Ammouliani island is a very remarkable place in Halkidiki because it’s the only inhabited island in the region. Perfectly nestled in-between Sithonia and the Mount Athos peninsula. Ammouliani has developed to become one of the most sought-after holiday destination. “Ammos” means sand in Greek, the islands coastline consists mainly of layers of sand coves with crystal clear, turquoise water. The first inhabitants of the islands arrived in 1925 as refugees from the Asian minor and brought with them their precious culture, food, and rare objects that are currently being exhibited in the islands folklore museum.
The Drenia islands is located south of Ammouliani and it contains a few uninhabited islands that offer organized and isolated beaches. Renting a boat is a mostly sought after experience in Ammouliani, it’s the only way to get here unless you take the excursion on the day boat from Ouranopolis. This is so soothing as the boat cuts through the amazingly calm turquoise water like knife through butter.
The beaches on Ammouliani vary from small hidden coves and still waters good for swimming to large sandy stretches of sand open to the sea with plenty of waves crushing the sea lines – making it a paradise for surfers, both pros and amateurs alike. There are at least 11 organized beaches, like; Karagatsia, Alikes, Ammos, plus other sandy coves which can be self-discovered if you are the adventurous type.
