Tsambika is an 800 meters long beach of fine pure gold sand, gently shelving on the east coast of the island of Rhodos. Distant at about 26 km from the capital, this exotic looking 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.
It is very easy to access. After a short nice drive down off the main road you get to a long stretch of parking space just by the beach.
Tsambika 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 is a tranquil naturist section at the far end of the beach for a safe natural swim.
Lots of facilities on the beach. Beach bars, umbrellas and loungers, watersports and a few canteens for sandwiches, ice cream and refreshments. There are also a few nice traditional tavernas on the road down to the beach.
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.
