Amoudara holidays take you to the north coast of the Greek island of Crete, the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean. It is a scenic island with mountain ranges from east to west, fertile plateaux, rivers, lakes, gorges and caves, as well as sandy beaches and rocky coves. Amoudara is a modern resort a few miles from Heraklion with a long sandy beach. Its guarantee of sunshine, its warm clear waters and recreational activities and facilities give it wide appeal. Whatever your age, a low cost Amoudara holiday is sure to satisfy.
Amoudara is the perfect choice for beach lovers. This Blue Flag beach, with its long stretch of sand, slopes gently into warm Mediterranean waters, ideal for small paddlers and less confident swimmers. A variety of water sports are offered including fun inflatables dragged at speed through the water, snorkelling and diving, water and jet skiing, and kite surfing. If you want a change of scene, take the local bus to Karteros beach which is less crowded.
Even if you have no interest in ancient history, you can't fail to be impressed by the island's archaeological sites. Be sure to visit the Minoan ruins at Knossos where there are excavations of the palace of King Minos that existed in all its glory, three thousand five hundred years ago.
Amoudara hotels and apartments provide good accommodation and service. There are so many restaurants, tavernas, bars and pubs, all serving such a wide variety of food that they are sure to please all palates. Whether you feel like ordering traditional island food or are looking for your familiar Sunday roast, you will be equally satisfied. The same is true for nightlife. There are lively clubs and discos for those seeking a party atmosphere, but there are just as many family friendly venues where you can relax over a drink and enjoy a meal. There are ample opportunities for shopping but if more is needed, take the local bus to Heraklion.

Several low cost airlines fly to Heraklion Airport from many regional airports. You can check on the Cheeky Trip web site to see if there is a service from your own local airport.
