Exceptional beauty of nature, water is cristalline. best time to visit during the week to avoid a crowded beach. There are limited umbrellas.

Long beach, where you can enjoy both paid sunbeds or a spot on the sand or even on the marble white pebbles under a tree. Can get quite crowded, bit never fails to offer a sense of feeling of undisturbed Greek nature at its best.

Very nice pebbles beach, but with lots of negatives: quite crowded, hard to park a car, no good options to get a bite. For me, far from the best beach in Karpathos.

The location is a bit secluded, but well worth the ride. The beach is pebble stones turning to smaller stones and sand as you walk up from water. The water is crystal clear, and since the beach is behind mountains the Meltemi wind doesn't effect...More

We have visited many beaches in Greece but there is nothing like Apella. It is not easily accessible yet the effort is very rewarding at the end. The route from Pigadia is magical through the trees. One can see the beach from the mountain as...More

Was in Karpathos last september. You can reach most of the beaches by car, and Apella is by far the best one (by boat the best is Xas beach - Vasilis paradise. Not to be missed) Here you'll find some row of umbrellas and sunbeds,...More

We stayed just outside Karpatos town. I think it was counted as being in Karpathos town but the hotel wasn't like 5 minutes walk from the center. I would stay close to Karpatos town unless you really like rural settings... More
