Fodor's Expert Review Pachia Ammos Beach
Secluded in a cove east of Tinos Town, Pachia Ammos is named for its thick sand, which has a unique green hue that complements the surrounding short shrub hills that roll into the turquoise blue sea. It is completely undeveloped, and getting to the beach requires a 15- to 30-minute walk on an unmarked path, which isn't ideal for flimsy flip-flops while balancing your beach necessities. The effort, however, is rewarded with basking in one of the prettiest and most peaceful places on the island. To get there, drive 10 km (6 miles) on the main road east toward Ayios Ioannis Beach and turn off at the signs for Pachia Ammos. Park off the road and walk over the hill to your right; the beach isn't obvious right away but follow one of several trails and you'll see it appear before you. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; swimming.
