There are a large number of beaches and swimming coves of diverse quality all around Karpathos, everything from solitary coves with white powdery sand to pebbly and gravel beaches with sunbeds. You have to leave the tourist resorts to get to the really nice beaches - by your own vehicle or by beach boat. North of Pigadia are four gems in a row: Achata, Kato Lakos, Kyra Panagia and Apella. Other nice beaches are the double beach of Diakofti near the airport and Agios Nikolaos near the village of Arkasa. Do you like to windsurf, head to Makris Gialos, which attracts novices and experienced windsurfers.

Note that the beaches at Agios Nikolaos, Amopi, Diafani, Finiki, Lefkos and Pigadia are described under the heading of Villages.
