Forming one of the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Donoussa is roughly 16 km to the east of the island of Naxos and 25 km to the north of the island of Amorgos. Donoussa is quite a small island measuring around 14 sq. km, with its highest point 385 m above sea level. Due to its small size, the island has remained a virgin place for summer holidays, with few tourist facilities and much privacy. The island's main town is also called Donoussa.
Many visitors to the island while away the hours by swimming in the warm, crystal clear waters off the island's beaches. Most of the beaches are not organised and are mostly accessible on foot. For the more energetic visitor, the island is an ideal destination for trekking.
Donoussa can be reached by ferry from Piraeus or with local boat from Naxos and Amorgos. The small ferryboat Express Skopelitis works the route between Naxos, Iraklia, Schinoussa, Koufonissi, Donoussa and Amorgos three to five days a week during the summer months.
The Greek island of Amorgos is located in the Cyclades group of islands and has many popular visitor attractions which includes the Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa, to the north east of Chora. Located on the edge of a cliff, the monastery was built in the early part of the second millennium in order to protect a religious icon that dates back to 812 from intruders. The icon is on display inside the monastery.
There are many ancient remains dotted around the island and includes ancient towers, ancient tombs, stone tools, vases and by the walls that surround the city of Arkesini.
The island has two ports. One is in the town of Katapola, which is the main port, and the other in the town of Aegiali which is located close to the island's camp site and therefore it is popular with young people. From the ports ferries depart to the port of Piraeus on the Greek mainland, and has a crossing time of around 7 hours and 30 minutes. Amorgos is also connected to the islands of Crete, Naxos, Paros, Koufonissi, Schinoussa, Donoussa and Astypalea.
