“Small sandy beach near Damnoni, not organised and fairly isolated. Next to Kleisidi, you will meet the amazing nudist beach of Small Ammoudi or Ammoudaki. The turquoise waters and spectacular white coarse sand, make this small beach popular destination for nudists. Moreover, on the beach there is a small canteen, which also provides umbrellas and sunbeds. At the west side of the beach, you can swim till a marine cave, where the sun rays make the color of the water vivid blue. The seabed is sandy and you can step there. At the other end, there is an under water hole that connects Ammoudaki with Kleisidi. So you can get from one beach to another only with a splash!”
