Pefkos is a small village on the east coast of Rhodes
, it’s about 50km from Rhodes Town
which means it’ll take you around an hour in the car and about the same to the airport. Often referred to as Pefki, the name means pine tree in Greek.
Pefkos is an ideal place for a laid back beach holiday as the village is based around a large sandy beach and you can walk easily from most hotels in the town, to find out more about the beach go to our Pefki beach
Pefkos has a large number of hotels, apartments and villas to choose from. The same goes for restaurants with something to suit all tastes, many of which are close to the beach and have good views of the Aegean sea. There’s also a wealth of other tourist facilities like supermarkets, travel agencies to book your boat trips and vehicle hire shops too.
Also in Pefkos you’ll find a Scuba diving school where you can get up close and personal with the marine life in the area. There’s a handful of cash machines around the village and vehicle rental shops too.
