St. Paul's Bay beach

The beach of St. Paul’s Bay is located just south of Lindos. It took its name from a small church in the eastern part of the basin. The place is strikingly different from the neighboring giant. Moreover, this is not one beach, but 2, but we will tell about it later. In fact, one of the most picturesque places of the island is located here. It has an extremely convenient location. Although some holidaymakers would prefer to have a hotel right by the sea, they can forgive the absence of one there.

Beach description

This bay is not as popular as a result, it collects much less tourists. For family holidays it is an undoubted plus, but it is worth understanding that you will have to go from Lindos to the hill. Distance is big. Besides, beach alongside pebble and sandy. From all this you can get tired already on the second day, on the island the sun does not bake only at night.

On different sides, apart from each other, there are two beaches. One of them is larger, it gathers many tourists. And for those who like a secluded rest, its smaller analogue will be better, because you will lose a little from such a solution. But get what you will find in popular resorts.

What's common here is a huge amount of space for your pictures. Literally any hill, from almost any side looks beautiful. From the beach you can see the towering Acropolis of Lindos. There places for walking here. Water has emerald-greenish color. In fact, if it is easy for you to come from the village, you will get an almost perfect holiday in the format "sun, sea". There is everything you need to spend your time.

When is the best time 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.

This question is not so simple. For lazy people that is enough those restaurants and grill-houses that are present. For lovers of outdoor activities in the full sense of the word, present infrastructure is not enough good. The choice of activities will quickly be exhausted. There are no specially equipped attractions for children.

At some distance from the beach there are several hotels for every taste and budget. “Lindos Romanza Studios” is a very good option, it is located closest to the interesting for us place. From cozy rooms of the Xenones Lindos you can see the bay, and CasaLindos Theatro will offer you an unusual design in white and blue colors.
