Best Beaches in Amorgos

Updated On:

Written By: Pavlos Inglesis

Amorgos is one of the most underrated greek islands and I really believe it’s in its own league. The best beaches in Amorgos are mostly located on the north side of the island but the famous “Big Blue” beach (aka Agia Anna is on the southern and most rough and rocky side of the island.

Amorgos has a very rough terrain with massive rocky cliffs and mountains but with possibly some of the clearest sea waters on earth

Aegiali beach with its golden sand and turquoise waters is the best beach in Amorgos but the island has many more nice beaches

Most of the main beaches on the island are reachable by the Amogos local buses but I highly recommend renting a car as the island has a very rough terrain and you’ll definitely be more flexible on exploring it.

I have to warn you though that for some of the most remote beaches of Amorgos you are going to have to him a bit. If this is not your thing but you still want to enjoy a nice beach then Aegiali is the best option for you. Bear also in mind that most of the beaches in Amorgos are covered with pebbles and can be quite rocky. The famous Agia Anna (where the Big Blue movie was shot) it is not even considered a beach in my opinion, but it’s rather a rocky complex from where you can basically dive in the totally blue waters.

So, the best beaches in Amorgos are (in no particular order):

VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW

  • Does Amorgos have nice beaches: Amorgos has extremely beautiful and unique beaches from the long and wide sandy Aegiali to the rocky Agia Anna and Levrossos with its turquoise waters.

  • Best Beach in Amorgos: many people consider Aegiali to be the best beach in Amorgos because it has the best vibes overall and it is the most family-friendly but some of the most quiet beaches of the island are also amazing such as Levrossos, Mouros or the remote Kalotaritissa at the very southern tip of the island.

  • Best Beach for Families with kids in Amorgos: I believe that the best beach for families and kids in Amorgos is Aegiali; Aegiali is a golden sand beach with lots of restaurants and cafes behind it which can be ideal for a meal on the beach. In Aegiali you will also find the best diving centre of the island from where you can rent equipment or just book a diving experience and tour. The only thing you should be aware of is that none of the Amorgos beaches is actually organized with sunbeds like you would find on other greek islands, so you will need to bring your own umbrellas and towels to lay down . You can still sit on a sunbed which is usually behind the beach on any of the beach bars.

  • When can you actually swim at the beaches of Amorgos: you can swim whenever you feel comfortable, to be honest, but all beaches are at their best in June, July, August and September when the waters are very warm and the ambient temperatures are more than 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit). Amorgos is an island that it never gets too busy and you will always find a spot to sit on any beach even in August.
  • Tickets: there are no tickets on any of the beaches in Amorgos and there are no sunbeds on the beaches themselves. This is actually a very unique thing these days as most of the beaches on the most touristic islands in Greece have been ruined by the hundreds of sunbeds that lay around. Amorgos has still kept its wilderness, on that.

CONCLUSION

So, these are the Best Beaches in Amorgos. I keep on saying that Amorgos is an extremely underrated greek island with an incredible capital town (that is Chora). When it comes to its beaches, it is certainly not the most gifted Cyclades island compared to Ios, Mykonos or Milos, but Amorgos beaches in my opinion are much better than Santorini beaches for example with some of the most fantastic crystal clear waters in the Mediterranean.
