Retreat location

Amorgos is situated in the Aegean sea, in the easter part of the Cyclades island group. It’s one of the most beautiful Greek islands! You may have already seen the island in Luc Besson’s cult movie ‘The big blue”(1988).

The island is very well preserved, protected from mass tourism and its traditions are still alive.

Yogoa is so looking forward to making you discover this amazing, peaceful island with its traditional white villages, beautiful landscape, and the hospitality of the locals.

Amorgos is particularly renowned for scuba diving and hiking. With Yogoa you will have a long walk together, so don’t forget to bring good walking shoes with you!

Two beaches are five minutes walk from the hotel and after a 10 - 15 minutes walk, you will be in the port of Aegiali.

The island is famous for its beautiful walking paths. The water around the island has an average visibility of 50 meters which makes it an amazing place for diving!

Food

Daily Breakfast and dinner are included. There will be options for vegan, gluten-free, and no onions/no garlic diets. Let Yogoa know in advance if you have any food allergies/intolerances. The lunches are not included.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by boat

Amorgos has two ports, Aegiali port in the northern part of the island (closer to the hotel) and Katapola port situated in the middle of the island (20 kilometers from the hotel). The hotel can drop you and pick you up from both ports.

From Athens: The Seajets ferries are running daily in May. They leave at 7 am in the morning and arrive at the port of Katapola at 1:30 pm.

The Blue Star Ferries have a connection to Amorgos 6 times per week (no boat on Saturday). The boat leaves the port of Piraeus at 5:30 pm and arrives in the middle of the night in one of the 2 ports of Amorgos, Katapola or Aegiali, depending on the days. The ferry journey takes 8-9 hours.

From Athens Airport to the Piraeus Port you can go by train (1 hour for 10 EUR), by metro (around 1 hour for 10 EUR), by bus (1,5 hours for 6 EUR - Bus X96), or by taxi (40 minutes for 55 - 70 EUR).

  • Athens Airport – Monastiraki Line 3 ”Blue Line” (train every 30 min)
  • Monastiraki – Piraeus Port Line 1 ”Green Line” (the port of Piraeus is the last station)

If flying to Mykonos, Santorini or Naxos is more convenient for you or you want to visit other islands before the retreat starts, you have to know that there are fewer island connections in May than in the summer months and you will have to go via Naxos.

Contact Yogoa if you want more information on the ferry options from the Cycladic Islands.
