You can also find this little paradise called as Amoliani. This is an small island located in the area of Chalkidiki, Greece. It is only 120 km from famous Thessaloniki so you can definitely visit both places, while on vacation there. Ammouliani is  a part of the Stagira-Akanthos municipal unit.

The population of the island in 2011 was 547 people.

Ammouliani is small, quiet, and dreamy place. There are no disco clubs and noisy places. It is designed to be a relaxed place perfect for your rest.

The water there is perfectly clean without rocks. There are few gorgeous sandy beaches and you can find a coffee and something to grab for lunch on every beach.

You will definitely get that nostalgic feeling when you are leaving the island.



There are two of the most magical beaches I’ve ever seen there – Alykes beach and Megali Ammos beach.

We spent some really nice time on Alykes beach. There are free zones and there are also paid zones so you can choose whether to use their umbrellas and sunbeds or bring your own. There’s enough free space, especially if you have kids who love running and playing around.

Just to mention: When I say the umbrellas are paid I don’t actually mean you have to pay for them. They only need to order something from the beach bar and you can stay as long as you wish. It could be only a coffee for example.

We really enjoyed our short stay there and will definitely go back to enjoy this beauty again.

The second most gorgeous beach is called Megali Ammos and it is also amazing. We couldn’t see it but our friends send us a lot of pictures and videos from there. We will definitely add this beach for our next stay in Ammouliani. And I will definitely share a picture or two with you so you can also feel the magic from this beach.

What a view, right?!

This beach is more wild and filled with nature but as you can see there is a small part that’s covered with paid umbrellas and sunbeds.

Just to mention again: when I say the umbrellas are paid I don’t actually mean you have to pay to stay there. They only need you to order something from the beach bar and you can stay there as long as you wish. It could only be one coffee for example. But you are going to order something anyway if you love to stay on the beach the whole day.
