Prasonissi beach

Prasonisi Cape is located in the southern part of Rhodes Island, on the border of the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. You can see the Aegean and the Mediterranean Sea from Prasonisi Cape. The first is dark blue, the second has pale turquoise shades.

Beach description

It has the following peculiarities:

  • lightly manned;
  • ideal surfing conditions (strong wind and plenty of free space);
  • an old lighthouse building, stone buildings of the last century and other attractions.

Two buses run from Rhodes to Prassonissi twice a day from the company KTEL. The road takes about 3 hours and costs from 10 euros. A more expensive and convenient way to visit the cape is to rent a private vehicle (preferably an off-road vehicle).

Cape Prassonissi is popular with local and visiting surfers. On its territory there are schools for beginners and rental equipment centers. The western part of the beach (Aegean Sea) is distinguished by high waves and cold water. The eastern part (Mediterranean Sea) is more calm and warm.

IN winter, Cape Prassonissi turns into an island due to an increase in the water level. The sandy beach is formed in a warm period of the year due to the ebb. Its length is about 500 meters and its width is about 100 meters.

When is it better to go?

Greece - a country with a long length from north to south, so the recommendations will vary depending on the place where you are going. The holiday season  begins in May and reaches a peak in July-August: there are too many tourists, and the temperature on the southern islands reaches 40 degrees, which may still not play a role on the beach, but certainly not suitable for sightseeing. So the best time to relax in Greece is the end of spring-beginning of summer or September-October.
