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).
Levrosos is nearby Aegiali beach facing the homonymous port of Amorgos. A traditionally nudist place, the beach offers a string of sand, crystal waters, and plentiful trees for shade. The beach is accessible on foot in about 20 minutes following a path that begins at the end of Aegiali beach. Alternatively, it can be reached by boat or by car following the road that leads to the village of Tholaria (passing a small parking lot and walking down a trail of about 100 meters to the beach). On the beach there is only a canteen.
