Reasons for trip

We decided to go for a drive to the southern most part of Rhodes, whatever is to be found there isn't to be found in our guide book (Rhodes apparently stops at Lardos). The journey from Pefkos took about an hour passing a couple of obviously purpose built holiday resorts. We took a side road signposted Prasonissi, it was a well surfaced road but very twisty and uphill most of the way and on the roadside there were several fire warnings. Finally we reached the crest of a hill and there below us was Prasonisi. This is where 2 seas meet – the Aegean and the Med – a narrow causeway crosses the seas to a small mound, possibly an island some of the time. There was free parking on the beach which you reach by passing between 2 competing tavernas – the staff of these wave hello to each car. We had a little walk to the shore(s) to see if we could paddle in both (we couldn't) and then spent a little time watching the many surfers, paragliders and kite flyers. A lot of the beach was full of campervans etc that were obviously there for a long time not a day trip. We walked back towards the tavernas and stopped at one (Lighthouse – the other was called Oasis) for a coffee, then a quick walk round the immediate area which revealed 2 holiday shops and some holiday accommodation. This was a very pretty place and well worth the journey but I'm not sure I would like to holiday here.
