Ammoudara Beach is great, but do not rent a car from Holiday Services SA of Ammoudara!

In September 2014, we started a rental with Holiday Services SA for almost 12 months. We needed a 125 CC scooter for the first few months, then a car for the next few, and the... read more

Nice sandy beach. There are places with hotels and apartments near and calmly places, where you can stay alone. No dislikes.

In September 2014, we started a rental with Holiday Services SA for almost 12 months. We needed a 125 CC scooter for the first few months, then a car for the next few, and the last 5 or 6 months we needed both. Of course we could not possibly afford the high season tourist price for the whole year, and... More

Our hotel was right on the beach. Very nice and clean. Part of the beach is very stony when you are going into the sea - tough on the feet. Apparently you have to beware of the sea urchins too. Didn't see any ourselves though.

Apart from the historic, this city is really interesting to investigate - do not miss 18666 Market Avenue which joins onto 25 Avgoustou which runs downhill to the road in front of the Koules fort. Market Street has great produce stores at the south end including fruit, meat, and fresh fish. Morosini square is the end of Market and the... More

Ammoudara beach is a nice beach with a good line up of restaurants and cafes. The beach is clean and the water was nice and warm (we visited in August). My kids love it. A few minutes from the beach, there are also many restaurants, tavernas. and shops for souvenirs, beach towels, jewelry, tshirts, hats etc. Definitely worth a visit.

Quickly into deep and warm water, few waves, little tide and very clean sea. Excellent for oldies and young alike.

Closest beach to the city center, but if you have transport would recommend to go farther away for swimming! Many beach bars and places to sit and have lunch or drink coffee/ cocktails.

We stayed at the Atlantica Akti Zeus hotel which looks onto this beach. The beach itself was very clean and had a lovely view of the island of Dia and the coastline down to Heraklion. There is a power station nearby but you only see it if you look back towards it - it is not in your natural eyeline.... More

Went for a long walk along this beach….not many tourists, but plenty of places to take a seat and enjoy a drink or food. Water is crystal clear.

Ammoudara area means long in English. It is about 8 kilometers ( 5 miles) most of it is sandy. A small portion on the west end is a bit rocky. We have been here 6 weeks and experienced windy and calm conditions. No rain at all. On windless days the Sea is las smooth as glass. On windy days kite... More
