Beautiful beach not far from main town

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. You can rent a sunbed or just lay down your towel on the pebbles and soak in the sun. The water is crystalclear and greenish/blue. Not crowded at all and plenty... More

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.

A marvelous beach with clear water, refreshing but not too cold. Very close to Pigadia. Beach has fresh running water and a small taverna. Cars reach a parking lot very close to the waterfront.

But dont miss it..there are daily cruises from Pigadia if... More

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!
