“A Unique Experience”
Review of Agia Anna Beach

Ranked #4 of 25 things to do in Amorgos

Reviewed 19 September 2013

This is a big Must-Go! The experience starts with the steep descending road down to the beach (a bit like the road that takes you down to the port in Santorini). The mountains are so high and so imposing that it is overwhelming. The famous local monastery is like a small dot on them, when looked at from the sea. The beach is actually a scattering of many different places: a big rock as you go down with coves left and right, and there is more if you walk further to the right side. An added bonus is that this a clothes-optional place. Two decades ago it was full of nude people. Nowadays, the nudist part has shrank. Still, depending on the day you go naked even at the very front, on the immediate right of the big rock (avoid doing so on the left side, under the small chapel). On the far right beach one can find the nudist core - avoid going there if you do not want to take off some of your swimming attire.

Besson filmed part of The Big Blue there, and it is easy to see why--clear waters, endless horizon, and a great bonus-the hidden view of the monastery once one is in the sea.
Slightly difficult to climb down, but the snack bar at the top of the staircase more than compensates.

It is small place, can get crowded easily(30 - 40 pax) try going early morning, to avoid the crowd.
It is very clean and blue water, its with pebbles, no sand, perfect for snorkeling. It is quite a drive from main ports like Katapola and Aegali, definitely closer from Katapola. If you are staying at Chora, its 10 mins drive max. Make your trip together with the Monastery, as it is on the way. Nothing special, yet clean blue water, which i find almost on every cyclades island now. If you are close by, do visit it, it is worth a swim :)
It is in quite isolated place, no sun beds, or shops, absolutely nothing. So be prepared when yo go there with water, sheets to stay on, almost everything you need. There is a small bar before the stairs, that's all.It is really small place.

Visitors of Hozoviotissa Monastery, have the opportunity to come to this nearby beach and cool themselves after climbing up the monastery.
Unfortunately it's often crowdwed, but worths a short diving here.
