Lardos Things to Do

  • Pefkos Beach Taverna

    There are two tavernas on the beach at Pefkos - we usually went to the one on the left hand side from the beach road - the Lee Beach Taverna. Lovely place for meals or frappes - the coffee mocha nes with chunks of chocolate in were divine. Very friendly cats here who like to curl up on your knee and a wonderful place to enjoy the late afternnoon...

  • Pefkos Beach

    OK eventually after a few hiours lazing on the beach we went up to the road to walk the rest of the way into Pefkos resort itself - parts of the beach after the Sunrise hotel were quite rocky and it looked not really possible to walk all the way into Pefos by that way after all. Our tour rep had desribed Pefkos as the Tenerife of Rhodes - it...

  • Sunrise Hotel Beach - near Pefkos

    The second day here we set off to walk to Pefkos - some 4-5 km away - along the beach. By road is a bit tedious along the main road and then down another busy road which goes through Pefkos and onto to Lindos. However it was hot and by the time we got to the edge of Pefkos I was tired of passing all those sunbeds and was happy to stop at this...

  • Lardos Church

    The church in Lardos is tucked away in a quiet corner away from the bustling cafes, with its tall bell tower and half hidden by cypress trees. A quaint fountain stands in one corner of its peaceful pebbled courtyard - often a features of churches in greece.

  • Lardos Beach

    Lardos Beach was bout 500m walk from our hotel base. Other hotel complexes front the sand and shingle beach providing the usual facilities - water sports, sunbeds and food outlets for snacks. Not the best of beaches in the area but good enough if you don't want to go too far. Walking a few minutes along the beach you will find areas of he beach...

  • Lardos Village

    Lardos is a smalll village some 10km from more well known Lindos in the southern part of Rhodes Island. The village is typically greek and caters for the residents as much as the visitors with its popular cafe and bars around its village fountain - bustling by day and even more so by night.Not as large as a village as I first though but plenty of...

  • Lee Beach Taverna - Pefkos

    Great location just above Pefkos 's sandy beach. The frappes here were wonderful - in fact I got the last one of the season - a choc mocha one which was dlicious. Also enjoyed the usua filled pitta rollls - very filling. Best of all were the Baklava's with ice-cream - yummy!

    more
  • Square Bar

    The centre of Lardos village is by the village fountain and crossroads surrounded by bars and cafs. The Square bar seemed a popular place with the locals - a ggod place to people watch and enjoy a frappe.

  • Traditional Greek

    Serving greek food for over 25 years in Lardos - enjoyed a lovely meal in here. Bit more upmaket than the Kali Kardia but excellent quality and again good ambience. We both enjoyed our fillet steaks stuffed with prawns bacon an cheese - totally delicious.

    more
  • Roof Terrace Restaurant

    Old House roof terrace restaurant was another Lardos eaterie we tried and quite enjoyed. Good for ambience and views over the village square - reasonably priced menu - main courses from about 5 - 7 euros. I enjoyed my Lardos Lamb casserole with cheese on top but hubby was disappointed with his rack of ribs - more ribs than meat. Just a one off bad...

  • Good Heart

    The restaurant is just next to the small office of George' s car rental - in fact he owns the property of the restaurant. Unpretensious surroundings but we enjoyed the food so much and really good value that we atre here several times during our week. Wide choice of dishes - greek and grill specialties, the chef will happily show you the dishes in...

    freedom of the road

    by sandysmith Updated Jun 30, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Car hire is the best option for exploring southern Rhodes. Yes there are several buses a day to Lindos, via Pefkos and Rhodes Town and other main places but a car makes the best of the time and allows access to more remote places. 3 day packages seem to be the most popular and towards the end of season you could haggle for great deals.
    We booked locally in Lardos with George's car - professional friendly service and good little car. Do take the air condition car - even in October you will need it.
    Price for us was 75 euros for a smalll car for 3 days - we enjoyed the freedom so much that we extended it by a day for another 20 euros. The car was delivered to our hotel and on the last day we drove into Lardos for our evening meal and George himself drove us back to the hotel afterwards!

    Taxi's have fixed prices - for example Lindos was (10km away) was 9 euros each way - so a return trip there was almost the cost of a car per day!

Lardos Off The Beaten Path

  • Castle at Asklipeio

    After you have visited the Byzantine church at Asklipeio head up to the castle ruins above the town for superb views over the area - just follow the signposted road up. The castle has a narrow inner aprapet and ancient water tanks - its rather overgrown so watch your feet - there may even be carcases of animals in there so be warned!

  • Asklipeio

    Asklipeio was just a few kilometres down to the road yo us in Lardos so we made plans to visit here to see its main attractions; the splendid Byzantine momuments of the Church of the Dormiton of the Virgin and the castle ruins.The church dates from 1060 and as you can see from this pic has a cruciform shape. The church contained some of the best...

The tiny...

    Ok one for the men who have never grown up! On the way into Lardos village is a go-karting circuit - certainly seemed popular and even nore so at night when it was floodlit.
    Back on the main road, just before the turn off to Pefkos was the mini-golf area - also floodlit at night. Not so sure I would have like to played in semi-dark sandwhiched between two busy roads though!

    Glystra beach

    by sandysmith Updated Oct 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Glystra is a beautiful little beach with fine sand and just behind are some sand dunes and shady trees. Wish we had time to spend on this beach but there were so many others and we only had a week. I'd say it was better and mnore peaceful than Lardos Beach - although about a 40 minute road walk from our hotel base - situated just before the Lindian Villlage hotel complex.
    This view was taken from the road just above - umbrellas and beds for hire and there is food available too.
