Stegna beach is located on the south-east coast, about 30 kilometres south of Rhodes City and down a long and winding road.
Signposted off the main east coast road as Stegna or Stegana is lies just beyond the large inland village of Archangelos.
Stegna is a relatively small but pretty resort with a long gently curving stretch of good sand that ends with small harbours both to the north and to the south.
The beach resort has a quiet atmosphere with a large hotel dominating the centre of the beach and many apartments, villas and small hotels on dotted around.
The beach here is a mix of sand and pebble, less sandy to the south where rocks and stones predominate although the shallow water makes Stegna beach a good choice for families with children.
A beach cantina opens in the summer, there are some watersports on offer and beach barbecue parties are popular in the evenings.
Stegna has been popular with German tourists for years and they tend to commandeer the beach strips near the hotels. Caiques and water taxis pull in regularly with day visitors.
There are a few tavernas in the village along with a couple of mini-markets, car hire firms and tourist shops.
There is a daily bus to Rhodes City and another heads south to Lindos from the nearby village of Archangelos which, although close by, is at the end of a very steep hill.
