Lambi is renowned for its rare multicolored pebbles. There used to be hills of them but the pebbles are so beautiful it is hard to resist making a collection of them which means hills have been flattened out.
The word Lambi means shining and is derived from the sun reflecting against the beautiful stones and the clear waters of the bay.
The beach is long and has tamarisk shrubs for shade. It can be reached by turning left at the junction after Kambos beach. If walking it takes around 25 minutes from Kambos Beach.
There are usually boats (caiques) that leave from Skala around 10AM and take about an hour. Being on the north side of the island it is open to meltemi winds so boats are not always available for this location.
It's also a pleasant location for lunch and dinner. The taverns are on the beach and serve food in a peaceful atmosphere.
There are also the remains of the old settlement Platys Gialos and the church of the Transformation (Metamorphosis) which is from the 16th century and considered as one of the most important sanctuaries of the island.
