Ampela Beach

Our current house swap in Syros is in the area called Ampela Beach, but the spelling is difficult as various road signs give various spellings. It is also known as Ambela beach, Apela beach and Abela beach.  So we take our pick when describing the area we live in.  Of course there is no way to describe our actual address as the road has no name and the house has no number, like so many on this island. The picture is of the beach at the bottom of our garden. There is a restaurant or, as the Greek say, Taberna, at the beach but as it is not yet high season, it is only open on weekends.
