The beach is truly magnificent and worth the effort. The water is cristal clear, the little pebbles and the surrounding cliffs are beautiful and hole place gives a sense of serenity like no other.

Small beach with free sunbeds, in the afternoon it can get quite vavy and there are some rocks on the right side as you enter the water, you can really hurt your feet. Good for a relaxing couple afternoon.

Remote beach located in the adjacent bay to the nudist beach. It is a lovely beach within a small bay and a little taverna too. It has brick built toilets (not the best) and a nice place to catch the sun. Very good.

We visited one windy afternoon in the hopes that this was a more sheltered cove but were really disappointed! There isn't much of a set up at all, with a long sandy parking area that merges into the beach. It was very quiet which was...More

Buses to Oia from Fira (4 Replies)
I am going to be staying at a hostel in Fira but I want to watch the sunset at Ammoudi beach. I am wondering if there are buses past sunset back to Fira? On the other hand, are there any youth hostels in Oia? I haven't been able to find any.

Hey all My friend and I will be heading to Greece this October for 10 days. We've decided on Athens,santorini, and Crete. We were wondering the best way to travel in between places. And the best place to stay in Crete. We are wanting to stay close to Ammoudi Beach. But wasn't sure what hostel/hotels/b&bs were close by? And also how much money we should intend on bringing. Any information would be most helpful! Thanks so much. Jen

Birthday Dinner (4 Replies)
Hi all, It's my 30th birthday at the end of June and will be spending it at a lovely Airbnb overlooking Ammoudi Beach. I wondered if anyone had any suggestions for a special restaurant for the evening in the area (or within a taxi journey!). I don't mind the cost but ideally it would have a beautiful view, a good ambience, great food & nice drinks available! Would love to get a cocktail before too if possible (in the same place or somewhere nearby). It'll just be me & my partner. Any...More
