Banana beach now goes by the name Rodia, is on the east side of Sithonia about 10 km south of Vourvourou. The beach is small and at the end of a steep valley that ends with the beach. It is quite sheltered by the cliffs that surround it from 3 sides.
There is a beach bar (Rodia) that organizes the beach with sun-beds and umbrellas. The area is very well developed with a green tree filled park before the beach. In the grass you can sit on bean bags or picnic tables and rest in the shade under the trees. A fast food restaurant serves simple snacks like pizza. There are also toilets and showers.
The beach has nice coarse sand that continues into the water at a gentle slope. The water is very clean and this is a great place to put a mask and snorkel in the water. Highly recommended for families with children.
What’s great about Rodia
Perfect day beach with good food and organization. the water is ideal for swimming.
And what’s not…
Only the drive down on a dirt road.
About 10 km south of Vourvourou you will see the sign “Rodia”. Follow the dirt road a couple of kilometers to the end. Parking can be sparse.
