Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The beach is far from the center of Heraklion, but you can get there very easily by city bus. Unfortunately, the place is very neglected. The beach was very dirty and there was an unpleasant smell in the air from the nearby power plant. I wouldn't really want to move around alone - among hotels, lots of empty buildings and ruins (like slums), it didn't look safe.

The LONGEST beach ever in Crete! Parking lots, beach umbrellas, restaurants and bus stops everywhere! I also like the table tennis center in Lotos restaurant.

Lovely beach , kids loved the large waves. And sunloungers free if you buy food or drink from the eateries who supply the beds

nice beach with waves you can jump unlike other spots we went to in greece. We were sitting near a restaurant called heaven and you can use their chairs/umbrellas and only have to spend 5 euros on a drink/food while your there. Sandy beach, rocky going into the water and then its sandy. Bring your water shoes.

Nice beach and family friendly, although can be windy at times - not necessarily a bad thing as it makes the heat more bearable and also means lots of fun jumping waves! There are a few nice places to eat and buy drinks and snacks very close by too.

I didn’t actually go to this beach, BUT needed to warn that Apple Maps shows it just east of the port and it’s NOT there. I took the #7 bus north of the airport to those beaches.

We stayed in Ammoudara for 11 nights and visited the beach everyday. Our hotel had reserved sunbeds, although non residents were welcome to nice them if they bought a drink (I think this is custom in Greece).

There were plenty of cafes & restaurants on the beach

The beach and sea were clean.

It was windy on occasion, so a bit wavey too. Which was fun!

The beach is a mixture of sand and shingle. It's shingle and a bit stoney in the water, but this didn't stop our enjoyment.

Decent beach, usually very windy and not much in the area but still nice. If you are expecting something special you'll be disappointed but if you just want a simple beach with a few bars by it this is a nice place to go that's close to Heraklion (no. 6 bus takes you there, then either of the no. 1, 2 or 20 takes you back). Went a few days during our stay and always enjoyed it

Could be cool if you are in a big hotel, outside this, the most disappointing experience in Greece. The place is not quiet, but it is dead, many closed shops, looks difficult to meet anybody. The beach is not very clean especially for Crete, disgusting view of a electric plant. Empty bars, although there are few of them. Only good point you can leave easily with the bus
