View of the Beach at Pacheia Ammos looking West 

Pacheia Ammos is a small village (pop. about 500) on a beach lined with several restaurants and cafes, most of which have 

Internet. The water is potable. 

The village is about a 1 1/2 hour drive east of Heraklion and a 10-minute drive from Gournia. Faster on the new highway!

On the main road through the village there are two small general stores (basic groceries and supplies), a

post office, a bakery, and a new cafe. There is no bank, ATM, or pharmacy. There is one bus stop.
