Ammoudi isn’t really a village, it’s a small, charming harbour with a handful of restaurants a couple of places to stay and some bars, all set in spectacular scenery. The harbour is surrounded by volcanic rock which gives a beautiful red and white backdrop and makes it such an appealing place to spend a few hours relaxing or enjoying a meal and some drinks.
There’s no beach in the harbour itself but there is one just off the main road that leads down to the harbour. It’s the usual black pebble beach that Santorini is famous for and there’s no facilities but it’s a welcome spot for taking a dip in the sea if the heat of the day gets too much for you.
Ammoudi is accessible by car via the old stone mines or by foot from Oia, there are 214 steps between Oia and Ammoudi, getting down is easy but getting back up, particularly after a nice meal and some local wine is not so easy.
Another popular thing to do from Ammoudi is to take one of the boat tours that are on offer from the harbour. They generally take you round the island and you get to see some of Santorinis stunning coast line.
