Chora is the capital of the island and is located in its mainland at a height of 400m. It has a Venetian castle “Kastro”, some very old windmills and of course the village has a very well preserved traditional architecture with whitewashed cubic houses and narrow alleys. During evening hours, it gets vivid due to the numerous restaurants, small taverns and bars. The central bus station of the island is located here and buses depart for various villages and beaches on the island. It is considered a convenient place to book your lodging if you want to avoid a car rental. Many rooms to let and guesthouses are found in the narrow streets and the small squares of Chora.
Our recommended Hotels in Chora:
Vorina Ktismata (luxury), Oasis of Amorgos, Panorama
Katapola is one of the ports of Amorgos. It is located on the west side of the island almost 6km down the hill from Chora. It is a quaint village with many hotels, restaurants and cafes. Its proximity to Chora as well as to Panagia Hozoviotissa monastery which is the landmark of the island, and the beaches of the west and south part of the island (Agia Anna, Maltezi and Plakes) is what makes Katapola a popular destination for accommodation. There is a bus stop here as well that can take you to Chora or other villages and beaches too. You can also take boat tours to some secluded beaches and a ferry for a day visit to nearby islands of the “Small Cyclades Complex”. In Katapola, you will find a plethora of hotels, rooms to let and there is a camping operation as well.
Our recommended Hotels in Katapola:
Amorgos Pearls (luxury), Villa Katapoliani, Aegean of Amorgos, Amorgion Hotel, Kaerati Apartments
Last but not least, Aegiali is the port of Amorgos which is located at the North of the island. Its distance from Chora is a 30-minute drive and has a very different setting.

Aegiali offers some luxury hotel options and is ideal for families travelling with children who want to stay in close proximity to a nice and organised beach.
