    Very clean and excelent service
    We spent 6 days in Amorgos at the Galaxy Pension and we couldn't feel more welcomed.

    We booked two rooms with balcony. The rooms were very clean, the staff at the reception was extremely helpful and in our opinion a perfect place to stay few days at very afordable prices.#

    Even though the pension is no more than 5 min by foot from the ferry, we were picked up by the staff of the pension.

    The island is beautifull and excelent to relax.

    I truly recommend this pension.

    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.
