Amorgos is the easternmost island of the Cyclades and with its oblong shape it seems to protect the eastern Lesser Cyclades. It is an island rich in cultural heritage and particularly wild beauty that impress visitors from the very first moment of their arrival.
Undoubtedly this is the island of contrasts. On one side, mountains and on the other, steep slopes ending up on fairytale beaches with crystal clear waters. The sudden changes in the landscape enchant visitors, causing them an explosion of pleasant and intense emotions.
In Amorgos you will get familiar to the hospitality of the Greek people. Its inhabitants have been struggling for many years as it has been classified an island on the marginal route. They were deprived of communication and now that the island is growing fast, the Amorgians generously offer unforgettable moments to visitors. They are good and honest people and despite tourist growth in recent years, they remain pure and loyal to their local tradition and culture. Throughout the summer and the rest of the year, feasts are held and customs revive, being maintained since the old days, in order for the elders to remember the old and the younger to learn…
The Amorgians are not complacent about all that the place has gifted them, but they are constantly looking for new activities through which they will promote all the beauties of the island. Feasts of “psimeniraki” (the local spirit drink), “pasteli” (sesame seeds and honey candy), music, running races, Amorgos gastronomy days, diving competitions are just some of the new activities that locals and tourists have embraced.
The island with its Cycladic-style color and its unspoilt overtime traditional character will impress you mainly because here old meets new in perfect harmony without one to alter the other.
