Maltezi and Plakes beaches in Amorgos

There are two beaches in Katapola, the one that lies below Eleni Rooms, and the one that lies between Katapola and Xilokeratidi. A much better option is Maltezi beach located in a bay after Xilokeratidi.

You get here by beach boat from Katapola, or on foot. It takes between 30-40 minutes to walk to Maltezi, depending on how often you stop, it's a very beautiful walk.

If you walk to Maltezi you start in Xilokeratidi (which is a part of Katapola), round the point of land after the cemetery and continue along the water until you come to a rock, walk up the rock and soon you see the beach below you.

After Maltezi beach, behind the hill, lies Plakes which is a very nice bathing-place with rocks. You can only go by beach boat to Plakes, well, you can walk over the hill, but it takes both time and effort.
