Tsambika (or Tsampika) beach combines the extremes: bikini beauties on a dream beach on the one hand and pious pilgrims to the miraculous Marian icon on the other. Tsambika beach, also a popular destination for excursion boats, is one of the most beautiful beaches of the east coast of Rhodes, and still unspoiled. The beach is well frequented, but even in midsummer hardly crowded. 

On Tsambika beach there are water sports, beach showers, sun loungers and umbrellas for hire, several taverns and snack bars; you can play beach volleyball. Be careful though: the sand heats up so much during the hot months, that a walk is only possible with sandals. It is one of the warmest places on the island.

Above the bright white fine sand, rises the steep 240m high rock, on which a white chapel is enthroned. A steep road and then an equally steep stairway lead up. This chapel, the "Kyra Panagia Tsambika" (Tsambika Monastery), has always been a pilgrimage destination for women who are having difficulties conceiving.

We have just come back, The beach was lovely very hot and the water was lovely and clear. One issue which may of offended beach lovers, was a man walking around taking pictures discretely of couples. but did not bother us. Clearly not a naturist.

I am looking for a location in Rhodes, away from the hoards, to get married. The spot at the monastery overlooking Tsambika beach through the pine trees looks idyllic. but can anyone please tell me if it is it reachable by road as we will have a few elderely guests?

The nude section of the beach is still there (Oct 2011). Beach bars etc getting closer, so may not be there for much longer unfortunately...

Once, there was a nudist beach down there, it was so beautiful... Does any of you know if it still exists? I wanna visit that place again, but don't believe I'll have the chance to make it...

Tsambika beach is stunning - its well worth getting there early morning and walking upto the monastery (it can get very hot) and looking at the views down to the beach. The beach itself is lovely - suitable for small children as it has very shallow waters.

Limni (Apolakkia)

Limni beach is a wide remote stretch of beach on the lower west side of the island, just under the village of Apolakkia. It is out of the way and not the easiest place to get to, but you can still find some comforts, such as showers and a toilet block.

Tholos (Theologos)

A pretty colorful village with tall shuttered buildings and narrow streets, where the traditional way of life is still widely practiced, also featuring an excellent beach - although sometimes breezy.
