Navarone bay


Navarone bay is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular bays on the island. Just south of Lindos, this sandy stretch was used as the setting for the 1961 film The Guns of Navarone, which gave it its name.

The water in Navarone bay is captivating and so clear that some customers named it “A swimming pool in the sea”. There is a striking contrast between the arid landscape and the turquoise waters. Fringed by two luxury hotels and a popular swim stop for day cruises, the beach is idyllic and less commercial than those in the village.

Awesome location that not many people know about.

A dreamy, relaxing location ideal for those who want to get away from the crowded places. 

Navarone Bay (or Psaltos) is the best place to swim near Lindos! It’s turquoise waters, the clear sand on the bottom and the amazing view of Lindos Castle, make Navarone Bay one of the most popular destinations for hired boats as well as luxury yachts and daily cruise ships!
