Glyfada Beach (or Glifada) is a pebbly to rocky beach surrounded by rocks and dense forests. The surrounding pine trees also lend a special greenish tinge to the sea as they are reflected in it. However, the rocks make it more difficult to enter the sea and water shoes are therefore recommended for swimming. In general, Glyfada Beach is more suitable for walking and exploring the wild nature of Rhodes than for sunbathing and swimming. There is often also a strong wind blowing here, which sometimes blows in seaweed. However, due to the isolated nature of the place, you can certainly enjoy some privacy and contemplation.

Glyfada Beach is purely natural and is not equipped with sunbeds or umbrellas. However, there are two tavernas near the beach where you can relax and refresh yourself with a small snack or a cold drink.

Glyfada is situated in the wild nature at the west coast of Rhodes, near the villages of Monolithos and Siana. Glyfada is a secluded beach and there are no major resorts or tourist attractions nearby. However, if you are staying in this part of the island, be sure to visit Glyfada Beach. If you drive north from Monolithos towards the capital city of Rhodes, turn left at the village of Siana and it's about 6 km to the coast from there.
