Agios Pavlos

The beach is located about 11 kilometers from Chora, approximately 9 kilometers from Aegiali and around 17 kilometers from the main port of Amorgos, Katapola. Clumsily put together with a sugary line of sand and a rocky seabed with transparent emerald waters, Agios Pavlos is divided into two different beaches. There is only one tavern nearby, however you will head to this beach anyway, to hop on ferry to get to the unspoiled sands of Nikouria. Agios Pavlos is easily accessible via local buses, running frequently during summer. Lastly, you can take a short walk to reach another powdery strip of sand, lying next to Agios Pavlos.

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.

Agia Anna

The most emblematic beach of Amorgos, Agia Anna, it’s sheltered under the homonymous scenic chapel and though it bears a tiny slice of coast (there's no little chance of playing beach-mat overlap with strangers), there’s no denying about its reputation. Located about 3 kilometers from Chora and approximately 1,5 kilometers from the Monastery of Hozoviotissa, Agia Anna beach is a perfect crescent of fine pebble sand backed by small rugged caves protecting a calm lagoon of crystal-clear sea, ideal for snorkeling around and exploring. Celebrated worldwide by a memorable scene on Luc Besson’s cult movie The Big Blue, people flock there to marvel at the raw beauty of the Monastery of Hozoviotissa, whereas solitary sun lovers relax and dive from the rocks around the beach. It can be reached on foot from Chora (30min/walk along the path from Kalogeriko), or via car until the parking lot and from there walking down the stairs to the shore. Also, there is a bus service running regularly during summer period.
