Enjoy a slice of Greek village life with a holiday to Pefkos. Nestled on the southeastern coast of Rhodes, Pefkos is known for its glorious sunshine, crystal clear waters and delicious local cuisine. Pefkos is the perfect place to stay for those wanting to avoid the crowds of Lindos and Rhodes Old Town, while still experiencing the island’s famous Rhodesian charm.
Pefkos, translated as pine tree, is typically less busy than its neighbouring resorts and welcomes holidaymakers who are looking to lie back and relax on the sloping sandy beaches overlooked by the pine trees from which it gets its name. You’ll even find locals love Pefkos’ chilled out vibes as many Rhodesians choose to venture to the village for some R&R between seasons.
Whether you’re in search of an all-inclusive resort or prefer the flexibility of a self-catering apartment, we can help build your perfect holiday to Pefkos. The picturesque resort town is known for its laid back attitude and café culture and the nightlife reflects that. Kick back and relax with a glass of local wine overlooking the shores or grab your dancing shoes and try your hand at traditional Greek dancing at one of the village’s many local tavernas.
While everyone is bound to have an amazing holiday in Pefkos, the town is ideal for those who are keen to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. Enjoy life in the slow lane in Pefkos and treat yourself to the relaxing week or two that you deserve.
Although it would be easy to spend every day lazing on the beach sipping ice-cold beers, there’s always something to do in Pefkos.
Pefkos is a great base for exploring the rest of the island. Book a trip to Rhodes Town and experience the city’s old town. Once you’ve seen the historic sites of the island’s capital, take a pew outside of one of Rhodes Old Town’s many incredible restaurants and tuck into a plate of delicious local cuisine.
It wouldn’t be a trip to Pefkos without a day trip or two to Lindos. Home of the famous Acropolis, history lovers will be in awe of the town’s iconic sights. A short climb up the hill will bring you to the Acropolis itself. With parts dating back to 300BC, this archaeological site has to be seen to be believed. From the structure, you can enjoy glorious panoramic views of Lindos, St Paul’s Bay and beyond.
In typical Mediterranean style, many of the best activities involve local food and drink. Feast on traditional lamb kleftiko or chicken souvlaki at a family-run taverna and explore first-hand the word-famous Greek hospitality. Many restaurants run dedicated “Greek Nights” complete with dancing, plate-smashing and more food and wine than you can ever imagine.
If you’re on a self-catering holiday to Pefkos then pop to one of the town’s many mini markets and fill your basket with delicious fresh produce, including ripe tomatoes, juicy olives and fresh-caught fish. Try your hand at cooking local dishes or knock together old favourites that the family will love.
