Among the most beautiful islands of Greece, Amorgós

An arid, desolate island, referred to as a “naked island” for its lack of vegetation and apparent little life. However, everything is compensated by an intense blue sea that contrasts with the arid landscapes. The Amorgos Island is in the Aegean Seaand is one more of the endless collection of idyllic islands of Greece.

Amphithoe

With just 1,800 inhabitants, two ports and 112 kilometers of coastline, it is easy to imagine excessive tranquility. With a maximum elevation of 821 meters asl, the island is also famous for its monasteries and churches. No less than 360 Byzantine chapels, and a monastery, among the most impressive in Greece for being hanging from a steep cliff for almost a thousand years. (A monastery that we already reviewed in another entry)

Amorgos It is the easternmost island of the Cyclades. A wonder that, in the style of the blog, is better explained in a collection of images:

To get to the island, you can embark on boarding or regular flights, especially from Athens. There are two picturesque and relaxed towns where you can base yourself to explore the island, Katapola Y Aigiali. What awaits is an uncontaminated island, bays, mountains, cliffs and the blue sea that stretches out like a pool.
