Matoula Beach

The Matoula Beach is on the outskirts of Trianda but it’s just a few minutes from the beach. The hotel itself comes with a lively pool area plus a bar-come-restaurant.

There’s also a keyhole-shaped pool that has a corner especially for little ones. It’s in an idyllic spot in the hotel’s grassy gardens and it’s surrounded by palm trees and shrubs. You’ll also never have far to travel for a drink or a snack thanks to the poolside bar.

For breakfast and dinner, the main restaurant lays out international buffets. Meanwhile, in the evening, the pool bar becomes an a la carte restaurant.

Overview of Trianda

Trianda, also known locally as Ialyssos, is a great base for a holiday to Rhodes. With a stay at the Matoula Beach, you’re within a short taxi ride of Rhodes Town, but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle.

Whether you love windsurfing or sightseeing, Trianda is guaranteed to please. Life is spent on the beach where you can lay on the pebbles, skim across the water and enjoy the fine facilities.

For some extra culture and history, take a short bus journey to either Rhodes Town or Ixia.

Things to do in Trianda

Location-wise, the Matoula Beach is just a couple of minutes’ walk from a wide stretch of sand. It’s on the edge of Trianda, but a pleasant 30-minute stroll will take you to the centre.

The beach is a firm favourite with windsurfers thanks to the Meltemi winds. If you’ve never tried before, you can take a lesson. The beach is made from pebbles but, if you’d rather visit a sandy beach, take the 10-minute bus journey to Ixia.

For a spot of culture, Rhodes Town is only 15 minutes away. You can see the medieval sights including the fortress walls and the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes.

With great beaches, a generous dose of history and plenty of water sports, there’s lots to love in Rhodes!


Resort Summary

Though it’s not as developed or as overcrowded as some of the other resorts on Rhodes, Trianda is still well-equipped to deal with the influx of tourists which flock to its shores every year. As such, it enjoys the best of both worlds – a fantastic infrastructure of restaurants, bars and beach facilities without all of the attendant hustle and bustle that normally comes as part of the deal. And for those who prefer a more boisterous holiday, the capital of Rhodes Town or the party town of Faliraki are a mere stone’s throw away.
