Ammes beach is in the south western part of Kefalonia
, in the Svoronata
area, right at the end of the airport runway. It’s around 10km south of Argostoli
the islands capital.
The beach has soft golden sand and is backed with some large rocks, the sand slopes steeply before getting to the water line but then remains shallow for some distance out making it good for youngsters to splash around in the shallows.
Ammes beach is small at just 100 meters long but there’s still room for 3 rows of sunbeds at the widest point. Due to it’s small size it can feel busy at peak times but you should still be able to find an area to enjoy.
There’s a small taverna serving food, drinks and even cocktails, there’s showers and toilets available as well as parking on the roadside above the beach but no water sports.
The location of Ammes beach means it’s great for plane spotters as they come in to land right over head, this makes it quite exciting or quite noisy depending on your point of view.
