Agioi Saranta

Approximately 3 kilometers away from Katapola, Agioi Saranta beach took its name from the homonymous chapel in the area. A tiny isolated pebbly cove with clear waters, a lively magnet for alternative summer breakers. It is best accessible by car following the road that leads to the ancient town of Minoa over the hill of Moutoula and then walking down a trail crossing Lefkes at the settlement of Agia Thekla (about 15 minutes).

Finikies

Finikies beach is situated approximately 3 kilometers from Katapola. A grandiose sweep of pebble and sand stretch right with crystal-clear waters before the archaeological site of Minoa (and prior to the beaches of Tyrokomos and Agioi Saranta). Finikies beach tends to be less touristy than nearby shores. It is best accessible by car following the road that leads to the ancient town of Minoa over the hill of Moutoula and then walking down a trail crossing Lefkes (about 20 minutes).

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.

Nikouria Beaches

Nikouria is a small uninhabited island with 3 remote and underdeveloped sandy shores located approximately 5 kilometers away from Aegiali facing Agios Pavlos beach. Getting here, in order to explore the crystal-clear blue waters, involves a 10 minute trip by boat (departing every half hour from Agios Pavlos - itineraries usually start after the 15th of June and cost 4 euros). During the peak of summer, on one of these beaches, you can even enjoy cocktails from a random beach bar.

Syrma

Syrma is located next to the famous beach of Agia Anna, and is accessible via a hiking path that begins on the right side of the parking lot following the canteen. Once you get there, you will be greeted by a beautiful scenery of crystal-clear waters, including two big rock formations that separate the pebble beach in two sections.

Sparti

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).

Hochlakas

Hochlakas is an isolated pebble beach stretched on the northwest side of Aegiali, next to Psili Ammos. With crystal-clear waters and no infrastructure this shoreline is accessible on foot, a-45-minute hike from Aegiali or a-25-minute walk from the parking lot at Levrosos, either by boat from Aegiali to Psili Ammos and then a short 10-minute walk.
