The beautiful sandy beaches of Lardos, winner of the European Blue Flag Small Pebble & Sandy Beach Award, are known as some of the best beaches on the island. Crystal clear waters, and gently rolling surf make for an idyllic atmosphere for fun in the sun, or relaxing on the many sun beds under the shade of an umbrella. Also, there are many Tavernas along the beach where you can get a chilled drink or a quick snack while you soak up the sun. Alternatively, there are a wide range of water sports to choose from, and even a go-kart track for fast, but safe, fun for the whole family.
The nice sandy beach of Lardos is situated at a distance of some 3 kilometers southern to the homonymous village, 7 kilometers southwestern to Lindos and 57 kilometers far from the town of Rhodes at the South.
Being close enough to Lindos and the village of Lardos, there are several alternatives for accommodation, food and drink, shopping and amusement, both in the two settlements and in the area around. The beach itself has several taverns and cafés at the sea front, where you will enjoy a refreshment and good food, mainly fresh fish.
The beach is pretty well organized and offers facilities for swimming, sunbathing (sun beds, umbrellas) and for sea sports. You will enjoy the sea and the sun very much and kids will certainly have fun in the go-kart circuit, available at the beach.
If you are tired of the sea and the sun, or if you feel like taking a drive in the area around, you have many things to see. Apart from Lindos, it is worth visiting the village of Lardos. Once at the central square of the village, take your time and enjoy a Greek coffee with a glass of cool water (the Greek way of serving coffee!), or have a glass of ouzo and chat with the friendly locals, particularly the older ones, who will tell you old stories about their village, whereas at the neighboring table a couple of friends will probably play backgammon, in the characteristic noisy way of the Greeks. And if you feel like having lunch, just choose one of the taverns of the square; all of them offer local dishes and a variety of Greek or European cooking. Finally, if you are in Lardos in the evening, it is possible to listen to a local band playing traditional music, which may result in a nice feast, with dance and abundant wine.
