“The most beautiful beach in Karpathos!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

I've not been to all of the beaches there, but out of about 6-7 beaches we've visited, this one was the most lovely, not to mention the breathtaking view & landscape on the way to it... The water are between light-blue & turquoise and the sandy beach is at the end of a steep canyon. On the slopes & cliffs there are nice houses & small hotels/apartments with an amazing view on the bay. There's also a nice tavern on the beach, for having a drink or even a good lunch with the exquisite view & sea-breeze...

“Awesome, one of my favourites”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were at Kyra Panagia at the beginning of October and it was perfect. Very few people, beautiful sea colour, warm water, you can even get natural shade in the corners (go to the left corner - it's great for some nice photos). Up the hill, by the church, look down the cliff over the fence - you'll see the most gorgeous clear blue sea ever :)
Come early because this beach gets in a shade around 5 pm.

“So hot and crowded”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This beach is famous. Go to any postcard-selling shop on the island and you'll spot it right away: a church with a red dome-shaped roof, a white beach plus clear water. We fell for it, too. Yes, the drive down here is beautiful, the water is clear. But the beach turned out to be extremely crowded and the pebbly beach was hot. So hot that sitting anywhere else than under the provided umbrellas is a big no-go. The kids couldn't play a lot, except in the water and turned to us for entertainment instead. On the plus side you can order drinks and food from one of the tavernas to be served on the beach - a nice touch. We ordered frozen lemon juice and coffee but had brought our own lunches. There are two minimarkets and a taverna nearby; we bought some Greek Yogurt for snacks. Due to its position on the east coast of Karpathos the beach is in the shade after 5pm. This beach was definitely a disappointment to all of us.
