The remote beach of Kopria is a nice surprise for the visitor of the southwestern coast of the island. The beach is situated at a distance of some 45 kilometers southwestern to the town of Rhodes, at a short distance after Mantriko and 6 kilometers before arriving to Skala Kameirou. Despite its ill-sounding name (kopria in Greek means muck), it is a wonderful beach with big rocks at its ends and nice sand and pebbles at its length. No facilities are available for the swimmers. Here you will not find sun beds and umbrellas, nor sea sports, not even water (you have to bring it along). But you will enjoy calmness and solitary swimming and sunbathing in a crystal clear sea and relax on the nice sand. In fact, you will have an almost private beach, which you will share with only few people who, like you, have not chosen one of the crowded, noisy and well organized beaches. Access to the beach is very easy, by private means only or by taxi. One kilometer after Mantriko, on the way to Skala Kameirou, you will turn right and arrive to the beach.
At the beach of Skala Kameirou, serving as the port of the inland village of Kretenia, you will not find the thick, long sand, or the good organization of the rest of the resorts; but, you will find clean, crystal clear sea and calmness and you will enjoy swimming within an excellent environment of luxuriant green. The beach is situated at a distance of some 51 kilometers southwestern to the capital town of Rhodes and 4,5 kilometers northern to the scenic inland village of Kretenia.
