Aegiali in Amorgos

Aegiali (or Egiali) lies on the north-eastern of Amorgos, about 15 kilometres from Chora and about 20 kilometres from Katapola. Aegiali is the largest of the four villages located on this part of the island, it is also the second port and the largest tourist resort of the island. Aegiali lies in a bay surrounded by high hills, in the hills lies the genuine villages of Langada, Tholaria and Potamos.

The whitewashed houses in Aegiali, many of them pensions, climb up along the hill towards the village of Potamos. New pensions and tavernas have been built along Aegiali's sandy beach in recent years. In the small port are many fishing boats, next to them the fishermen often sits and mend their nets. Several tavernas and cafes are located with the sea as its closest neighbour and it is a pleasure to have lunch or dinner here.

Aegiali's largest attractions are the nearness to the sandy beach and to the picturesque villages in the hills above. The long sandy beach is excellent for families with children, light yellow sand and shallow water. The beach extends along the entire bay and it is no problem to find a place for himself. It is close to tavernas, some are located just behind the beach. Continuing a short distance - by car, scooter or on foot - after Aegiali, one will reach Levrossos beach below Hotel Aegiali. Note that there are no sunbeds for hire. There is only sunbeds at Maltezi beach in Katapola, and at Kalotaritissa beach.

The downside of staying in Aegiali is that it is far to other parts of the island, like to Chora, Katapola, Agia Anna, the monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa and Mouros. But you do not have to move around very much if you stay in Aegiali, here's everything you need.


It is easy to be stuck with a game of backgammon in one of the cafes close to the small windmill, with such a wonderful view it does not matter if you lose. The sunset is fabulous, actually it is even more beautiful than in Katapola.

And if you get tired of beach life, just go by bus, or hike along the old donkey paths up to Tholaria and Langada, eat lunch and watch the donkeys, or drive to Agios Pavlos and go for a swim at a beach similar to the Caribbean.
