The location is a bit secluded, but well worth the ride. The beach is pebble stones turning to smaller stones and sand as you walk up from water. The water is crystal clear, and since the beach is behind mountains the Meltemi wind doesn't effect...More

We have visited many beaches in Greece but there is nothing like Apella. It is not easily accessible yet the effort is very rewarding at the end. The route from Pigadia is magical through the trees. One can see the beach from the mountain as...More

Was in Karpathos last september. You can reach most of the beaches by car, and Apella is by far the best one (by boat the best is Xas beach - Vasilis paradise. Not to be missed) Here you'll find some row of umbrellas and sunbeds,...More

The driving to the beach is a little bit tricky on the way down, but as such there is a beautiful view from the top of the mountain, beach itselve is nice with pebbles and clear waters but Karpathos has certainly better beaches than Apella.

We stayed just outside Karpatos town. I think it was counted as being in Karpathos town but the hotel wasn't like 5 minutes walk from the center. I would stay close to Karpatos town unless you really like rural settings... More
