This beach is beautiful with very clear water, black sand and pebbles and more or less empty! The roads to get down and back up (we took 2 different ways) are very tough and only experienced drivers should go down, preferably with 4x4. But all...More

The beach was wonderful. Peaceful and quiet but the access was very difficult with a common car and noone told us. We managed to get down, although it was full of curves,narrow and very steep, going back up was actually challenging... We were lucky we...More

We love this beach, even it used to be totally empty in the past and now you can already find a few tourists. But the atmosphere is perfect.

Wonderful beach, accessible via gravel path with very narrow turns. If you ever wondered why the Suzuki Jimny was built, here you find the reason... The beach is very scenic, crystal clear water, and not crowded, even if groups come by boat.

Karpathos is an amazing island. If you enjoy relaxing on the beach you can't miss this place. Well protected from the strong winds and away of civilisation.. If you like remote places this is the place to be!

Wide pebble beach at the end of a valley. The fine pebbles are very unusual in being a mix of black and white. Worth the trip for the seclusion.

Agios Minas beach is a lovely place, and you're quite likely to find fewer people on this beach than in other spots of Karpathos. This said, the Meltemi wind blows very fast (20/25 knots with sudden gales) and the road is a narrow, dirt road...More
