Typical relaxed Greek village and beach with all the amenities you require for an enjoyable stay in Rhodes!
Most suitable for:
Guests looking to get away from the commercial tourist resorts and sample a bit of laid back Greek living.
If you are looking for a truly relaxing break away from it all but still have access to some lovely restaurants, tavernas and great chill-out beach bars, then Gennadi is the place for you. As you walk around the village, deciding on where to spend your evening, you will immediately start to unwind. Even in the peak season, Gennadi is never overcrowded and you will always receive a warm welcome from the locals.
Days spent on the glorious beach are just as tranquil, as you bathe in the crystal clear waters then amble up to one of the marvellous seafood tavernas right on the sand. For a truly memorable evening, pop along to one of the atmospheric beach bars, listen to some chill-out music, have a couple of drinks and soak up the eclectic environment whilst burying your feet in the sand. For keen Wind Surfers and Kite Surfers, Gennadi is a great base for spending your days on the waves of Prassonisi!
Recommendations of things to do during your stay in Gennadi:
Visit Prassonisi – Even if you are not a Wind Surfer or Kite Surfer, the Southern tip of Rhodes, known as Prassonisi is truly a sight to behold! As you arrive on the hill overlooking the beach, you will be welcomed by the spectacle of two totally different seas – one calm and one wavy – and the vibrant colours of the sails and kites on the water. A definite 'must see' in Rhodes.
Discover South West Rhodes – take a trip over to the West coast where you will be mesmerized by the spectacular beauty of the views from Monolithos Castle. Stop at Sianna to sample the delicious Olive Oil, Souma and Rhodian Honey. Just driving through this area is a joy with its breathtaking scenery!

Restaurants and bars we love in and near Gennadi:
Mama's Kitchen – Right in the middle of the village serving traditional good value Greek food. You cannot go wrong!
