    This wonderful little Church is situated not far from the main square in Afandou, just up a lane to the rear of the petrol station. As with all Churches in this area, the walls are adorned with wonderful fresco's with wonderful terracotta roof tiles which make a stark contrast to the bright white washed exterior walls. Most of the Churches were open for us to have a look around. It is customary for those entering Churches in Rhodes to remove headwear and cover shoulders.

    Afandou has a fantastic beach, the wonderful clear waters of the Mediterranean sea lap its' shores. It is a pebble beach with safe waters for swimming. There are sunbeds for hire on certain sections of the beach and plenty of space if you yearn for some peace and quiet far from the madding crowd. There are some lovely beachside cafe's alongside the beach together with some nice looking fish restaurants at the southern end. The land train from the village of Afandou stops at various places along the promenade & is well used by beachgoers as an inexpensive way of getting to and from the beach.

    This is a great little Pizza place situated just around the corner from the Village square in Afandou. The Pizza's are delicious and are very good value for money. The Pizza's are prepared and cooked right before your eyes & if you're lucky you will catch the chef tossing the dough into the air before he puts on the final touches before they go into the great open air oven.

    The Life Garden is a lovely spacious restaurant just a stroll away from Afandou village square. It has a great seating area set in the garden, this is partly covered in the unlikely event of rain. We decided to go here for the last night of our holiday & were not disappointed. The food was lovely, service was swift and the waiters were really friendly. For starters we had Calimari, Tsatsziki, and Garlic bread. For main course I had Souvetsi and Gareth had Stifado. The meals were delicious although the best thing was the bill which was very inexpensive indeed.

    Favorite Dish: The Calimari was delicious.

    The Neon bar is situated just off the main square in Afandou Village (to the right of the town hall). The staff here are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We called in for some drinks on several occasions during our stay in Afandou. I have not eaten here myself but have been told that the food is very nice, especially the Crepes.

    We called in here for a drink while exploring the whitewashed streets of Afandou. This is a great little bar with some lovely decorative wall paintings of the Greek Gods on the walls. It was quite quiet when we called in but it would probably get a lot busier later in the evening or on the weekends.

    The Sky Line Cafe, Bar and Restaurant sits in an elevated position giving some spectacular views of Afandou Village to the mountains beyond. There is a great patio area where you can sit and enjoy a drink or take a meal whilst enjoying one of the best views ever.

    There is a lovely little land train which takes you on a fabulous journey around Afandou. It starts and ends at the Village square, right next to the Church tower. The journey lasts about 40 minutes and can transport you to the beach area or drop you off near your hotel if you are staying nearby. It is great value for money at 2 Euro's per trip. It is an extremely popular mode of transport as it can be used as a pleasure ride to take in the great scenery en route or as a way of getting around Afandou.
