Aegiali or Ayias Annas is the second harbor in Amorgos. It is located near the North end of the island. The harbor provides good shelter from the meltemi (the Etesians) (the Etesians) although when it is strong there can be some swell. You can either dock side-to to the quay or anchor off-shore but within the harbor. This is preferable because you will be away from the strong lights and the maneuvering ferry. If you do so anchor at about 6 m away from the area where the ferry maneuvers. The bottom has mud and weed and provides good holding.
Aegiali is one of the most picturesque beaches on Amorgos and the road that leads to it offers breathtaking views tinted with intense color contrasts. The coast is covered by thin, almost white, sand that blends magically with the deep blue waters and the green color of the surrounding vegetation.
Mikri Vlychada beach is found northwest from Tholaria village, on the northern part of Amorgos, and can be accessed in about 30’ walking by the rocky path mostly used by local fishermen. The beach is in fact a small bay with sand and pebbles, totally unorganized, at the mouth of a gorge.
Just like with Mikri Vlychada beach, Megali Vlychada can be accessed through a path from Tholaria village at about 1 hour walk. The beach is very big, covered with fine golden sand and boasts clean waters, offering one of the best swimming options on the island, away from busy and crowded spots.
