The village of Afandou was founded during the time when pirates used to overrun the islands of the Mediterranean and inhabitants sought shelter inland. The village of Afandou took its name form the word ‘áfandos’, which in Greek means ‘invisible’, because it could not be seen from the sea. Afandou is located 5Km from Faliraki, and is one of the largest and oldest villages on the island. Set against a lavish setting of fruit and olive trees, the village is also famous for its carpet manufactures. During the summer months the village is connected to the long beach – over 3Km of beach – by small a road-train.The golf course of Rhodes is situated in this area.
