Amorgos Island

There are few, if any, islands in Greece with a more dramatic landscape than the hammer-headed shaped island of Amorgos. Located to the south east of Naxos in the southern Cyclades, most of the island's coastline is sheer, unbroken cliff, a most impressive sight as your ferry inches in to the port of Aegiali.

Aegiali has all you need for a relaxing holiday on an unspoilt Greek Island. There are good sandy beaches; and plenty of welcoming tavernas and cafes, mini-markets and small tourist shops complete the picture. Your holiday on Amorgos need not centre entirely around Aegiali. There are a number of interesting trips, which will enable you to explore this fascinating yet little-known island. The possibility of boat trips around the island, essential to appreciate the tortured coastline, and a hop over to the neighbouring islet of Nikouria, where snorkeling and fishing are the recommended activities.

According to archaeological it seems that the island has been inhabited since the prehistoric days and that it had been one of the most important centers of Cycladic Civilization.
