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).
Chalara, set next to Sparti, is a quite inaccessible beach to visit. With its white pebbled sand and a series of plates under its dramatic waters, is one of the most scenic beaches in Amorgos. It might be difficult to reach, but upon arrival, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning beach and may even have it all to yourself. You should not forget to pack at least a bottle of water and wear sneakers or athletic shoes. The beach is accessible via boat, either hiking from Potamos (for about an hour) or following the well-marked path that begins from Asfontilitis and drives towards the Aegean Sea.
