Ligaria beach is beautifully situated in an almost closed bay surrounded by mountains.The entire beach is covered with coarse sand, but the western part of the beach is best. Here, the clear water is often calmer and there is more sand in the water. The eastern part has more stones and flat rocks in the water.There are several sections with sun lounges and sunshades just as there are showers along the beach. The beach is normally supervised by a lifeguard.During weekends, many locals visit the beach and then it may be difficult to find a parking space.
Amoudara was developed for tourism and is popular with all. The resort contains enough shops, bars and restaurants to satisfy most tastes, plus a couple of clubs. Because of its central location and proximity to Heraklion`s extensive public transport services, it is often used as a base from which to explore other parts of the island. There is a congregation of touristy shops around the larger hotels but no matter where you stay, you are never more than a stone`s throw from some type of shop. The resort is still developing with new places opening all the time.
