*See bellow rating notes

Fanes is a small village of about 1000 inhabitants, about 26km from Rhodes Town. The village is about 1km inland, and has a nice large sandy beach, which is ideal for Kitesurfing and windsurfing due to the strong winds and their direction. It also has a well weather protected fishing port, which makes it the base for many fishermen, which in turn offer their fresh fish at the local tavernas.
So, you will get good local fresh fish at the restaurants of the area.

The beach is not crowded and has parts where you can have quite and peace... note though that the winds are usually strong in the area, and that you may find seaweed in the beach, a characteristic of this side of Rhodes Island. The waters though are very clean and the wind makes you feel cool at the very hot days of summer...

There is a kitesurfing / windsurfing school at the beach, its a good place to learn these action packed watersports!!
