Liveros bay

A semi-hidden small pebbly light blue cove, Liveros is lying in the homonymous inlet, approximately 24 kilometers from Katapola, about 19 kilometers from Chora and around 40 kilometers from Aegiali. Once popular - it was used as the main filming location for Luc Besson’s movie, now it is not possible to swim in it due to litter coming from the otherwise scenic wreck of Olympia that lies just offshore. It best accessed by car and then, following the path starting from the main road (a-15 minutes walk). It is also advisable not to wear flip-flops.

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.


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).
