The Acropolis

This spectacular building sits proudly almost 400 feet above the village. It can be reached on foot or by donkey and inside you’ll find ancient ruins, the sanctuary of Athena and the church of St John.

St Paul’s Bay

This is a beautiful, small rocky bay south of Lindos town. The water is clear and calm, making St Paul’s bay an ideal place for swimming and snorkelling. There are two beaches and a small family run café overlooking the bay.

Lindos Glass Bottom Boat Trip

The calm, crystal clear waters around Lindos are ideal for a glass bottom boat trip and it’s also a great opportunity to explore other nearby islands where the beaches are less busy.

Eating Out

Lindos caters for all tastes with its huge variety of restaurants and Greek tavernas, serving everything from kebabs to freshly caught seafood. Moussaka is a popular dish on the island and the local wines can be very pleasant and offer good value.
