Plakia Beach is Pefkos village’s other main beach, along with the central Lee Beach. It is an easy ten minute walk away from the village centre along the main road heading to Lardos. In some ways it is a nicer beach than Lee Beach as it is wider with clean, light sand and the sea a little clearer. It is usually less busy and crowded too. The sea is usually crystal clear and calm and sandy underfoot with few rocks and stones. True, there are few eating, drinking and shopping opportunities in the immediate vicinity but that is more than made up for by the Kantina Blue Waves, situated directly on the beach. Managed by three generations of family, it offers a limited menu of drinks, snacks and light meals, all at very reasonable prices. All dishes are well presented, of more than ample portions, freshly made and delicious. It is a great place to relax, while still having the sand under your feet and enjoying good food and drink with a view of the beach.
Sun loungers with fixed parasols are available on the beach. As of summer 2021, they charged 10€ for two.
Recommended for a quiet and relaxed day at the beach.

My apartments was 5 minutes walk over some rocks and sand to reach this beach but well worth it. The beach is sandy with a few pebbles when you get in the sea and the water gets deep quite quickly but very clear . There are loungers and umbrellas for rent here and a small snack bar selling burgers and sandwiches right on the beach.the toilet there was clean it was excellent for swimming,got deep quite quickly with sandy bottom and warm clear water. It wasn't busy when I visited but I think that was due to the Covid19 situation being that the whole resort was not as busy as usual. Definitely would go there again if I visit Rhodes in the future and Pefkos is a great little resort with everything you need in it and good transport links

The best in my opinion and quietest beach around Pefkos.
I was on my own and had a sun lounger and umbrella and paid 5 euros.
There is a shower on the beach and also the local beach Taverna that supplies lovely home cooked food.
There is a public toilet just to the left of the taverna which is very clean and well maintained.
The beach is mainly sand with some pebbles so best to wear beach shoes when entering the sea.
A very good place to chill out

Ok sandy beach with around 50 sun umbrellas, each with two loungers, set out in two rows. An umbrella and two loungers is 10 euros for the day. There is a shower on the beach, plus a close at hand cafe for snacks and drinks. Coffee is 2.50 euros and a reasonable (and large) greek salad 7 euros. Quieter than the main Pefkos beach, with parking on the beach accessed off the main road and down a short stoney track.

We've been coming to Pefkos and using this beech for over 15 years.
Its marvellous and no matter where we stay or try in this area of Rhodes we always make our way back here.
For reasons that are blatantly obvious as you walk down the path to it.......
the views, plus the sandy beech and of course the crystal clear waters.
The sunbeds are 'covid friendly' spread out so no issues there and the Kantina has removed some of its tables for the same reason to help with social distancing.
It is frequented by the locals which speaks volumes.
The kantina serves excellent food all made on the premises and nice and fresh. it is a family run business and they all work together to make a very successful business. I would recommend the tuna salad, but leave e plenty of room....
all in all another little gem...

We love this beach, water is shallow and good for snorkelling. The beach taverna food was very good value for money.

Although we had a beach just down the street from our hotel we decided to check out this beach which was a 15 min. walk from our place. We are glad we got go go because it is a very nice and quiet beach. It was not crowded and it was a great location just to sit back and relax. There's a simple restaurant/bar just at the end of the beach which makes it very convenient.
