With beautiful landscapes, a relaxed atmosphere and sandy beaches, Pefkos holidays strike the perfect balance between an active getaway and a chilled-out break by the sea. Meaning ‘pine trees’ in Greek, Pefkos – also known as Pefki – is on the eastern coast of Rhodes and boasts rugged mountain landscapes and ocean views.
A quiet part of Rhodes, Pefkos provides seclusion as well as all the facilities you need with shops, bars, cafés and restaurants. Its slower pace of life makes Pefkos ideal for visitors who’d like to take it easy. Meanwhile for those looking to get active, cycling, walking and rock climbing are all popular in the resort, plus the lively town of Lindos is close by. So whether you want a sporty time, a sunkissed beach vacation or a mixture of both, holidays to Pefkos are sure to have just the thing for you.
