Amargos stands in the seabed of the Aegean and seen from above takes the form of a dragon that stretches for about 30km. The archipelago is characterized by beaches, architecture and breathtaking landscapes.
A holiday in Amargos can be combined with Santorini and Astypalea.
The island can be easily reached by ferry from Athens (c.9 hours of navigation) or by hydrofoil from Mykonos and Santorini.
Amorgos is a quiet, mystical island, suitable for families with children, full of easily accessible pebble beaches, parking the car by the roadside. Obviously to discover the coast in complete tranquility and without stress, it is better to book a boat trip, visiting all the suggestive bays that this beautiful island holds, starting from Maltezi and then Gramvoussa and Nikouria. The charm of discovering the coast through a boat trip is definitely the best way to not suffer the summer heat and the scorching sun.
Other things to do in Amorgos are trekking and visiting the monasteries. Chozoviotissa Monastery is the main attraction together with the ancient Minoa. Trekking can be practiced among the many paths that run through the island, considering that until a few years ago the roads of the north were not paved and only passable on dirt tracks.
As for the nightlife is never crowded and unbridled, let yourself be enveloped by the rhythm that characterizes the locals of the island (go out quite late in the evening) after dinner walks and then sip some fresh cocktails in some charming bar.
The ideal would be to spend on the island at least a week, stopping in:
- Kato Meria,
- Chora and Aegiali.
