Tsambika beach

Tsambika is an 800 meters long beach of fine pure sand, gently shelving on the east coast of the island of Rhodes. 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. Tsambika beach video clip

Location of Tsambika beach

  • The man taking care of umbrellas and sunbeds was extremely rude. He came up to us, while we were sitting on our towels, and started shouting at us something like “get out” or “this is for tourists”. After complaining to his colleagues we were explained, that you can only stay on your towel somewhere else but not among sunbeds. Unfortunately there are no signs and the man does not know words like sorry, excuse me or please. We were shocked, it was almost like an attack. Although the beach is beautiful, this man ruined our experience. And the food in the local taverna is crap as well.

      Just a quick note. The rude guy is paying a rent and obviously you were ruining his business. Of course this does not justify his manners but acknowledge the fact that all beaches in Rhodes, even Tsambika, one of the best beaches in the world, is free to access by anyone.

  • We have visited Tsambika quite a few times and fortunately there is a large area for lying down on a towel. It is a fantastic beach as everybody can tell from the beautiful picture in this post. If you stay in Rhodes, you have to visit Tsambika!
