The village of Katapola is located on the Greek island of Amorgos, which is one of the Cyclades group of islands. Amorgos is the nearest Cycladic island to the neighbouring Dodecanese group of islands. The long and narrow village of Katapola only has a few streets, where visitors will see that many of the houses are just a stone's throw from the water's edge. Located a short distance from the village you will find a few tavernas, cafes and bars. This is the perfect location for a leisurely lunch and to take in the views on offer. The best beach closest to the village is Maltezi beach which is a fairly short walk from the village.
There are frequent ferry connections from Katapola to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of between 7 - 9 hours on a conventional ferry, depending on itinerary, and 4 - 5 hours if a fast ferry is taken. The island also has ferry services to the rest of the Cyclades, the Dodecanese islands and with the island of Astypalaia.
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.
