Iraklia Katapola Ferry reviews

  • "Oops! You left us all behind in Paros!!"

    We queued in the correct ‘pens’ in Paros, our ferry arrived….but no-one opened our gates 3&4 where we were waiting, and the ferry left without us. Luckily for us, there was another of your ferries 1/2 hr later, and we all got on that! It was traumatic to see our ferry depart without us.

Katapola Guide

Amorgos is a Greek island that is part of the Cyclades group of islands and is the closest island to the Dodecanese island group. Due to Amorgos' position opposite the ancient beaches of Ionian towns such as Militos, Alikarnassos and Ephesos, it became one of the first places from which the Ionians passed through to the Cyclades Islands and onto the Greek mainland. A popular attraction on the island is the monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa and is located on the cliffs to the north east of Chora. The monastery was constructed in the early part of the second millennium in order to protect a religious icon that dates back to 812, and is on display inside the monastery.
