Amoudara, Crete, Greece
Amoudara is on the outskirts of Heraklion and provides a beach perfect for sun lovers and water sport enthusiasts. This resort makes the perfect base for exploring Crete as Heraklion, which is only about 15 minutes away, is the central point for public transport.

There was a good bus service, tours. bars and restaurants. The beach was clean and the sea ideal for swimming.

Great location, brilliant beach, shops and bars. Shops stayed open until at least 11. Locals were lovely and really helpful. Good bus service and cheap which the locals helped us with, explaining that we should buy our bus ticket in the supermarket as it was cheaper. Plenty of atms. <br /> <br /> Easy to book excursions to Spinola, Samaria Gorge, Knossos etc. Coach mostly picked you up from the hotel or a taxi was sent to transport you to a pick up point. Lovely taverna near the hotel called uncle George -3 course meal for 2 was only €38 and free raki and an extra free dessert. <br /> <br /> Small water park near by. Water sports centre locally too.

It's very touristy, lots of cheap shops selling cheap and fun rubbish. Beautiful beach, gorgeous views.

Amoudara has a beautiful 5km stretch of sandy beach which has been awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness. The beach is not only perfect for relaxing on the sand and paddling in the sea but there is also a good range of watersports for all to enjoy.
Amoudara is positioned on the outskirts of Heraklion and visitors should take a visit to Heraklion's Venetian harbour which is lined with traditional tavernas and bars. Other historical sites and excursions worth visiting include the Knossos Palace, Heraklion's Archaeological Museum and the Samaria Gorges. In addition a ferry from Heraklion can be taken to the former leper colony on Spinalonga Island.
Heraklion Airport is approximately 15 km away - transfer time approx. 30 minutes.
