Amouliani is a small island, of only a few square kilometers, but known for its beautiful sandy beaches and good windless weather, which is not typical for the islands. Although inhabited, it is dominated by untouched nature. The town of Amouliani itself has no city beach, but everyone else is close by. Most beaches are sandy and you can reach them on foot or by local “taxi” – a trailer pulled by a donkey. One way ticket price is 2 €.
The most beautiful and famous beach on the island is Alikes. It is about 2.5km from the dock and can be reached by foot, car or horse-drawn carriage from the city. The beach is about 1 km long and the sea is a beautiful light blue color, which is rarely seen. The beach itself is located in a natural cove, with little waves, and the depth of the sea is ideal because the slope is very small and children can safely swim and play even at 10 meters from the coast.
There are several beach bars and restaurants offering a wide range of ready meals, menu dishes and seafood specialties. The beach is urbanized, with parasols and sun loungers (no charge if you order a drink). The most famous bar is the “Savana” which is located at the very end of the beach and has a very original ambience since it is partly in the rock. The sea is crystal clear, fine sand both on the coast and in the water, shallow for children and a dock for jumping. There is enough space for visitors with their own equipment, and there is also a restaurant “Metohi” on the beach that belongs to the campsite.
Agios Georgios beach is about 3.5 km from the pier. This beach is quite long and the most beautiful part belongs to the cafe. This part has a great natural shade, shallow water is the longest here, and the road does not go very close to the beach. To the left and right of this cafe there are places for visitors with their own equipment.
Megali Amos is also a beautiful beach with gradual depth and crystal clear sea. The left side of the beach, facing the sea, belongs to the cafe in the thick shade. The beach cafe has loungers and cozy canopies, and to the left of the cafe is a free section for those with all the equipment. Megali Amos beach is located on the east side of Amouliani island, just behind Agios Georgios beach. From here, there is a beautiful view of the Drenia islands and the mountains of the Athos peninsula. It is a popular sandy beach with coarse sand, with several amenities. You can rent parasols and deck chairs and there is a tavern near the beach.
The next beach we would recommend is Karagatsi, on the west side of Amouliani. It is a landscaped beach, interesting because it is surrounded by high rocks. It’s a very quiet place, especially in the evenings where you can relax and watch the sunset.
There is a canteen on the beach – a cafe where you can order drinks and some food. Deck chairs are free of charge. There is free space on the left side of the beach to set up your gear and bring your own food and drink if you like. The depth is gradual, the sea clear, and parking from the beach mostly in the shade.
The islands’ beauty, impeccably clean sea and paradise beaches, fantastic fish specialties and friendly residents bring more and more tourists to Amouliani every year.
The beach in Jerisos is considered one of the most beautiful beaches on Athos. There are no crowds and it is an ideal place for a holiday with children. The sea is warm, even at the beginning of the season. The promenade next to the beach is very nicely decorated, and next to the trail is a lovely tree-lined palm tree. There are many cafes along the beach where you can rent a deck chair and the rest of the beach is free, so you can place your umbrella and towel where you want. The beaches around Jerisos are beautiful, less visited, and lovers of solitude can enjoy.
Just before Jerisos, 2km before the center from the direction of Olimpiada, there is a very nice Kakoudia beach. This beach is very easy to reach and after you get off the main road to the coast, go forward about 100 meters and turn right, you will reach the beach itself. Kakoudia is a wide and long beach, with gradual depth and golden yellow sand. It usually has no crowds and no amenities, so be sure to bring your equipment, food and water with you. The crystal clear water and sand are beautifully combined with the carved rocks, which is why this beach is famous. The beach is not organized and there are no deck chairs and parasols or a tavern, and the parking space is large enough to accommodate a large number of bathers.
On the other side of the finger, about 6 km from Jerisos, is Xiropotamos Beach known for its fine and white sand. It can be reached by car in just ten minutes. If you prefer swimming in the shallow sea, then this beach is the ideal choice. When the wind is strong in Jerisos, then tourists go to this beach and there is significantly less waves and wind.
What certainly adorns Nea Roda is the extremely clear sea and the beautiful sandy beach that has the Blue Flag of the Mediterranean. The natural landscape blends in with the beautiful and clean sea, the wide sandy beach and many other interesting places. You can practice water and sand sports here, and for fishing lovers this place is a real little paradise.
