The long and large sandy beach of Prassonisi lies 85 south of Rhodes Town and 40 km south west of Lindos village. Prassonissi is known as a windsurfing paradise for many lovers of this sport. Particularly during the months of July and August, when the north winds called meltemi are blowing, the beach is crowded and every day you will enjoy skillful windsurfers.
The beach consists of two sandy coves which both of them end in a rocky island that can be either reached on foot or swimming, depending on the level of the waters. Windsurfing equipments are available for rent, even if most surfers bring their own material. Taverns and rooms for rent can be found close to the beach. The landscape is idyllic and the waters amazingly crystalline.
