Vamos is a semi-mountainous village located on the hills between the seaside resorts of Kalyves and Georgioupoli. It is one of the larger and most beautiful villages of Apokoronas area, developing eco-tourism all year round. It is also listed as a traditional settlement by the government and the houses are in the typical Cretan architecture. Excluding the main street which crosses the village, the others are quite narrow, making it impossible for two cars to pass at the same time.

In Vamos you can find taverns, bakery, mini markets, pharmacy and bank with ATM. The beaches of Kalyves and Almyrida are 15 min drive, at about 8 km. Near Vamos you can see the monastery of Agios Georgios with the ruins of its old olive oil factory, the small church of Theotokos dated 13 century, or some of the other traditional villages of the region like Gavalochori and Douliana.
