Beaches of kato meria
Beaches of Kato Meria in Amorgos island combine crystal clear waters They are suitable for families but also attract the diving enthusiasts!
Mouros beach Amorgos
Mouros beach (15 kilometers away from Chora) is located in the south of Amorgos, very close to Vroutsi and Kamari villages. Cars and motorbikes (as well as the local bus) can travel up to a certain point (a paved road with a sign pointing left). Then you will have to take a footpath to reach the beach.
The beach is covered in small and large pebbles; make sure you swim out to explore the underwater caves along the rocks on the right side of the cove.
Take your snorkeling equipment and admire the majestic depths of the Amorgean sea! You will not regret it!
You can also bring your own sunbeds and umbrellas, there is plenty of room if you arrive early enough… Once again, don’t forget your sunscreen.
Local seafood and other dishes are available in the nearby tavernas.
Ammoudi beach, on the south-western coast of the island, is a quiet beach protected from the north wind, with sand, pebbles and clean waters. A footpath starts in Arkesini village square (Loza), and the beach is about half an hour’s walk away.
Kato Kampos beach
A deep and narrow cove with a small pier and sand-and-pebble beach. Take the road to Kolofana village, and then follow the dirt road to the right to reach Kato Kambos. The scenery here, including the tiny chapel built next to sea, is wild and beautiful and seemingly unexplored.
A few meters to the west of Agia Paraskevi church (2.5 kilometers from Kolofana village), you will find the sandy and pebbled beachof Paradisia. Occasionally, and depending on the prevailing winds, swimming is not recommended due to the high swell.
Kalotaritissa bay beach
A beautiful sandy bay at the southern edge of the island. Umbrellas and sunbeds are available for rent, as well as kayaks for the more adventurous!
The bay is very sheltered and wonderful for a swim in the clear waters – but beware of the waves as soon as you swim further out! There is a canteen on the beach, serving cool drinks and snacks throughout the day.
Kalotaritissa is also the starting point for the short boat trip to Gramvousa island when the weather is good.
Gramvousa island Amorgos
A deserted islet located opposite Kalotaritissa bay. It combines diaphanous blue waters with fine golden sand, and can be reached by boat, either from Kalotaritissa on a daily basis, or from Katapola (one of the island’s two ports), when the weather permits!
Look out for the wild hares on Gramvousa! They are a rare sight and will usually hide in their burrows as you approach, but perhaps they will pose for a photo first!
