During our stay we went around the whole island and this was probably the best beach we could find. The location with the cliffs on both sides of the beach keeps the sometimes annoying wind away.

This is definitely one of the most beautiful beaches of Karpathos, close to Pigadia as well (That is why it can be crowded some days). A miniature of Kira Panagia Beach. It is an awesome sea bay with steep slopes at the sides, but the day i visited it, it was very windy. I wish i had one more day... More
