MORE ABOUT AMORGOS GREECE
Amorgos is located in the Aegean sea and belongs to the Cyclades islands group.
Despite being a quiet island, it became popular thanks to Luc Besson’s movie "The Big Blue", which was filmed there!
Boasting a mind-blowing natural landscape, minimal Cycladic architecture, mysterious caves, and fabulous beaches, it is one of the hidden gems of the Cyclades!
Untouched by mass tourism, Amorgos is the perfect holiday destination for those who seek privacy and tranquility and an equally good option for nature lovers!
The hiking trails that cross the island are perfect for exploring its nature, while the secluded beaches are ideal for naturists!
Chora, the island’s capital, is one of the most beautiful villages in the Cyclades.
It is located in the center of the island, insulated by rocky hills and it boasts a scenic setting! Wandering in Chora, you’ll come across traditional whitewashed houses with colorful shutters, narrow alleys, embellished with flowers, an imposing Venetian Castle, beautiful churches and little taverns. A stroll around the town is a dream!
When the night comes, head to the island’s traditional taverns to have shots of homemade "psimeni raki", a local alcoholic beverage and taste yummy local delicacies, such as "ladotyri" (local cheese), "kserotigana" (fried pies) and "patatato" (goat with potatoes).
The most popular sight on the island is Panagia Hozoviotissa, an impressive monastery, perched on a rocky cliff above the sea!
This 10th-century cliffside monastery boasts a wonderful traditional architecture, while it has a seductive view of the Aegean sea. It’s the perfect spot to watch the sunset from!
And what can we say about the beaches? They are simply gorgeous, with crystal clear waters and glistening sand.
The best are Mouros, Nikouria, Agios Pavlos, Agia Anna, Maltezi and more.
One thing is for sure: Amorgos will blow you away!
