The beach is not so far from Pigadia and displays crystal clear waters and has small pebbles. If you prefer natural shade, like we do, there is a rock on the right side of the beach which gives good shadow from noon. That was our favorite spot!

Stunning drive from Pigadia. The gorge behind the beach has a hiking trail in a river bed which is dry during summer but with many flowers in bloom. There is one taverna at the beach. Organised with sunbeds and umbrellas. Quiet and lovely place. Go for a hike in the mountains and rest at the beach afterwards.

We visited this beach from sea, during a 3 beach day cruize. It is so peaceful and beautiful. The water is great 22 degrees celsius, at this time (second week of June) a bit cold for a couple of minutes, but once you get in you're fine. It is a very picturesque beach, reminds me of caribbean beaches. I know... More

A small road leads till this amazing beach. Between the cliffs is the blue sea, it is a pebble beach. You will find beach umbrella to rent and a small restaurant where you can eat some good Greek food and drink a glass of retsina or a cold bear.

One of the best beaches on the island of Karpathos. Try to start your day early and catch one of the available sun umbrellas because it becomes really hot during the day! It is popular but not crowded.

Like other similar beaches on Karpathos, Achata is just as stunning. It has everything you need: awesome sea, natural shade by the rocks, enough parking space... In late September it's great because you're almost alone at this beach.

Definitely one of the beautiful and interesting beaches in Karpathos. Only 20 minutes from the Pigadia city center, With lawn-chairs (extra charge) and shaded areas. The crystal clear water, very deep and clean and quiet and relaxing atmosphere. On both sides of the beach, on the mountain slopes, there are caves and tunnels, where you can dive. There is also...

This was one of our favourite beaches in Karpathos, the scenery on the decent to this beautiful bay is just breath taking. Crystal clear water greets the visitor and shelters you from the wind I would definitely recommend it.
