Part of the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Amorgos is the eastern most Cycladic island and has many ancient ruins for visitors to see. The island's ancient walls that surround the city of Arkesini are a popular feature on the island. The island also has a number of ancient towers and other remains located throughout the island.
The Panagia Hozoviotissa, a monastery located on a cliff to the north east of Chora was built in the second millennium to protect a religious icon from intruders. The icon remains on public display.
The island is connected with the port of Piraeus on the mainland and has ferry connections with the islands of Crete, Naxos, Syros, Paros, Koufonissi, Schinoussa, Donoussa and Astypalea. The two ports on Amorgos where the ferries come in are Katapola and Aegiali (changes on even and odd days). The journey from port of Piraeus to one of these ports will last around seven hours and thirty minutes.
The Greek island of Koufonisia is located to the east of the island of Naxos and to the west of the island of Amorgos, and is made up of two islets named Pano Koufonisi and Kato Koufonisi. The two islets are separated by a strait which is around 200 meters wide and the island's name is derived from the Greek for "Hollow Island" which is a reference to the large caves which led pirates to believe that the island was hollow when viewed from the sea. Located close to Koufonisia is the deserted island of Keros which has been declared an archaeological site that is under protection because of the many Cycladic artefacts that have been found on the island.
Pano Koufonisi is the only inhabited of the two islets and is a popular destination for visitors who want to relax on the island's golden sandy beaches or to swim in the island's war, crystal clear waters.
