Amopi is in a proper sense not a real village, rather a flourishing small tourist resort with tavernas, hotels and a mini market. Several package holidaymakers choose Amopi instead of Pigadia. Largely it depends on the nearness of good beaches and that it is "commuting" distance to Pigadia. Busses runs the 7 kilometres several times a day every day of the week. Taxis cost around 10 €.

There are three beaches to choose from at Amopi. The beach to the right of the peninsula with the church of Agii Apostoli, is quite a good beach, off the beach is a rocky island that is possible to swim to. The right beach is composed of pebbles mixed with pea-gravel. See a picture of the beach here. The beach to the left of the peninsula is a beautiful relatively shallow sandy beach with sparkling clear and inviting water. A family beach, in other words. Further to the left is a small beach known as Mikri Amopi. Above Mikri Amopi is a taverna with the same name.

Do you want to be a little by yourself, follow the coast as far east you can, there are two tiny beaches, as well as a really small strip of beach adjacent to a cool cave.

Almost everyone who stays in Amopi
have their accommodation arranged beforehand since most who stay here overnight have travelled on a package-holiday. But there is a lot to choose from even if you are travelling independently. Book hotels in Amopi here »
