Named because it appears to have been built in a depression (lakko) in the plain, Apolakkia is located 92 km from Rhodes town. The west facing extensive sandy beach stretches for more than 20 km and attracts many visitors seeking an alternative to the cosmopolitan beaches on the northern part of the island. Here small groups can find a beautiful piece of beach and be alone. Relax and enjoy the crystal clear sea, the thick sand and bright sun in a peaceful setting.

Accommodation is available in the region, mainly in the villages a little further inland which are nonetheless very close to the sea. Outside the village is the church of Agios Georgios tou Varda, whilst nearby is the Apolakkia dam which serves the area.
