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.

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.

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. The stony beach results in a clear water that offers swimming, snorkeling, and diving. And least but very important, the taverna on the beach... More

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
