NYPost Amorgos in secret islands of Greece

There are plenty of Greeks who aren’t clued in to what makes Amorgos so great. Their loss — the easternmost island of the Greek Cyclades is a stunner, with whitewashed houses, trestled alleyways and fiery rust sunsets. Couple that with the fact that it’s criminally under-visited and you’ve got Greek Eden. There’s shock and awe, like the iconic white Moni Hozoviotissis monastery, embedded precariously within an awesome cliff face high above the sea, which steals your breath away like a UFC kick to the diaphragm the first time you view it. There’s also food for thought: Amorgos’ thin passageways, draped in bougainvillea, are peppered with authentic tavernas serving simple Greek cuisine, usually owned and operated by a one-man host/server/chef band. Then there’s the local firewater: Psimeni Raki — distilled from grapes, honey and cinnamon — would serve to take the edge off around here were there any edge to squash. What more do you want?
