Apella Beach, Karpathos

4.6
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.

  • Some guides the present themselves as the most beautiful beach of the island, perhaps for this reason is the only beach where I couldn't find parking for the car and I had to go back before the morning of July (!) I can't imagine what's in August and keep in mind that unlike other here the boats that depart from the capital they go ashore guests doing quarters manoeuvres in the Bay ..... too bad because it would not be absolutely bad in fact, probably suitable for June and September

  • wide beach with umbrellas and not. Limited parking x cars! Every now and then dock the boats some trips unfortunately, but there is enough room for everyone

  • Crowed but worth it! The water is crystal clean! There are a few trees on the beach so you can easily find a place to relax under the shade and to enjoy the fresh air from pine trees.  more »

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.
