Apella Beach, Karpathos

#1 of 25 in Things to do in Karpathos
Beach Nature / Park
Perfectly unexpected, Apella Beach serves as a picturesque beach with turquoise-emerald water and white pebbled shores on the edge of the neighboring mountainous region. The sparkling clear water is refreshingly cool and offers great snorkeling, particularly around the rocky areas. On the beach, you can rent sun umbrellas and lounge chairs, or pick up a snack from small food vendors. The road to reach the beach is narrow and steep, with limited parking. Plan your visit to Apella Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Karpathos holiday planner.

  • The best beach on the island, small white pebbles and a spectacular sea, the afternoon then you create a natural shade because the beach is surrounded by mountains that shelter from the wind. Recommended going in the afternoon after 17, since the beach is empty and you can better appreciate the place. Is the only one in which we went back twice for its particular beauty. Easily accessible from pigadia with a means of transport.

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.
