Kamiros Skala is a small harbor on the east side of the island of Rhodes. From here small boats depart to the island of Halki. The journey takes only 45 minutes from here. Kamiros Skala is a small affair and consists of just a couple of houses. It is a fishing village where there are some rooms for rent and there are a few restaurants. According to the signs along the road there is also an antique "Lycian tomb" in the village, but it was unclear where it was to be found as soon as you drove into the village. Eventually I seem to have put it accidentally in a picture. The tomb consists of an unfinished facade and a number of holes in the rock immediately to the left before you walk up the pier. At the pebble beach of the village there was once a Christian basilica with mosaics, but this is completely destroyed by the waves of the sea.

We just went there to have a look at the harbor to see if it might be possible to make a day trip to the island of Halki, but the departure times and the time the boat would sail back was (usually the next day) not favorable for us. Maybe it was the time we were there (May) but we decided not to do it. In high season (July and August) you probably have a better chance. The beach at the harbor itself is not much, and mainly consists of little rocks and pieces of gravel and coarse sand. In the area of Kamiros Skala you can find many greenhouses covered with plastic where vegetables are grown.
