On the way from Pigadia to Olympos

  

  • Rent a jeep and go around the island, without a car you can see little in a few days. There is not adequate public transport to help you explore the best places.
  • Surf at the southern coast. It is an ideal place for surfers. Last year the world windsurfing championship was held in Karpathos.
  • Explore mountain trails and quiet beaches at the northern part of the island.
  • Visit island Saria with the local boats and walk up to the monastery
  • Visit Apella beach, Kyra Panagia beach (closer to the capital of the island)
  • Visit Agios Minas beach (with a car better starting from Olympos village or Leukos)
  • Spend a few days in Olympos, the most traditional place of the island. You can either book a room there or in Diafani, which is 10 minutes drive from Olympos.
  • Explore beaches close to Olympos (Forokli, Nati, Vananda, Kapi).
  • Listen to local traditional music played by local musicians in cafes and tavernas in Olympos village
  • Visit Olympos during  August if you want to see traditional festivals (15th of August , 29th August) or during September for great time on the beach or for fishing.
  • Walk  from Diafani to Vananda (close to Diafani harbour), visit Kyra Panagia beach.
  • Walk from Olympos to Avlona, from Avlona to Tristomo. From Avlona to Vroukounta.
  • Just relax. Karpathos is the ideal place ..
