Levante Beach Club on the Greek island of Rhodes is modern and contemporary with fantastic facilities for all activities. With an enviable location on a long stretch of sand and pebble beach, it enjoys a prime spot for all watersports, particularly sailing and windsurfing.
The Neilson team will be running the extensive watersports, cycling, tennis and fitness programme at Levante and our wonderful childcare team will be on hand to look after your children in our kids’ clubs. Our partners, Powered by Playitas, run the hotel and hospitality side.
If fitness is your thing, you'll love the classes and training facilities at Levante with a large choice of daily classes, an air-conditioned gym with fixed and free weights, work out of the day, indoor studio classes, a large, shaded outdoor fitness platform and a 'cool pool' to start the recovery - so you're ready to go again the next day. The tennis facilities are also excellent with 6 courts, including a show court, 2 padel tennis courts and a bar for refreshments.
The real wow factor at Levante has to be the 6 swimming pools, including a huge free-form family pool, sports pool and adult-only pool, whether you’re looking for a quiet spot to relax or space to put in some laps, it’s easy to find your place for a little ‘me’ time.
With so much going on, we understand why you may find it hard to leave the Beach Club, but if you do want to explore you should 100% sign up for a guided bike ride to discover the sights of the local area. Rhodes itself is steeped in history and the whitewashed car-free village of Lindos with its acropolis is close by.
After a day on the water, bikes or tennis courts, the beachfront bar is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the stunning sunsets before heading for dinner in our restaurant or a local taverna. And, at the end of a busy day, you'll enjoy returning to the modern, understated bedrooms with large private balconies or terraces. Why not make it extra special and book 1 of our premium suites, each with its own private pool.

The island of Rhodes is a paradise for cyclists with an excellent network of lovely cycling routes to suit all abilities. Road cyclists will love the smooth tarmac roads with long gentle climbs, equally long descents and plenty of steep climbs. Combined with very little traffic and inspiring views Rhodes is right up there with the best of our road cycling destinations.
The mountain biking is just as good with beautiful coastal routes, quiet rural roads, rocky paths and dry riverbeds, fruit orchards, olive groves, sleepy villages, craggy mountain ranges and swathes of cypress and pine trees.
There are several guided rides each day; intermediate and challenging rides tend to leave early to make the most of the cooler mornings before the sun reaches its highest. Easier rides tend to be shorter, along the flat ground where possible and leave late afternoon.
The bikes are also available to take free riding, just find a friend to accompany you and you are free to explore at your leisure.

The typical wind force ranges from 2-4, with gentle cross-onshore conditions in the morning and stronger offshore winds later in the day.

Levante Beach Beach Club is on the island of Rhodes, the largest island in the Dodecanese group of islands and is known as the ‘Island of the Sun God Helios’ being far enough south to enjoy long hours and days of sunshine. Rhodes is known for its crystal clear sea, endless sandy beaches, spectacular sunsets, archaeological sites and a UNESCO World Heritage Medieval City.
Our Beach Club is situated on Afandou Beach, the nearest small village of Kolymbia is about 1.5km away. The main street, lined with eucalyptus trees, has a selection of bars, restaurants and small shops. There’s a rocky headland which separates 2 beaches and a small, pretty harbour.
Slightly further afield is Afandou, located in a valley full of fruit and olive trees, it is 1 of Rhodes' oldest villages. The square in Afandou is buzzing with locals meeting for coffee and watching the world go by. At the square is also the church of Panagia Katholiki, the Catholic Virgin Mary, which is built on the ruins of an early Catholic basilica and is decorated with frescos dating from the 17th Century.
A few kilometres north of Afandou you will find Ladikos Bay with the 2 beautiful beaches Ladiko Bay and Anthony Quinn Bay, both of which are worth visiting for their cliffs and crystal clear waters.
Lindos is known as 1 of Rhodes' most beautiful villages. The whitewashed small houses are located along narrow alleys that look up the slope where the famous acropolis is located. The stunning 10th Century acropolis was fortified through the ages by the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Knights of St John and the Ottomans. Car-free, this unspoilt village is an enchanting warren of cobbled alleyways; with glimpses of history around each corner, don’t miss the ornate frescoes in the 14th Century Church of Panagia.
The island’s capital, Rhodes Town, is a must-see. Here you can get a real taste of the Middle Ages in the UNESCO-listed old town. Enclosed within honey-coloured walls, a warren of stone streets packs in galleries, museums and a 14th-century knights’ palace. The cobbled passageways are also home to tucked-away boutiques and cafés, where you can stop off for a coffee or meze. To get a real taste for the place you can soak up stunning views all around as you take a 4km walk around the city walls, built on top of the Byzantine fortifications between 1330 and 1522, bring your head for heights!
