Afandou lies around 20km South of Rhodes Town and 30km South of the airport, on the Eastern coast of Rhodes. The resort is favoured by independent travellers and mostly offers basic hotels and apartments. Afandou is still a very peaceful, traditional area which is slowly being developed. The beach is stony and quite a distance from the village. There is an 18 hole golf course nearby and a few restaurants and bars in the centre, but amenities are rather limited.
