Description

Discover the secret beauties of Amorgos and enjoy the best beaches which are accessible only by boat. Take pictures of the ornament of the island, the monastery of Holy Mary Hozoviotissa.

The grandeur of its view can be seen while aboard standing like a white dove on the steep rocks that stretch down to the sea. Take pictures next to the petrified pirate and swim at the most beautiful beach on the island Chalara where one can get only by boat. All the wildlife of Amorgos (steep rocks, beaches, and unique caves) can be captured there.
