Ammoudara, Heraklion Crete

Ammoudara (meaning "the huge sand" in greek) is a well developed tourist resort within the open bay of Heraklion. Situated 6 kilometres far from Heraklion at the West and has only a few permanent residents, and is very close to the tourist resort of Linoperamata.

From Ammoudara you can visit the ruins of the Venetian castle at the nearby village of Palaeokastro (some 6 kilometres far away at the Northwest).

It is also worth visiting the small villages of Ano Kalessia, within an area full of vineyards, and Kato Kalessia, with the church of Panaghia going back to the 14th century. Both are found at a distance of 8-9 kilometres far from Amoudara at the South. It is in these villages that takes place the feast of the sultana raisin, organised every year by the Cultural  Centre of the villages, in early August.

The visitor will find a wide range of lodging in Amoudara; several hotels of all categories, studios and rooms to let are available.
Swimming and sea sport facilities are offered at the beaches of Amoudara, Linoperamata and the nearby Palaeokastro.
There are also many taverns restaurants and cafes for food and drink.

Access from Herkleio is very easy by public buses with frequent service and taxi, as well as by private or rented car and motorbikes.
