General information

Katapola is located in the middle of Amorgos Island. The area is one of the island's most visited seaside resorts. The port of Katapola is the main port of the island and one of the finest natural harbors in the Aegean Sea. One can have a glimpse of numerous sailing boats anchoring for shelter there.

The beach at Katapola in Amorgos is a regular sandy shore. It stretches through three settlements: Katapola, Rahidi and Xilokeratidi. For the sunbathing tourists, the bay has perfect shade, which serves as a welcome relief from the blazing sun during the peak summer.

While in Katapola, one can visit the nearby ancient settlement of Minoa, which has some archaeological spots open to tourists throughout the year.

    Enjoy some peace in Katapola
    The beach of Katapola is very close to Chora, which is the only village with some descent life on Amorgos. So, if you want to find an accommodation on Amorgos, better go in Katapola which is also the port, as Aegiali, the other most popular spot on the island, is far from Chora. The beach of Katapola is not much organized. There are only a couple of taverns close by. You also have to bring your own umbrella, but that is how almost all beaches on Amorgos work. The coastline of Katapola though is pretty long and clean. It is a perfect beach to enjoy some peace and picturesqueness.
