The village of Malona has a good restaurant, a bakery, three small bars, a post-office, four mini markets and an English speaking pharmacist.So why not take a gentle stroll through the back streets and enjoy a lovely evening eating local food and meeting the friendly locals.
Your nearest resort if Haraki Bay, just 4 km from the village. Park your car in the square and take a gentle stroll past the church and wander along the pedestrian only promenade along the beautiful horseshoe bay with crystal clear waters and dramatic back drop of the Pheraklos Castle ruins, even more spectacular when lit up at night. Visit one of the friendly, family run restaurants or laid back tavernas for drinks or a superb meal and during the day chill out on the beach where umbrellas and beds are available.
Also 4 km from the village to the west of Haraki Bay are the beautiful golden sands of Agathi beach with warm, shallow and crystal clear sea which is ideal for snorkelling and provides safe swimming for all the family. The beach is backed by mountains and sand dunes giving a stunning backdrop to your relaxing day on the beach. Sun beds and parasols are available to rent and there's a selection of 3 licensed tavernas serving a variety of refreshments from cold drinks to three course meals.
Other resorts nearby include Lindos and St Paul's Bay, only 10 minutes drive away, or you could visit Tsambika beach, a long sandy beach with numerous tavernas and water sports, a 15 minute drive from the village. While there why not visit Tsambika Monastry, not for the faint hearted at 300 m but persevere up the 350 steps and you will be rewarded with stunning views out to sea and to the north and South of the island.
We can provide you with an introductory tour of the village and nearby resort free of charge and there are a selection of guide books, information and maps provided for your convenience.
We would recommend a car although this is not essential as there is a regular bus service rough the village linking with Rhodes town and Lindos and the various resorts in between.
Less than 60 minute drive from the village you will find yourself in Rhodes Town on the northern tip of the island exploring the old town with hassle free shopping, friendly traditional tavernas, ancient battlements and modern marina, or catching the meeting of the the calm Mediterranean Sea and stormy Aegean Sea at the southern tip of the Island at Prassonisi, a surfers paradise, or wine tasting on the western slopes of the Mount Attaviros.
Malona makes an ideal base for hiking and cycling, take a wander through the peaceful olive tracks or try spotting honey buzzards along the quiet mountain roads. The perfect place to unwind and relax.
