Prasonisi is the last edge of Rhodes at the very South and is found at a distance of 95 kilometers southern to the town of Rhodes and 12 kilometers far from the inland village of Kattavia, also to the South. It is a strange place: in winter it is a small islet, but in summer you will see a small peninsula. How does it happen? Very simple! The islet is connected with the rest of the island with a narrow strip of sandy land, which in winter is totally covered by the sea waves! Either an islet or a peninsula, Prassonissi is the meeting point of the fans of windsurfing. With the small coves in either side, it always has a beach with rough sea and another one with calm. The area offers accommodation facilities and food and drink is possible at the sea front fish taverns and cafes. The beach is long and sandy on both sides of the 500-meters-long strip of land connecting Rhodes with Prassonissi. As the wind is different in the two coves, windsurfing is possible with any weather. The fans of the sport have two characteristic terms to discern the beaches: there is the wave beach and the flat one. At the wave side the waves are usually of a height of 1-2 meters and of stable direction; on the good days . This beach is also suitable for kite surfing. The wind is between 4 to 6 Bft and the waves between 1 to 3 meters. There is a kite surfing school for those who need professional help to improve their skills.
