Amoudi beach on Amorgos
Amoudi (or Ammoudi) beach is one of Amorgos' least known beaches that is possible to reach without a boat. There is no taverna so if you are going to stay for a long time you have to bring your own food and drinks. The nearest taverna is in Arkesini. The beach is just a stone's throw from its more famous cousin Mouros beach.

It took me many years before I gave Amoudi a chance, even though I had driven past the signpost pointing to the beach many times. I had believed (incorrectly as it turned out) that the hike down to the beach would take a long time. But when I was on Amorgos one year was told that it only took 30 minutes to walk down. So me and Camilla drove there and, sure enough, it only took 30 minutes to walk down.
The "path" that goes to Amoudi beach.
Once down on the beach, it looks like this.
It felt like a piece of cake to walk, not at least for the amazing view over the big blue that was in front of us the whole hike. Going up is not a piece of cake, the hike is quite strenuous, but do not take much longer than 30 minutes. The path to Amoudi starts along the road that leads to Arkesini.
Amoudi beach is surrounded by stunning water.
The beach is tiny and the sea is huge. In that way one can describe Amoudi. There are also some stones and rocks to dive from, and to sunbathe on. It is an ideal place for those who like to snorkel, and for those who like to skinny-dip.
If you like snorkeling, you will love Amoudi beach.
