Famous for its picturesque environment and the relaxing beaches, Amorgos is an amazing island to relax. It became famous to the world when scenes of the movie The Big Blue by Luc Besson were filmed there. Away from mass tourism even in high season, Amorgos is an island off the beaten track. The most important sightseeing in Amorgos is the Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa, an amazing monastery constructed against a rocky mountain. A short walk from this monastery leads to the small bay of Agia Anna, a secluded beach with exotic water. Do not miss a visit to the picturesque village of Chora, with the traditional windmills and the paved paths. Amorgos is also a nice place for hiking and hiking paths lead to many nice beaches.
