The area belongs to the environmental protection network Nature 2000, because it is a habitat for dolphins and seals. It is a completely private, low-to-zero crowded people location and can be accessed only through our properties or via a boat. The beach is covered with small white pebbles and bits of sand. The crystal blue and turquoise waters will blow your mind.
he wonderful private beach of Ammoudi is located underneath the complex of the four villas Eos, Helios, Iris and Fos. If you are staying at villa Geofos you will need to do the extra mile (literally it is ~1.3km) away from the hike’s start). From Geofos you can also drive and park near villa Iris, there is enough space, so you won’t disturb other guests.
What is the duration of the hike?
The duration of the hike is about 15-20 minutes if you are an experienced hiker or if you want to make it a nice workout. It is about 25-35 minutes if you want to enjoy nature and take it slow. The way down is slippery and requires careful steps and attention, while the way up is easier in terms of technicality, but more exhausting.
