Overview of Amoudara

On your holidays to Crete enjoy the most charming beaches, picturesque landscapes, exciting nightlife and year-round sun. On the northern coast, Amoudara is a beach paradise with a long promenade chock-full of bars, restaurants and pretty little shops. It’s terrifically well equipped and only a short distance from Heraklion, Crete’s capital. It’s also home to idyllic Atlantica Akti Zeus Hotel.

Things to do in Amoudara

Literally meaning ‘big sand’, Blue Flag Amoudara is a huge stretch of beautifully cared for soft sand. The shallows are great for paddling, but wade out a little further and the Aegean Sea becomes ideal for windsurfing and plenty of other watersports, too. The long promenade is populated with charming little shops, offering great opportunities to pick up some special souvenirs. Handcrafted jewellery and artisan clothing are very popular, as are tasty Grecian foods and drinks. A day trip to Heraklion is highly recommended, as the shopping, museums and nightlife are excellent.
