Beach description

Ammoudi, situated 66km southeast from Agios Nikolaos and 29km east from Ierapetra, lies adjacent to the thoroughfare linking Makrigialos to Goudouras. The prominent beach in this vicinity, known as Spilia Drakou (Dragon’s Cave), owes its name to a massive cave situated 500m north of the beach and the identically named tavern next to it. Two additional secluded coves lie to the west of Dragon’s Cave beach, accessible either on foot or via a dirt track.

The beaches, hidden jewels not easily visible from the road, boast beautiful golden sand. To find the beach, you must halt upon spotting the Dragon’s Cave tavern and tread the narrow path leading to the sea, a short 3-minute walk. The secluded area is a perfect spot for families, however, it is not suitable for naturism as many locals frequent this place with their families. For more seclusion, you could stroll to the nearby coves to the west. The beaches are encompassed by towering cliffs and smooth white limestone rocks, with sandy seabeds.

In the absence of a car, you could avail the bus service that runs between Ierapetra and Goudouras, keeping in mind that the frequency of buses is not high. Therefore, ensure you are well-versed with the exact routes before embarking on your journey.

The cliffs in the area offer healthful clay that can be mixed with water and applied to the skin, serving as a natural spa when left to dry.
