The Big Blue (French: Le Grand Bleu) is a 1988 English-language film. You should watch this movie before you go to Amorgos. Amorgos you will get a taste of the Greek hospitality. Its inhabitants have been tested for many years, as it has deliberately been declared as “the island of the infrequent line”. They have been deprived of communication and now (that the island is growing rapidly) the Amorgians generously give out unforgettable moments to whoever chooses to visit their island. The Amorgians are good people, proud and, despite the increase in tourism over the last few years, they have remained pure and true to the manners and customs of their land. Psimeni raki is a local homemade liquor with flavour of honey, cinnemon and clove, made since ancient times on Amorgos.
