Katapola Guide

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.


Iraklia Guide

The small Greek island of Iraklia is located at the western edge of the Small Eastern Cyclades group of islands and only has around 100 inhabitants. The island is characterised by hills, thick vegetation, clear waters with the od shipwreck on the sea floor, and scenic bays which all combine to make it one of the most unspoilt islands of the Cyclades. For nature lovers the island is home to the Mediterranean seal and the marine turtle, Caretta Caretta. The island only has two villages. Ayios Georgios, which is home to the island's harbour, and Panayia.

Perhaps because the island is so small its history remains largely unknown with speculation that is may have been a Minoan settlement in the 2nd century BC, as there is an similar city in Crete. Under Venetian and Ottoman rule, the island paid taxes but it seems that it was the only obligation the Iraklians had.

From the island's port there are ferries available that depart to the Port of Piraeus with a crossing time of between 8 and 10 hours, depending on itinerary. There are also ferry services to the other islands of the Small Cyclades and to Naxos and Amorgos.
