Being the largest beach near Syvota
, Mega Ammos somewhat justifies its name ("big sand") but in fact is 100 meters long and 30 meters wide. It is 1.5 km away from the village, in a cove close to the coastal road. The beach is wide, with sand and pebbles, and there are beach facilities like sunbeds, parasols, changing cabins and pedalo boats to rent. Two restaurants can be found right on the beach and there are also two hotels around.
There is a road train from Syvota which goes to Mega Ammos and the beaches of Mikri Ammos
and Agia Paraskevi
a few times daily (during the summer).
