exploring the area
After exploring Lachania and having a meal or coffee at one of the traditional village tavernas, you may wish to venture further. A stroll through the surrounding hilly countryside, a drive to one of the neighbouring villages, sipping some wine on a secluded beach watching the sunset - it is all there for you. There are lots of little churches to be discovered, historic sites to be visited and the island is perfect for a day round trip combined with stops at the ancient city of Kamiros, Ialysos or Lindos.
Lachanias narrow streets are empty of traffic and with its traditional white painted houses the whole village has a relaxed feel ideal for those who want to experience a traditional Greek holiday.
There are numeral beaches around Lahania and the next villages of Genadi, Prasonisi and Katavia. Some of them are sandy beaches, and some of them are with pebbles, but most of them are quite deserted, except the ones closeby Genadi. One can go on a discovery trip to find out more, and also the beaches around Lindos are well worth a visit. The beach of Prasonisi surfers paradise is always more busy with a surfers school and sun beds. Just outside Lachania goint towards Genadi there is a beach place with beach bar and sun beds, called Mojito. We have spent long days in the sun ordering our mojito from the bed, while listening to the nice music in company of the friendly owners Andreas and Dora.
