Crystal clear waters

One of the best beaches on the island of Karpathos. I always look forward to visiting this beach. Crystal, clear blue sea. A very relaxing experience.

Apella is an excellent beach; very popular amongst turists and therefore sometimes overpopulated at time. A morning visit, though is well worth getting up early for. Unfortunately our experience withe taverna there have not been good- overpriced and bad service in my opinion. Apella is supposedly the top beach on Karpathos, but there are many other charming spots on this... More

The beach is the beautiful beach in this island. Very quiet and shrouded with huge rocks. The water are so clean and blue. Thisis a great place to spend with your lady.

If you like peace and quiet, I recommend that you take the red route as in the picture on the other side of the beach, where you can enjoy naked sun and sea.

The best beach we visited on this island. We visited it in the early morning. You must ride through curvy roads and then to climb a few rocks to come to this beach, but it is all worth it! It has naturale shade and very clean water. We saw only 4-5 people on that beach,there are no caffes or music... More

Really nice beach. It was fun snorkel. but only one very bad and expensive taverna. The beach is not have toilets or changing rooms . I'm feeling like that a few hours was enough at this beach.

If you go late in the morning parking space for the beach can be an issue. Apella beach restaurant is run by a young family. Very friendly, clean, welcoming good service and excellent food. Beautiful scenery from its varenda. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommend for lunch.

Pretty, but also pretty crowded sand/pebble beach. Nice drive from Pigadia. Last couple of meters need to be walked down a stairs though. Not the most accesible beach on the island. 2 sunbeds + umbrella are € 7,00. To reach the tarvena you have to climb back up again + an extra 20 or so extra steps up. Food's ok,... More

This is probably one of the prettiest Greek beaches I have been on There are some stairs and some boulders to negotiate to get on the beach but once there plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas There is a taverna at the top of the road above the beach which we did not try as brought our own water and snacks...
