Drinking Water

Drinking Water

Whilst the tap water in Rhodes is probably safe to drink, most people drink bottled water which tastes much better and the mineral content is more agreeable. In the heat it's important to keep hydrated, especially after alcohol the previous day. Drink lots of bottled water.



In Pefkos the pharmacy is on the main road near Lorencos.

Working hours are:

Mon-Sat. 09:00 to 13:00 and 16:30 to 21:00
Sunday: 10:30 to 13:00 and 17:00 to 21:00

The pharmacist in friendly, knowledgable, and speaks excellent English.



Whilst not usually a problem here, early in the season especially if the spring was wet, you sometimes get weeks where they are out. Luckily you can prevent bites easily. More Here


The doctor in Pefkos is based behind the Chemist near Flavia.
