Karpathos is the second largest island in the Dodecanese, behind the island of Rhodes. It is situated in the South Eastern Aegean Sea, and due to its remote location the tradition and culture is unique and well preserved. Karpathos is mostly famous for fine white sandy beaches, which can be found on the South of the island, not far from the ferry port. The crystal clear waters provide the perfect setting for swimming and watersports.
Karpathos is an island of natural beauty and offers many hiking trails as the settlements are surrounded by mountaineous terrain. Karpathos has a variety of family taverns, each with unique and delicious cuisine. All dishes are made with fresh, local produce and seafood plays a large part on the menu. Traditional specialities on Karpathos include handmade pasta, onion bread and cheese pies.
