Two small bays form the beach of Saint Paul in Rhodes. A beautiful beach next to Lindos is visited by locals and tourists.

The right part of the beach is organized with sunbeds, food, and music, while the left part is offered for moments of relaxation.

It is a sandy beach with little pebbles and rocks where you can climb and dive in the clear waters.

You will have to leave the car before you reach the beach, and then you must walk to reach it.

The beach is easily accessible by foot from nearby Lindos.

Tip: Scenes from the movie “The Guns of Navarone” were shot at the nearby Laki location, if you wish ask some boatmen to take you there.

Tsampika is one of the most popular beaches in Rhodes located 26 km southeast of the city of Rhodes and 5 km from Archangelos.

It is a natural beach, that is located under the rock that hosts the famous monastery of Panagia Tsambika of Psili to which it owes its name.

This large beach has golden sand and shallow waters located in a magnificent landscape. All this makes it suitable for families with young children but also for young people of all ages and requirements.

Tsampika is quite well organized with umbrellas and sunbeds for rent, a shower, a beach bar to enjoy your coffee or drink as well as to eat something casual, and taverns to dine when you want. There are also several possibilities for water sports as well as inflatable toys for children!

You can reach it by car or bus, or by the boats that make day cruises from the city of Rhodes.
