Amorgos is an island located in the south of the group of islands known as the Cyclades and is surrounded by the crystalline, deep blue sea of the Aegean. The island has a unique energy which immediately fills visitors with a sense of peace and well-being. More than this, Amorgos has astounding nature which varies around every corner, fabulous fresh food, and picturesque villages and beaches which will take your breath away. If you like trekking you are also in luck, as Amorgos is very mountainous: it has organized trails that pass by ancient sites, secluded beaches, tiny chapels and spectacular sea views.
Getting to Amorgos
There is no airport on the island, so you will have board a ferry from Piraeus port, Athens.
From Athens Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” to Piraeus Port:
Bus – Just outside arrivals at the airport, take X96 straight from Athens Airport to Piraeus port.
Metro – Athens Airport – Monastiraki, line 3 (blue line).
Monastiraki – Piraeus port, line 1 (green line).
Taxi – Just outside arrivals at the airport.
From Piraeus to Amorgos (Aegiali or Katapola port):
At Piraeus port you will have the chance to buy tickets for the ferry, but it’s recommended to buy your ticket in advance via the internet (for example here). If you’re traveling between the Cycladic islands it’s easier to find tickets but if you travel during the high season we recommend you to book your ticket in advance.
Amorgos has 2 ports. Aegiali is closest to the Askas hotel where we will be staying.
