Trianda or Trianta, along with the neighbouring resort Ixia, is one of the main luxury hotel beach strips for Rhodes City and lies just to the south-west of the town centre.
The Trianda beach strip runs for several kilometres and is home to the most fashionable five-star hotels on Rhodes, some concentrating on conference facilities and others on all-inclusive family holidays.
Trianda is also home to many smaller family hotels and apartment blocks surrounded by neon-lit music bars, international restaurants, roadside cafes and beach snack bars that meet almost everyone's taste. Most are found on the long esplanade that runs behind the Trianda beach for almost all its length.
Trianda beach is not particularly good – a mixture of sand and pebbles – but then it doesn't need to be. Location is everything here, with a long seafront so near to the city and hotels offering their all-inclusive holidays with extravagant swimming pools and high-end restaurants.
That said, there are plenty of facilities to be found on the Trianda beaches – sunbeds, showers and toilets are plentiful and there are a couple of watersports centres as well.
Trianda beach is north-facing so onshore winds can, even in high summer, bring heavy swells and crashing waves.
The crowds tend to thin out the further you get from Rhodes City and it can get very much quieter when you reach the sand and pebble beach strip at the neighbouring beaches of Ialysos.
