The island of Amorgos is the most easterly of the Cyclades and the nearest to the Dodecanese. With an approximate population of 1800, the coastline stretches for 121 kilometres while the total land mass is 121 square kilometres. Amorgos is the seventh largest island in the Cyclades and has 2 ports, Katapola at its centre and Aigiali in the north. The 136 mile journey from Piraeus to Amorgos takes between 7 – 9 hours by regular ferry or 4 – 5 hours by highspeed ferry. There are regular ferry connections with the islands of Paros, Naxos and Mykonos and less frequent connections with most of the other Cycladic islands.
Amorgos has been inhabited since prehistoric times, with finds discovered from the early Cycladic period.
The presence of Cretans from the Minoan period has also been established and thoughts are that Amorgos formed one of the residences of King Minos himself. In later years, having fallen under the occupancy of the Romans, Venetians and Turks, the subsequent architecture of Amorgos is rich and diverse and when combined with fine beaches, wild landscapes, beautiful churches and ancient sites, visitors to Amorgos can enjoy the relaxing way of life in very traditional and picturesque environments displaying an original character and amazing beauty.
