Chryssi Ammos in western Andros, between the port of Gavrio and the cosmopolitan Batsi, is one of the most beautiful and popular beaches on the island. It is one of the first organized beaches of Andros, attracting dozens of holidaymakers on a daily basis.
Chryssi Ammos – Dreamy sandy beach
The characteristic golden colour of the sandy beach with its fine powdery sand gave the beach its name. Combined with the wonderful turquoise waters, it has given it an unprecedented glamour. Moreover, another thing that makes Chryssi Ammos in Andros so attractive is the ease of approach.
It is located on the main road leading from the port to Chora, just 2 kilometers from Gavrio, after the huge beach of Agios Petros, which has been very popular in recent years. The presence of the beach bar ranks Chryssi Ammos high in the preferences of young holidaymakers. However, the existence of the canteen and the easy accessibility to the sandy beach makes it very popular for family outings as well.
Also known as Psili Ammos
The beach is also known as Psili Ammos. Its location is an important advantage. The natural protection of the cove where it is located is hardly affected by the Aegean’s August winds. Chryssi Ammos, especially during the peak tourist season, and due to its short length, it is almost always full of holidaymakers from Greece and abroad.
