Pefkos is a popular holiday village located on the eastern side of Rhodes Island. It is just four kilometers away from Lindos and over fifty kilometers away from Rhodes Town. The way in which Pefkos started to become what it is today is very interesting. The village of Pefkos was once a fishing and agricultural summer base for people that lived in the communities further inland. Because of the heat and the duration of the working day they often decided to spend the night there, so they started building houses. The scenery around Pefkos is very nice with lots of pine trees and lush greenery, and those that appreciate the nature will love this place. Even the name ‘Pefkos’ translates into ‘pine tree’ due to the fact that pine trees are rapidly growing everywhere in the area.
At first glance, Pefkos looks like a peaceful travel destination, but at night it turns into a very lively place. There are two main streets full of bars and restaurants, and the village constantly grows year after year. New hotels and other tourist facilities are emerging all the time, but Pefkos has kept its traditional Greek charm.
