There are many great choices when it comes to taking a vacation in Greece. If you want stunning secluded beaches to explore, the island of Karpathos will fit the bill perfectly. First, fly to Karpathos Island National Airport (AOK), then prepare to relax and indulge yourself in this singular place.
Karpathos is located in the southeastern Aegean Sea and is the second largest of the Greek Dodecanese islands. The island is famous for its many beaches, including Amoopi, Kato Latos and the stunningApella Beach. Boating and diving are very popular in this part of the world, and if you love archaeology, you have to see Agia Sofia Paleokastro, an ancient church that still has some of its original mosaics and columns.
For a fun day trip, head for the hilltop village of Menetes, which is famous for its local musicians and craftsmen of the Karpathos lyre. For a fascinating glimpse into history, visit the ancient town of Vrykounta. The town flourished as early as the 5th century B.C. At night, there are several live music and cocktail bars to choose from.
Visit Karpathos any time of year since the temperatures usually range between the high 50s and the mid-80s. Once you fly into AOK, you can catch a taxi or take the bus around.
