Camping in Amorgos

Amorgos is famous for its endless blue sea and wild beauty. It’s a great destination for camping holidays and it has many options to choose from. There are 3 camping sites in Amorgos

If you want to meet new people, make friends and dance until the early morning hours, then the Camping of Aegiali is the best choice for you. If you prefer to be closer to the picturesque capital of Amorgos with its bars and shops, then we recommend staying at Camping Kastanis. The Municipal Camping of Amorgos is the most easily accessible as it’s within walking distance from the port of Katapola, as well as close to bus stops and shops. 

Tip: See what to bring on your camping trip this summer!

Right in front of the camping, there is a parking lot, as well as a sandy beach, perfect for a morning swim. The camping of Astypalea has modern facilities and many amenities for a comfortable stay.
