Prasonisi beaches

Prasonisi is a small islet that during low tide becomes a peninsula attached to the southern tip of Rhodes. It is located some 90 kilometres south of Rhodes town.

The beaches
Like the islet, the two beaches are named Prasonisi. Both are situated in a breathtaking scenery with views to the Aegean Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and spectacular mountains.


Prasonisi is often very windy on the west side, while sheltered on the east. Consequently, experienced windsurfers make use of the windy conditions on the western side, while rather inexperienced windsurfers and sunbathers enjoy the eastern side.

Both beaches benefit from fine sand and very shallow water, especially close to the islet. The eastern beach has sections with sun beds and parasols. Parking is possible close to the beach.

Prasonisi resort
Prasonisi can’t be described as a resort, although you will find a few hotels and rooms to let. The most popular hotel is the Oasis Hotel Prasonisi.

The closest villages are Kattavia and Lachania, both very small traditional Greek villages.