Legend Beach – Wet Dreams is located about 500 meters before Nea Roda. It is a beach with very fine sand, lighter in color, which makes the color of the sea light blue. The beach has a very long shallow so it is ideal for young children. The beach itself is dominated by a large bar and most of the beach is landscaped and belongs to it, but on both sides there is ample free space for visitors with their own equipment. Drink prices are affordable, and free lounge chairs are available from bar. The sea is very beautiful, turquoise-blue and translucent. The beach is right next to the road and next to it there is a place where you can park your car.
On the other side of Nea Roda, towards the Holy Mountain, there are two famous beaches: Voulitsa, smaller and completely under the umbrellas and deck chairs and the other Komitsa, very long and mostly available to visitors with their own equipment.
After the picturesque fishing village of Nea Roda, you’ll discover one of the bay’s best sandy beaches – Voulitsa Beach, which stretches between two green hills, just like all the other beautiful beaches in the area. The beach has a bar that is open all day, organized by deck chairs, parasols, so quality entertainment is guaranteed. Above all, it is without too much traffic and is suitable for all-day enjoyment.
Komitsa beach is located 4 km from Nea Roda and is considered one of the best beaches on Athos. Komitsa is actually two beaches divided by the cape, one organized and one unorganized. The Komitsa Organized Beach is 800 meters long, wide and with coarse sand. In the west there is a bar, a tavern, a playground for children and parking. The deck chairs are free of charge and are free of charge. The sea here is very nice and clear, clear blue.
In front of the campsite there are deck chairs that come with a drink, and the campsite has a restaurant and lawn area that is ideal for children. There is also a parking space in the hinterland of the beach.
The city’s main beach is a long stretch of sand stretching from the harbor. You can also choose from nearby clean city beaches or small picturesque bays. One of the main features of Ouranopolis is precisely the peace that reigns in it, which will give rest to all visitors worn out from daily life. This part of Greece does not guarantee a crazy night out, and is chosen by those who want beautiful sandy beaches, hidden coves like a fairy tale and the vast sea ahead. It generously rewards each visitor with their natural beauty, harmoniously combining mountain and sea.
In addition to the city’s beautifully landscaped beaches, there are numerous small, wild beaches in and around Ouranoupolis, which is why there are almost no crowds in this place. And most of the landscaped beaches belong to the hotel complexes that this part of Athos is famous for. What you will surely do, at least once during your vacation, with some luck, will have the opportunity to see while you are in Ouranoupolis are dolphins, which is a clear sign that it is a very clear sea.
The city beach in the Olympics itself is usually filled with local weekend tourists, Greeks who live in the area and want to spend a few days at sea. This beach is long and sandy, but the entrance to the sea is a problem if you are in a place where there are plenty of sea urchins, so choose a good entrance to the sea or use a concrete dock, from which the water is about 1.5 meters deep.
The beaches around the Olympics are among the most beautiful, not only in Athos but throughout Chalkidiki. We would recommend that you make sure to visit Babylon Beach, Cuba (Against Ammoudia) and Zugla.
The beach at Olympics is long and sandy and never too crowded. She has been awarded the Blue Flag for Quality for years in a row.
Proti is the beach with white sand and located just 1 km from the Olympics. It is a beach located below the ancient Stagira, the birthplace of Aristotle, sandy, without shade, and not as shallow as other beaches.
Zougla is the smallest beach has arrived and there is almost no place on it and almost the whole beach is covered with deck chairs. It is located in a relatively narrow bay, surrounded by lush pine forests. There are interesting rocks on the left and right sides of the beach.
Babylon is the most visited beach in the vicinity of Olimpiada because it is big enough, it is about 300 meters long and about 50 meters wide, so that nobody bothers anyone. On the beach there is a beach volleyball net, shower, nice beach bar where you can refresh yourself with a cold drink and which has a clean and nice toilet and shower.
The beach itself is sandy, about 250 meters long and up to 40 meters wide. It has a gradual transition into depth. It is located in a bay and on the left there is a ridge that separates it from the city beach in Stratoni, while on the right is a rock that separates it from a wild and disorganized beach. In the background are palm trees and various trees belonging to the accommodation complexes already mentioned.
The beach is completely unregulated and has absolutely no facilities, so bring all the beach mobiles with you. You will only see these few smaller guesthouses, and if you need a shop or some refreshment, you can walk to the center of Stratton. There are no crowds on the beach, even in high season, because mostly guests come to stay in the surrounding houses, although there are also newcomers from Stratoni or some other places.
