This is one of the beaches to visit in Karpathos. It is about 20 min drive from town on the north road and the small road descending to the beach is well marked. The water is perfect and it is usually calm. There is a nice taverna and rental for chairs and umbrella.

This beach is accessible by car only. It is worth seeing as it is really beautiful and not very crowdy. The day I went there the weather was more windy than usual but it still gave me nice memories of this beach and its wavy sea ;)

This side of Karpathos has many this kind of beautiful beaches. This beach has beautiful scenery, clean and clear waters, lot of fishes to follow while snorkeling, Nice tavern near the beach. Here are showers, which were missing from Apella. Lots of parking space.

Beautiful beach not far from Pigadia. Pebbled beach with crystal clear water and some nice caves to explore. Good for snorkelling. Need a car/quad to access.

This the one! What a beautifull ride to this beach and what a great bay. Surrounded by hillsides you feel cosy and tranquility will get a hold of you. You can rent a sunbed or just lay down your towel on the pebbles and soak in the sun. The water is crystalclear and greenish/blue. Not crowded at all and plenty... More

Like most all Karpathos beaches-gorgeous and clean. We went in mid-September and water is still warm while the summer crowds have dissipated.
