Fishing boats with full nets
Amorgos was exactly what we needed for our vacations: peaceful, nice and quiet. Most of all beaches, I liked Aegiali. This is a small village at the northern side of the island with a quiet cozy beaches. You will love the taverns and the meals in Aegiali and you will see many fishing boats to come with their nets full of fish and lobsters. Aegiali is also a nice location to stay because it is one of the two ports of Amorgos. The only problem is that there are not many hotels in Amorgos and you will have difficulty to book a room, so do it early. A rented scooter will make things easier for transportations. Local bus is horrible and totally untrustful. With a scooter, you can go to the Monastery of Hozoviotissa and Chora. Wear a dress in Hozoviotissa because the monks are strict with the dressing code.
