Ammoudi beach can be accessed either via the road (by car, mule, on foot) that leads to it or through the steps from Goulas, Oia. In the first case it takes 20-25 walking along the paved road to arrive at the bottom of the cliff. The route included a pretty view to the cliff and the sheer red rocks that looks to be on fire as they are lightened by the sun rays. In the second case, the 214 step-descending takes 10-15 minutes and it is not enough to enjoy the cliff view with the cave houses perched in it. The route seems short thanks to the scenery that surrounds the steps and to the sea one can see at the bottom. The steps lead to a small bay next to Ammoudi port where small boats and fish-caiques are ancored. There are afew traditional restaurants serving fresh fish at Ammoudi port. Given that it is close to Oia village, it is often full of people yet there several facilities for the swimmers.
