Pride of Pefkos
One of the main draws of the popular Eclipse Bar is the almost infamous pool jump – you can take a 20-foot leap from the bar into the depths of the cool sea below, then resurface for a drink or two. Once you’ve discovered this little gem, which plays a mix of music from the classics to new chart-toppers, you’ll be itching to return to Pefkos’ open-air party place with its friendly staff and fantastic cocktails.

One of the best-loved bars in Lindos, the Courtyard is fronted by the super-friendly Jack, who keeps the clientele coming back for more of his traditional Greek Bouzouki playing. Classic white-washed walls provide the backdrop for tunes from the charts as well as national numbers, while the interior is decorated with hand-painted plates and other memorabilia. Part of the local scene for more than 17 years, this is a go-to venue, with its pretty views over the rooftops of Lindos.

Pepito's Cocktail Bar
For a casual cocktail
A seemingly endless list of cocktails, from long drinks like Blue Lagoons to minty Mojitos, gives Pepito’s the edge over many other Faliraki favourites. The owner, Pepito himself, has more than 75 hats that he changes throughout the night as entertainment to add to the TV screens and unintrusive background music. Various free snacks are replenished regularly and there’s even the odd complimentary shot!
