There are a few beaches in Kastellorizo, and it is a good idea to take a walk and find your own little bay. The only way for a swim is diving from the cliffs, platform and even the harbor. A good solution are the boats that can take to to the few beaches of the surrounding islands (Ro, Agios Georgios and Stroggyli).
At Pharos, where a small pier allows for boats to approach as well as at Plakes, within 20 min. walk to the north. At Mandraki, a narrow stripe of sandy beach. More beaches to be found at the islands of Ro – two concave stripes of sand – Aghios Gheorghios and Strongyli. For the daredevils: swimming within the Blue Cave (alias Cave of Phokialis), accessible by boat.
