Apella Beach, Karpathos
(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Great beach, like many others. Take the boat to the port, Pigadia, to several beaches.

  • Certainly one of the most beautiful beaches of the island on the East Coast more sheltered from the wind. At 18 km from Pigadia did you come up with a final descent with many hairpin bends but paved. Possibility for the lazy to get there by boat from Pigadia. Careful to Park well into the end zone because the road is narrow. Take a small downhill and you are at the beach that is mixed sand and gravel. Before you the turquoise blue sea and around the rugged mountain green full of pines that almost give the idea of being in the Alps. Remember a little Ogliastra Sardinia to Cala Luna. However, the entry into the water is not quite easy and quickly becomes high. Snorkelling uninteresting. Beach equipped with 30 beds at about 8 euros. Bring food and water. There is only one taverna at 200 meters and the reviews are not good.

  • The trip here was cool on narrow winding roads. Very few parking facilities. Get there early! Only one taverna with quite ok food but with a great view!
