Chalara, set next to Sparti, is a quite inaccessible beach to visit. With its white pebbled sand and a series of plates under its dramatic waters, is one of the most scenic beaches in Amorgos. It might be difficult to reach, but upon arrival, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning beach and may even have it all to yourself. You should not forget to pack at least a bottle of water and wear sneakers or athletic shoes. The beach is accessible via boat, either hiking from Potamos (for about an hour) or following the well-marked path that begins from Asfontilitis and drives towards the Aegean Sea.


Sparti beach is in the eastern part of the island, tucked inside the homonymous bay and a steep-sided ravine of 500 meters high. In other words, this is a tiny stretch of bone-white sand and emerald-blue water in which the sun sets over the striking mountains. The beach is only accessible via the ferry that cruises around the island of Amorgos during high season (summer).
