We went there starting from the village ano Maria. About 1 hour walk down, walking with 2 small children. Nice views. The bay is cosy but little place for shade. Snorkeling is ok but not spectacular.

I loved swimming in front of this beach, the water is so transparent and the water is not very deep. There is a cave nearby you can swim to. The beach is quite small but it is certainly worth it.

There is no sand in Ambeli, we sat on the rocks but we enjoy it so much! Perfect location for snorkeling. You have to take with you water and snaks because there is no shops.

This place is amazing! So romantic good for snorkeling and there are trees nearby so it is good also for some shadow. It has stones, no sand

This beach is totally dreamy! A short drive from the town of Chora and yet so secluded feeling. The water was lovely, even on a windy day the waves were minimal and we were kept safe from the wind in our little cove.

This small sweet private beach used to be only accessible by foot or boat. Now there is a "road" (emphasis on quotes). It is very rough. Regardless... it is lovely but tiny.

A small but extremely beautiful beach with crystal clear water. Accessible both by motorcycle and foot (approx. 30 min). One of the most beautiful beaches of Folegandros with small space to sit on though which can be expanded if the all around rocks are used....More
