Tsambika is one of the most beautiful beaches in Rhodes. It is situated on the eastern coast of the island, about 26km south of Rhodes town.
The beach has taken its name after the Monastery of the Virgin of Tsambika, a tiny monastery some 340 metres up the hill. From the car park there are 297 strenuous steps to the top, but the fantastic view over Tsambika Bay is definitely worth the effort.
