Mouros (one of the best beaches in Amorgos) is an electric-blue water beach about 15 kilometers from Chora, 18 kilometers from Katapola and 32 kilometers from the port of Aegiali. The relatively small pebbly beach area is surrounded by two caves, rippling clear waters and outcropping rocks for diving. Best visited by car through a 2km drive on a gravel road that starts at the homonymous settlement, where you can leav your car in a small parking lot, and start walking on a relatively steep downhill trail with steps of about 400 meters. The café-bar above the beach offers some of the best views on Aegean Sea, and there is also a traditional tavern.


Katapola is found at the heart of the island and in front of the homonymous village, about 6 kilometers away from Chora and around 22 kilometers from the other port of Amorgos, Aegiali. With a series of trees providing natural shade and just a few powdery footsteps away from a plethora of laid-back cafes and restaurants, this beach is easily accessible by car or via the local buses that are running on a daily basis from Chora and Aegiali.

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.

Aegiali beach

Aegiali beach is situated in front of the homonymous seaside settlement, about 15 kilometers from Chora and approximately 22 kilometers from Katapola. With the longest coastline in the whole island (one km), some part of the beach is semi-organized offering sun umbrellas and lounge chairs on a fine white sand, calm and swallow waters for novice swimmers. The beach is also a magnet for families with toddlers, and there’s even a handful of cafes, restaurants and beach bars to explore.
