Amorgos

Amorgos is the most easterly of the Cycladic islands, and largest of the Small Cyclades, lying between Naxos and Astypalea.

It is a mountainous island whose many rocky cliffs, rugged natural beauty and the colours of the surrounding sea where featured in Luc Bessons film ‘The Big Blue’.

The island's irregular coastline hides hundreds of secluded little coves, where you can find your own private paradise, and snorkel in sparkling waters, or laze away on a beach not crowded with beach umbrellas.

  

Amorgos is also amongst the most traditional islands in the Aegean, with a permanent resident population engaged in traditional farming. Criss-crossed by walking trails, Amorgos is ideal for trekking, while its trademark attraction, Hozoviotissa monastery, is one of the most dramatically set in all of Greece *As featured on GETAWAY.


Amorgos is a perfect destination for those looking for unspoiled nature, genuine Greek hospitality and traditional culture.  On this island the Cycladic way of living is complemented by the dramatic beauty of the landscape, which offers guests a total and unique experience.
