It lays to the east of Naxos island and it covers an area of approximately 126 square kilometres. There are two ports on Amorgos, Katapola and Aegiali. The island is rocky and barren with fantastic sandy beaches forming as the rocks dive into the sea. Katapola is the capital of Amorgos and the island’s main tourist attraction is the Byzantine monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa, built in continuation with a steep rocky cliff.
Amorgos is a quiet travel destination, still undiscovered by the big tourism enterprises. It offers various accommodations such as hotels, rooms, studios and apartments. Early booking is advised for holidays during peak season (July 25 to August 20).
There is direct connection between Naxos and Amorgos with either Blue Star ferries or Express Skopelitis. They take 3 and 4 hours to get there respectively. Intermediate ports are Iraklia, Schinoussa, Koufonissi and Donoussa. Exact schedule and intermediate ports depend on the season.
