Platia Ammos literally means "broad sand", referring to a wide sandy beach. The word says it all, this is a typical Greek fishing village, on Kythera’s far north with a stunning beach. Platia Ammos is found 30 kilometres from Chora, in a beautiful bay and some steps away you could almost touch the Peloponnese. The distance to the Peloponnese is actually only 11 kilometres. In the village you’ll see traditional houses, quaint shops and some good typical Greek ouzeri. On this popular beach and on the slopes of the adjacent hills there are rooms to let, apartments and some hotels. Platia Ammos can easily become your vacation heaven, ideal for family stays, a natural “pool” for endless hours of swimming, a place to enjoy total relaxation and peace.
