Nice port visit from cruise ship

Written by Rodney T W

Tsampika Beach

One of the most beautiful beaches on Rhodes. A long, broad beach with fine, golden sand and dozens of colourful little flags marking out the various eating establishments and Makis' beach sports centre.

Apart from these, and a mini-market next to the bus stop, there is absolutely nothing else here - nothing except crowds of people of all ages and nationalities, who come to swim in the emerald crystal-clear water and admire the imposing rock with the Monastery of the Virgin of Tsampika, from which the beach has taken its name.

The Virgin of Tsampika is said to work miracles and young women having difficulty in conceiving often pray for her aid. If their prayers are answered, they name the child after the Virgin. (26 km from Rhodes town)
