12 Under-the-Radar Greek Islands for a Secluded Summer Escape

Amorgos : Best for getting away from it all

Six hours from Athens, this rocky island is where to head for some detoxing. Amorgos is known for its cliffside monastery, Panagia Hozoviotissa, an ecclesiastical eyrie set some 300m above the Aegean that's visible only from the sea. If a monastic escape seems too drastic, we'd take to the trails: the challenging 11.5km Palia Strata route starts from the main island town and ends at the blue waters of Aegiali Bay, an area that's graced the silver screen in Jean Reno's Le Grand Bleu. Stop by a taverna for some typical Amorgos seafood: grilled red mullet and a skorpina (scorpion fish) soup.
