A speck of white in the blue waters of the Aegean, Amorgos is a stunning island with high peaks and vivid landscapes that mesmerizes visitors at first sight. Its timeless beauty, rugged nature and love for tradition make it one of the most mysterious islands of the Cyclades. Amorgos is an island worth discovering, although this discovery might not always come easy. Small and quiet, Amorgos is the ideal island to indulge in some rest and relaxation away from the crowds and happening nightlife that characterize some other Greek islands. The stunning monastery of Hozoviotissa, the island’s top attraction, is an iconic construction that leaves visitors breathless, not only because of the steep steps that lead to the entrance; other trekking paths make Amorgos popular with those who enjoy wearing their hiking boots instead of their bathing suits.
