Rhodes: Naturism

(Ro-dos in Greek)

Naturism holidays in Rhodes are not recommended as many of the more traditional locals take offence at such activities. While topless bathing is generally accepted on most beaches, full nudity is less common. The only official nudist beach for those on Rhodes naturism holidays is in Faliraki at the southern end of the town, around 3km from the centre. The beach is signposted FKK Strand - Nudist Beach and can be found by following the road to its end, then making a right past the Muses Hotel. A gravel road then leads all the way down to beach, which has some limited parking at beach level and more spaces towards the top of the hill. The beach appears to be well supervised and relatively clean although there have been some complains of inappropriate behaviour in the past. The beach is particularly popular with gay couples.
