Life's a beach
Down a winding street lined with almond and lemon trees you’ll come to the reason everyone wants to visit Stegna during Rhodes holidays – the beach. Secluded and unspoilt, it’s free from noisy crowds and is the ideal tranquil location for you to get your tan on. Colourful sunloungers and parasols are available to hire, or you can just stretch out on your own beach towel – there’s plenty of room.
If you’re up for some adventure, watersport facilities – including banana-boat rides, paragliding, water skiing and snorkelling – are available at this beach. The rest of the resort is located along the shoreline, complete with hotels, apartments, restaurants and bars.
This small resort is loaded with fantastic places to eat along the coastline. It’s all about the Greek tavernas here and in Stegna they’re serving up authentic fresh dishes including scrumptious seafood straight from the sea.
All of these beachside restaurants have outdoor patios looking straight onto the water and giving fantastic views of the Mediterranean Sea. Some of the most popular seafood dishes in this area include shrimp and clam pastas, fried octopus and flavourful lobsters. If you’re staying in Self Catering accommodation there are several mini-markets along the main strip that sell all your grocery necessities as well as sun creams and cold drinks.
Late night drinks
The nightlife in Stegna is a pretty relaxed affair, with a few late-night beach parties hosted by coastal bars and Greek tavernas serving wine and cocktails. One of the best ways to spend the evening in Stegna is by having a leisurely meal by the seaside and watching the sun go down as you sip margaritas and ouzo. For something a little more upbeat you can always head to the capital city of Rhodes Town and join in with their lively nightlife scene.
Neighbouring villages and cities
Only 30 minutes away from tiny Stegna is the capital city of Rhodes Town. Buses from Stegna to Rhodes Town leave daily and are an inexpensive way to travel.
Once in the capital city you can explore its medieval town and upmarket areas as well as restaurant-hop between Rhodes Town’s upscale eateries. There’s lots of places to shop including quaint boutiques, designer shops and local markets. Rhodes Town’s long beach is a must-visit, and after you’re done sunning yourself you can get geared up for a wild night of partying in the city centre.
A little closer to home is Archangelos village, built in the seventh century. This historic village has plenty to see – like a medieval castle built by the Venetians, and churches from the Byzantine Era. Right across from Stegna beach is a small island called Saint Nikolas. For a fun trip out you can hop aboard a boat at the harbour and explore the ruins of Saint Nikolas church, which dates all the way back to the Middle Ages.
