Ammoudi is handy for those who are staying in Agios Nikolaos, being situated just 1km north of the city centre. The beach can be found in a large bay with shallow and clean waters. Amoudi beach is smaller than most of Crete’s other beaches, but it remains a firm favourite with the locals and visitors alike, offering an intimate and peaceful atmosphere.
It is lined with a small number of sunbeds and umbrellas for anyone looking to relax by the sea. It’s also perfectly safe for swimmers and also has water sport facilities for people of all ages. Lifeguards and showers are onsite.
The beach can be accessed by the paved road leading up to it, but there is also a local bus service. It’s also handy for local eateries and bars, which offer fantastic ocean views to people who choose to stop by for a drink and something to eat.
