four-poster bed style sun loungers that now completely dominate what was a picturesque corner of Lindos. Not have they only spoilt an otherwise beautiful beach their daily fees are eye watering. The standard sub loungers last year were €12 for two. This year they are €25. The four posters €60!
This used to be our go to beach during our many holidays in Lindos. Now, I shall be considering holidaying elsewhere ☹️

This beach is so beautiful and unique! You can pay for sunbeds or go with your own umbrella. There is a small cantine if you want to buy Coffee or Water. The waters are so clear but you step onto Stones so be aware of that. All in all is very nice and quiet!

Stunning little bay for snorkelling with paid for sun loungers that are more on the expensive side and you should definitely look to book to avoid disappointment, but well worth the trip and the money. 10 euros per sun lounger or 50 for a bed. But the water is amazing. So much marine life to see and varied too as you have the open ocean only a break in the rocks away. The beds are waited on so you can get drinks and snacks delivered to your lounger. The bay is busy with boats tho, so be careful when snorkelling and stick to the rocks, but in my 6 days in the island this was one of my favourites.

The beach is very small but we ended up being in the water the whole time. Take your snorkel with you if you are on a day trip (I did not take mine and regretted it). There is also a kiosk offering food, ice cream and drinks (take cash as their card machine signal is bad).

The walk down to the bay is scenic, and the bay is truly STUNNING. The sunbeds in the little ledges all spaces out so ya have a bit of privacy, the sand and waters are beautiful. It is rocky tho so be careful and as long as you are careful it all adds to the charm and character. Its like another world, with its dramatic rock edges and calm water... defiantly worth a visit.
