The successive beaches of Ammos, Afoti, and Vronti, within the bay of Pigadia are three excellent beaches, very close to the town of Pigadia, the capital of the island, well organized, with nice sand, very clean sea and sea sport facilities.
The small sandy beach of Ammoope (hole in the sand in Greek), or as it is better known, Mikri (small) Ammoope, is one of the loveliest beaches of the island, with light yellow sand and crystal clear sea. It is situated at a distance of 7 kilometers southern to Pigadia.
The well organized beach of Megali (“big”) Ammoope, or Votsalakia (“fine pebbles”), as it is better known due to the fine pebbles, is the most popular beach of the island, for all ages of visitors. It is situated at a distance of 6 kilometers southern to Pigadia, in front of the homonymous settlement.
Take the road to Amoopi and before you get there a dirt road, in good condition, to your right will lead you to Fokia (there is a sign). A small quiet beach awaits you with shallow waters, large pebbles, little shade, boats moored at the edge and a new hotel where you will find water and anything else you may need as there is also a snack bar.
