Yes, its not the typical beachside! It is rather small, with no some many spaces to find shadow BUT ITS PERFECT! Take your own umbrella, bring a lot of water and enjoy the perfect water you will find. The scenery is like from a movie!

Seems to be the only beach on the island that has a coffee shop and restaurant nearby. Easy to get to, just outside Chora.

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.

Maybe with such a review we contribute to the loss of what we loved in this beach, meaning the quiet atmosphere and the fact that it is not crowded at all! However it was by far our favourite day on the beach in Ambeli, with...More

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.

This is a beautiful beach and well worth a visit for a swim but it is very small. A dozen people and it's full. If you go here or to any beaches take everything u need for the day as there are no shops at...More
