Accommodation and places to stay

We could say that Karpathos is an island characterized by the touristic and more accessible southern part and the mountainous -relatively unexplored- north. Pigadia is a good choice of accommodation in Karpathos as it is and ideal base to discover the southern part of the island.

Pigadia may not impress with its picturesqueness and island architecture, but it has enough shops for food and drinks in the evening.

If you diside to find accommodation in the hotels and rooms of the southern part of Karpathos, with its fragrant pine trees, you will have access to the most famous beaches of the island.

You will visit picturesque villages like Menetes, Arkasa, Aperi, you will take an evening stroll and shop souvenirs in the capital and the main port of the island, in Pigadia.

But the north has its own grace. The northern part of Karpathos is characterized by its wild beauty and sharp ridges. Driving through the twisty turns there were times when we passed through the clouds. Really impressive feeling.

Apart from the emblematic Olympus, the northern part of the island will offer you more tranquility, amazing wild landscapes of untouched beauty and pristine beaches.

If you like to be close to a beach without a lot of traffic, you can also stay at Kyra Panagia, one of the famous beaches of the island. With a search you will find several accommodations.

we would suggest you, depending on the days you have on the island, to choose to stay some days in Pigadia and some in the amazing Olympus.
