Karpathos

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  South Aegean  /  Dodecanese  /  Karpathos
Known largely for its secluded coves and untamed mountains, rugged Karpathos reputedly remains one of the last truly authentic Greek islands. Although its beaches increasingly cater to foreign travelers, the island as a whole remains virtually untouched by mass tourism, its small villages preserving age-old customs, dialect, and traditional clothing. The southern and western sections of the island, exposed to the strong Aegean winds, draw kite surfers looking for a big dose of adrenaline. If you prefer calmer activities, explore the aerie village of Olympos, perched on a rocky outcrop on the island's northern coastline.

Where to stay in Karpathos

As the second-largest of the Dodecanese islands, Karpathos offers not only impeccable beaches, but also lodging options for every taste and budget. The island's small towns boast plenty of well-appointed rooms even at the height of the season, so you can choose to stay at a modern hotel, private villa, or self-catering apartment. Many visitors use the island's biggest town of Pigadia as a base, but you can easily find equally comfortable rooms in village inns spread along the island's eastern coastline.
