Diving opportunities are the jewel in the crown of Pefkos holidays, and anyone who loves to explore underwater will be delighted by what's on offer. Take to the Med to peek and poke into rocky hiding places below the service, where all manner of weird and wonderful sea creatures await. You might even spot a school of stingrays in the Pefkos waters, during a magical look into a mysterious world.
The ultimate sleepy Greek island destination, Pefkos is the place for you if relaxation and tranquillity are what you want from your holiday.

A mere stones throw from Pefkos you have the charming village of Lindos, where the gleaming white buildings are seemingly stacked on top of one another, looking out to sea from their hillside position. The Lindos Acropolis is a popular sight for those with an interest in archaeology. Wander the ruins taking in crumbling Temple of Athena and the views from the top of the hill out to sea. It's quite a climb to reach the top but more than worth it.
Just an hour from Pefkos is the cultural and historical hub of Rhodes Town. Explore the old town, making sure to stop at the pretty walled Socratous Garden in the centre and swim while looking across to Turkey at Elli Beach.
