Kato Akrotiri

Kato Akrotiri is lying next to the port of Katapola, almost at the point where the boat is moored. Facing the settlement of Xylokeratidi village, it is a sandy stretch of shoreline with swallow waters. It is easily accessible on foot from the port as well as by car or via the local buses that run frequently during summer to and from Chora/Aegiali.


Katapola is found at the heart of the island and in front of the homonymous village, about 6 kilometers away from Chora and around 22 kilometers from the other port of Amorgos, Aegiali. With a series of trees providing natural shade and just a few powdery footsteps away from a plethora of laid-back cafes and restaurants, this beach is easily accessible by car or via the local buses that are running on a daily basis from Chora and Aegiali.


Laying nearby the port of Katapola, Plakes got its name from the plethora of stony slabs embedded into the sea floor. For gloriously unspoiled wilderness, nude bathing and deep diving, Plakes rank among the finest beaches in the island. It is accessible either by boat (running regularly in the summer from the port of Katapola), or on foot (walking from Katapola or Maltezi beach).


Maltezi is located very close to the port of Katapola and nearby Agios Panteleimonas. This sprawling pebbly beach with the turquise is like a chill-out lounge for the sunbathers of Amorgos bearing them sunbeds, umbrellas and a loud dancing beach bar. It is accessible either on foot following the well-marked hiking path through Xylokeratididi (approximately 40 minutes) or by boat (departing from Katapola/running every half an hour during high season).

Agios Panteleimonas

The pebbly beach of Agios Panteleimonas, that is sheltered under the homonymous chapel, is located just a breath away from Katapola. A tiny stretch of fine pebbles with seductive crystal-clear waters amidst reefs capturing the attention of those who love diving. It is accessible on foot straight from Katapola (half an hour hike) or by boat (from Maltezi) and then walking about 5 minutes.

Tris Ierarches

Tris Ierarches is a crescent inside the bay of Katapola at the settlement of Xylokeratidi and is sheltered under the homonymous chapel, nearby a cemetery. Devoid of people this pebbly beach offers great views. It is easily accessible by car or via the local buses that run from and to Chora frequently during high season. Alternatively, you can get the bus from Aegiali and walk towards Xylokeratidi.
