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.
