Plakes nudist beach Katapola Amorgos
Plakes beach is recommended for nudists, swimmers dive off the stone slabs and rocks, directly into the crystal-clear blue waters! The area is quite isolated and the beach is popular with nudists, who can enjoy a swim in privacy. Plakes beach is very close to Maltezi and can be reached by boat, running every half hour from the port of Katapola.
The boat trip to and from the aforementioned beaches costs 4 (from and to Maltezi beach) and 4,5€ (from and to Plakes).
An alternative nudist beach in Amorgos island is Kambi, next to Agia Anna.
Agios Panteleimonas beach
A very rocky beach marked by the eponymous chapel. The area has a wonderful view of the port across the bay. Agios Panteleimonas is located just before Maltezi beach and is served by the same footpath.
Kato Akrotiri beach
To the left after the port of Katapola, you will come across the sandy beach of “Kato Akrotiri”. It is a short walk from the last houses of the port settlement. The sea here becomes quite rough on windy days.
This beach is located outside Katapola port; it is not very well-known to visitors and is accessed on foot. To swim there, you will have to walk through Xylokeratidi, then Nera and Peristeria.
Tris Ierarches beach
Another small, pebbled beach with crystal-clear waters in the Katapola area, just below the eponymous Tris Ierarches church in Xylokeratidi neighborhood. Walk through the village to get there.
The first beach you come to on the way to Lefkes and after Minoa, is Finikies. The landscape here is marked by dense vegetation and water springs. Access to this deserted beach is by a small track starting from the main dirt road leading to Lefkes. A swim in its inviting crystalline waters is a must.
The road turns into a footpath when you arrive in Lefkes. About 50 meters after the small bridge, a short detour will lead you to the springs and then on to Tyrokomos cove.
Agioi Saranta beach
On the way to this beach, do make a point of turning around to admire the verdant hillside, one of the few fertile parts of the island. Park your car or motorcycle and a fifteen-minute walk will bring you to the deserted, pebbled beach; take particular care when swimming on windy days, due to the strong swell. Varmas’ torrent crosses the small valley, and the lonely chapel of Agioi Saranta is visible further down.
