We sail at low speed, giving you the chance to take pictures of cape Kastri (the castle of ancient Arkesini) and the shipwreck there, sailing between Gramvoussa isle and Kalotaritissa. We sail along the coast of cape Timoni and the beach of Mouro reaching Agia Annaâs bay beneath the imposing monastery.
We make a short stopover so you can capture the shining star of our island which is the monastery of Holy Mary Hozoviotissa which stands out like a white dove sitting on the steep rocks of Amorgos. This is the location where the movie âThe Big Blueâ was shot and made Amorgos famous worldwide.
Next, we sail along on the southern port of Amorgos towards Chalara beach where we can admire and capture the wild beauty and view of the steep rocks and caves that magically reach the level of the sea.
At around noon we sail along Chalara beach which is considered the best-isolated beach in Amorgos. This is where we can see the âpetrified pirateâ. The myth says that many years ago pirates began their journey from the east to plunder Amorgos and the rich monastery of Holy Mary Hozoviotissa.
At this beach, we anchor for 2 hours and there you can enjoy swimming in the crystal clear waters of the âBig Blueâ, capture the âpetrified pirateâ and our crew will serve you an excellent lunch on deck along with organic local wine or any other drink of your choice.
At around 2 pm we set sail from Chalara at low speed along Sparti bay to the mines of Amorgos, where you can see and take pictures of the caves where bauxite was extracted from and used until the year 1939.
You can also see the ruins of the buildings as well as the last remains of bauxite that were never loaded.
Finally, we sail along the northeast side of Amorgos where one can see the steep rocks that stretch down to the sea and the beaches of small and big Vlihada, Egiali, and the islands of Nikouria and Grabonisi.
