Tsambika 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, and still unspoilt. The beach is well frequented, but even in midsummer hardly crowded.
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, has always been a pilgrimage destination for women who wish to have children and can not have any.
