At Tsoukalia, a pebbly beach south of Megali Amos, swimmers occasionally come across pieces of ancient ceramics, which must have been discarded before reaching the final stages of production. According to many archaeological researches, this beach used to host the ancient pottery workshops, which mainly produced amphorae to accommodate the wine trade. Some pieces of pottery found here date from 400 B.C. A large part of the surroundings of Tsoukalia beach has been appointed a protected archaeological site. The sand of the beach has a grayish coulour, with white pebbles and the waters are clear.
Tsoukalia Beach is situated in a bay surrounded by pine trees, on the western side of the island of Alonissos. You can access this beach (also by car) through a dirt path and most of the times it's pretty quiet. There are no sunbeds and umbrellas for rent and there are no other facilities (no tavern). Directly next to the beach stands a four stories high old windmill which survived in pretty good shape.
