This long sandy beach is close to Heraklion, so it's easy to travel to. It's perfect to take walks on or to just chill with a beer. Ammoudara wasn't very crowded when we visited, so we enjoyed our day there. There are several cafes lining...More

A lovely beach with fine sand. Perfect for young families wanting to play safely in the sea. Great views and a cooling breeze. Free parking is handy too.
