There are excellent bus connections between Heraklion city and Ammoudara and the Heraklion airport is an approx. 15min drive from there, making it an excellent hub from which to explore various parts in the region.
In Ammoudara, there is a wide variety of supermarkets, shops, restaurants and cafes for both locals and visitors. There is also a cinema complex with an open air theatre and many hotels and apartments, ranging from basic to luxury. In addition, there is a fully equipped Thalasso Aegeo Spa in the area for those wishing to truly relax and be pampered during their stay.
The town runs alongside the 7km long beach by the same name, which begins from River Giofyro (1km west of Heraklion city) and ends at the Almyros river. The beach’s sand is brown and very fine and the area attracts many sea sports enthusiasts for wind surfing and kite surfing.
