Fanes village is located 26th km from Rhodes town and near the village of Soroni. It is a picturesque village with narrow streets, known as the village of colors, since most houses are painted in many designs.
Fanes name came from the lighthouse that was in the village or the temple of Faneos. Many, however, argue that it came from a type of grass that grew in the area.
Apart from the scenic port of Fanes encounter a deserted beach, surrounded by traditional taverns. Windsurfing and kitesurfing are very popular, thanks to the wide sandy beach and the northerly winds. The beach is wide, shallow, with fine sand and pebbles.
