Tsambika is an 800 meters long beach of fine pure sand, gently shelving on the east coast of the island of Rhodos. Distant at about 26 km from the capital, this pure-sand beach has survived from permanent development as most of the land is owned by the Orthodox Church. In fact, at the north end of the beach, on a sharp peak overlooking the beach, there is the church of Panagià Tsambika.
This beach is considered as one of the best beaches on the island. It has crystal clear waters and it’s considered ideal for families with children as it is all sandy and shallow. There are umbrellas and loungers, watersports and a few canteens for sandwiches, ice cream and refreshments.
Tsambika can be reached by public transport but it is better to get there by car or bike as there are a lot of interesting surroundings to explore.
