Sandy clean beach which stretches 8 miles. Spotlessly clean near our hotel and plenty of water sports facilities available. Wind can be a bit fierce at times.

A magnificent beach stretching for about 5 miles. Let down a little by tavernas which have not been modernised very much but with care and attention you an still find little gems. On a calm day you could not find a better beach but when windy the sea kicks up a bit and the prevailing wind seems to come directly... More

The beach in itself is nice, good sand, excellent view, warm water. But throughout our entire stay (middle of july) it was so windy that lying on the beach was really difficult (with a book or the like)

Beautiful beach but fairly choppy. Beach is sand but once in the water it is very rocky, all beit not sharp just hard to manage footing.

If you are a lover of golden sand don't come here! Its a coarse sand and the entrance to the sea is very rocky so take shoes. the waves were amazing and sea quite warm (July).

The beach has dark sand; it’s not the soft white thing I’m used to. You need special shoes for walking/swimming. Our hotel was at the end of Ammoudara were the beach is not so nice. 4 big chimneys spoil the view. The sand is not very clean, but water is. Afternoons are usually very windy with dangerous waves.

In search of a place to lounge along the beach, we set off to Ammoudara beach on a windy Cretian afternoon. The cafés along the beach mostly offer free beach lounge chairs, wind screens and service while you lounge. Since the seemingly never-relenting wind proved too much for us to bear, we set off toward the small town streets in... More
