Ammoudia Beach

The place is located on a crescent-shaped bay with around 800 meters of sandy beach, the water of which appears turquoise to aquamarine blue depending on the time of day. The Acheron flows south of the bay and its fresh water lowers the salinity of the bay's seawater.

Ammoudia can be reached via the E 55 (between Igoumenitsa and Preveza ), from which a four-kilometer cul-de-sac leads to the town near Mesopotamos.

The oracle of the dead Nekromantion is about four kilometers away in Mesopotamos .

Ammoudia is the setting of the novel The Ouzo Oracle by Frank Schulz , where it is called Kouphala .
