Great beach.

Perfect water, free sunbeds with orders at the cafe. Suitable for families. But the river brings some cold water that mixes with the sea. Can be refreshing.. Or shocking!

I have been to Ammoudara beach today and thought it was a very nice beach. I think Trip Advisor has got this confused with Ammoudi beach by Heraklion. This beach is 10 min drive from Ag Nic. There are 2 bars and about 200 beds. The beds are free if you order from a bar. The sand is great and... More

We arrived at the beach at around 9am so the beach was fairly empty; it did get busy pretty quickly but there are plenty of sun loungers which are free so room for everyone! The water was bright blue and the sand was golden, a truly beautiful beach. There are plenty of places to eat and drink and a full... More

Our hotel leads onto the beach which is one reason we chose it. Not the nicest of beaches by a long shot but for us, convenient and nice enough.

We were in a some shock after we first time came to this beach.. May be it is because a hot season. The beach was crowded, wasty and dirty water. A lot of human trash around. Actually the view of the power station didn't impress... So it was first and last coming. Fortunately Create has a lot of really fantastic... More

One of the favourite beaches on the island. No subbed charges if you place one order with the bar... Seem like a good deal to me. Apart from a good beach, nice water and good basic facilities, you can also get wifi too. Nice beach. Enjoy.

An ok beach, not particularly sandy, slightly gravelly, a good walk after passing through a stream, which can get quite deep in places

Ammoudara is about 15-20 min from the city centre, with a nice sandy beach and clear water. We have been there before the season started (end of May) so it was not overcrowded at all. Unfortunately there is some garbage around, but the sea water was clean and full of marine life. The wind was a bit strong on some... More
