Agia Anna

The most emblematic beach of Amorgos, Agia Anna, it’s sheltered under the homonymous scenic chapel and though it bears a tiny slice of coast (there's no little chance of playing beach-mat overlap with strangers), there’s no denying about its reputation. Located about 3 kilometers from Chora and approximately 1,5 kilometers from the Monastery of Hozoviotissa, Agia Anna beach is a perfect crescent of fine pebble sand backed by small rugged caves protecting a calm lagoon of crystal-clear sea, ideal for snorkeling around and exploring. Celebrated worldwide by a memorable scene on Luc Besson’s cult movie The Big Blue, people flock there to marvel at the raw beauty of the Monastery of Hozoviotissa, whereas solitary sun lovers relax and dive from the rocks around the beach. It can be reached on foot from Chora (30min/walk along the path from Kalogeriko), or via car until the parking lot and from there walking down the stairs to the shore. Also, there is a bus service running regularly during summer period.
