Amorgos island in Greece

I'm constantly surprised with how few people have heard of Amorgos in the Cyclades islands of Greece. Anywhere else in the world, an island with perfect beaches, aqua blue waters, iconic monasteries, and miles of hiking paths would be a premier destination!

On top of that, Amorgos municipality have an incredible website, providing visitors with all the information they need. And yet, it's still in a way waiting to be discovered.

It's probably a good thing. It means you'll be able to enjoy Amorgos without the crowds you'll have just experienced in Mykonos!

How to get from Mykonos to Amorgos

There is no airport in the Greek island of Amorgos, so the only way to make the trip from Mykonos to Amorgos is to take a ferry.

During the busiest months for travel, you can expect 1 ferry per day sailing directly from Mykonos to Amorgos. These ferries to Amorgos from Mykonos are operated by SeaJets.

There are also several indirect routes available should a direct ferry crossing not be operating, and these might work out to be fractionally cheaper. They would involved going via Naxos or Paros first.

Ferries to Amorgos from Mykonos

There is just the one daily direct ferry leaving from Mykonos and sailing to Amorgos during the tourist season. It's a Seajets high speed ferry, which means it is quite small, but fast. The journey time takes around 2 hours and 10 minutes.

The Seajets ferry company offers what you might call a touristic service between the two Cyclades islands. As a result, ticket prices can be quite expensive, around the 89.70 Euro mark.

Amorgos has two ports, but the Mykonos Amorgos crossing heads to just the one – Katapola. It does, however, make sense to double check where your Amorgos ferry arrives, as if your hotel owner is picking you up from the port, you don't want to send them to the wrong one!

Note: If you want to travel during the off-season, or if no direct ferries are available for some reason, you could consider taking a ferry from Mykonos to Naxos first. You would then get a separate Naxos to Amorgos ferry.

I find that Ferryscanner is a good website to use to book ferry tickets online.
