In this port captains used to load their sail boats with local products, such as Vinsanto, the famous Santorini wine, so the buildings were used for storing goods.

During 1970, the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) decided to restore several buildings in Oia –and also 16 buildings in Ammoudi which were severely damaged from the 1956 earthquake. At first, between 1978-1980, they restored six of them situated in the inner road of the bay. Some infrastructure work was also done, such as the 800-metre long pedestrian street leading to the small church of Aghios Nikolaos (Saint Nicholas).

The asphalt road connecting Oia to Ammoudi was constructed in 1991.
Nowadays, most people come to Ammoudi to eat at the fish taverns by the seaside, or swim at the inlet with the tiny pebbles. For a quick swim you can also try the rocks behind the lighthouse or rent a boat to the next –equally small– beach of Armeni, or Aghios Nikolaos, where the water is really crystalline.


  • To access Ammoudi apart from the asphalt road you can use the steps from Oia.
  • From Ammoudi boats will take you to Nea Kameni and Therassia island.
  • diving center also operates in the area.
