While the whitewashed, low-rise buildings that form Lardos town are nestled among the olive groves inland, the outskirts reach all the way to the Blue Flag-awarded Lardos Beach. It’s a glittering stretch, with calm waters protected by the arid headlands that curve into Pefkos and the surrounding indigo sea.
You’ll be ideally placed to venture around the ancient wonders of this illustrious resort and its siblings. Go in search of major old monuments and buildings, and make a beeline for Lindos – this wowing resort is home to the Acropolis. Check out temples and amphitheatres carved from stone.
Lardos has a reputation for being laid-back, but it’s still got some entertainment. Hellas Mini Golf is a great choice for a few hours of fun in the sun. Lying close to Lardos village, it’s a colourful course with 18 challenging holes. But for more high-octane excitement, why not try out some go-karting?
