My wife and I have been coming to this beach for a number of years now as its one of the best nudist beaches around. Yes you do get the odd textile now and again but everyone seems to 'co-exist' quite happily and the doughnut man makes his daily appearance right around lunchtime. Be sure to get there early for...

Although the street comes to end at the beach Amoudi, it's not really a dead end, on the contrary, to take to the water, swimming, and take the sun; the rocks are perfect sculpted by the sea, all this, and the breeze is an refinement for man's soul.

Walked to this beach from Plakias. Very quiet and sheltered. It was good snorkelling although sea rough the day we were there. Used by a dive company so knew it was an ok location.

My favourite beach in the Plakias area. Nice clear water, not a great deal of fish to see though. Oh and the trailer at the top serve great food meaning you don't have to go far for lunch or a beer.

We have explored many beaches in Greece and frankly, the snorkeling has been a bit disappointing but BOY were we delighted with Ammoudi. OK, yeah, it is not Hawaii and it's tropical fish but the water was crystal clear and there were fish everywhere. The cliffs on both sides are coated with sponge so you can snorkel right on the...

Nice but quite small. Drive over chania beach west end park there. It is quite steep so it is better to stay close to the sea. Good clean water.

Probably the best beach in the region, but unfortunately the sea was rough when we visited it and we did not have the chance to swim there. As locals told us, the sea is rough pretty much every day, so be aware of this fact, especially if you have young children with you.

Absolutely fantastic, small beach for nudists with sun beds and umbrellas. There is small bistro upstairs and toilet. Not very crowded, with very friendly atmosphere. I love this place!

day trip to this beach on a very windy day. We found a sheltered area next to a stream - the water was beautiful and clean - scuba class was there. Nice beach bar for snacks and drinks
