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.

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

My favorite beach in the world ..... beautiful scenery, fabulous water, fun little island to swim and dive off of, and a great taverna. The ride can be a little frightening for some but worth the trip.
