Lindos main beach – Megali Paralia
St Paul’s Bay
St Pauls Bay is a picturesque bay just south of Lindos. It is claimed that St Paul landed here in the year 51 AD to preach Christianity to the Rhodians. The small church built on the hillside is a very popular wedding location, with beautiful views of the bay and Lindos Acropolis.
An aerial view shows St Paul’s Bay as shaped like a heart and with many people falling in love (and marrying) here, it’s easy to see why. There are two beaches in the bay. The large beach in the southern end is a manmade beach with golden sand. The smaller beach at the northern end of the bay is a mix of sand and gravel. Facilities at both beaches include sun loungers and sun shades. Both the beaches have their own taverna serving fantastic fresh food (and plenty of ouzo!). Parking is possible close to the beaches. The beaches in St Paul’s Bay are relatively uncrowded and very relaxed. With rocky coves, the bay is a great place for snorkeling. You can also dive in the deep end of the bay. There are also cafe, bars and restaurants aplenty at the fascinating Lindos village, with it’s winding paths and cobbled streets.
In small taverns you will find traditional island dishes. In the old cellars of the mountain villages you will sample the same Rhodian wine which used to travel to all the shores of the southeastern Mediterranean.
Within a short distance to the hotel you will find Greek Taverns offering traditional Greek cuisine, bars and restaurants that serve international/ European cuisine, as well as quaint cafes. Some of the places around worth a visit are Gallery Cafe Bar, Mare Motto (Restaurant/Pizza), Periklis (Greek Traditional Taverna), Cocktails & Dreams Bar, Popi’s Garden Restaurant & Cocktail Bar and Happy Days Bar.
The traditional way Greeks eat out is usually by eating mezedes (appetizers in greek), that goes well with ouzo, retsina or beer, and is basically a set of appetizers with no main course, and everybody shares everything which is set at the middle of the table.
