The town isn’t far from the popular water park in Rhodes, which is a great attraction for families with younger kids who like to cool down and splash about in the water.
The hills on the mainland of Rhodes offer the resort some shelter from the rain and strong winds. Pefkos is the driest and hottest part of the island because of the protection it gets from the mountains, making it perfect if you want to avoid as much rain as you can.
