A beauty outside this world

Every summer I try to spend some time in Amorgos, this truly magnificent island that has literally stolen my heart. When I first visited Amorgos, some years ago, I was impressed by the beautiful scenery and picturesque atmosphere. Now every summer I want to combine my holidays in Cyclades with few days in Amorgos.

A walk in the village of Chora is just perfect for your first acquaintance with the locals of Amorgos, you will walk a labyrinth of alleys, see the old traditional houses and some really cute old fashioned kafenia, where people meet during the day. Chora is ideal for strolls and it is worth exploring its medieval character. The white color in combination with the steep landscape of Amorgos creates a unique scenery that can really captivate you. The monastery of Hozoviotissa is a must visit, the entire architecture and the view from there are fascinating to watch. When you get up to the Monastery, you will try the best rakomelo ever, especially made for visitors by the monks!

Amorgos is pretty unspoiled from tourism and most of the beaches are quite isolated. I personally love Agios Pavlos and some small beaches where you go on foot. Levressos is absolut paradise, you might feel a little lonely at times but if you arrive early in the morning, you will have the beach for yourself. The nightlife of Amorgos is romantic. There are a couple of clubs on the island, but as I am too old for them, I can't say if they are good or not. For the nights, I prefered a nice dinner by the sea, a short walk along the beach and many hours of moonwatching from the hotel balcony.

We stayed in Filoxenia at the end of August 2011, together with our two daughters. Very polite owners, clean rooms, very nice view. Honest hotel run by honest people.

We must say that its a really beautiful pension with cosy and comfortable rooms.The service was quick and helpful.Clean towels and sheets every day.The hostess Mrs Moscha is a very friendly and talkative young woman.
What helped us most was that the rooms are isolated from all the noise but 2minutes from Chora on foot!!
We had a great time and somehow every guest of the pension in every room one way or another became friends!! Like a big family!!!
We strongly recommend it to all Amorgos Lovers!!

After visiting Amorgos Island for the first time in my life, I really was amazed about this beautiful piece of land, green and blue. I also did some geocaching there (at least 20 caches). I'm sure I will be ack again soon.

This island is something else! We spend there a whole week (me and family) eating, going out and swimming in the beautiful beaches. We rented a great apartment in Chora, very comfortable and with magical view. Chora is a small village with narrow pathways and lovely windmills. I loved the architecture of the houses and the lordly buildings with fine decoration. We visited Egiali beach, one of the most popular in the island. It has amazing waters and great fish taverns.

Agia Anna and Paradisia were ideal for me, small and isolated with crystalline waters. Luckily most of the beaches are situated near Chora and they are easily reachable by car. Visitors also shouldn't miss the Monastery of Hozoviotissa located in a beautiful landscape against the rocks. Although apart from this monastery and the castle, Amorgos has few sights to see, it is still a very interesting place with natural beauty.

A lovely and peaceful island in the centre of the Aegean. The most fabulous thing on Amorgos is the scenery. No doubt why I've heard so good words about this island and why people want to go back over and over again. Chora is a beauty with all those labirynth streets and the coffee tables on the sun! Some spots really gave gorgeous views to the blue sea. And the sky was so bright, so clean, so cloudless. Take the walk from Chora to the Monastery and you will love it. Going up the stairs to the monastery can be a bit tiring on a hot day, but worth the effort. Our room was in Agios Pavlos by the sea, but we had rented a motorbike which make our vacations a lot easier. Buses in Greece are generally not very trustful, and usually they are packed especially in summer, so a motorbike is the cheapest and more convenient next solution. Katapola was also nice and if you walk a bit behind the cliffs, you will find amazing small beaches where you can be absolutely alone. Aegiali is nice but mostly for the evenings, because it has lots of beach bars and lounge cafes along the beach. Drive around Amorgos and you will discover fabulous small villages with friendly old people.
