Karpathos Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi, everyone! My trip to Karpathos is only a couple months away now and I cannot wait! For those of you who have been to Karpathos, or are familiar with the island, I am wondering if you'd like to comment on my loosely planned itinerary below. I am a beach bum, so half or more of the days are dedicated to the beach, so bearing this in mind, what do you think? Is there anything major I am missing out on? Any suggestions for my "free day" on the final day of the trip? I will have a car for all the days except the day to Olympos, the first full day in Amoopi (I checked the bus schedule and there seems to be one bus that day between Amoopi and Pigadia, where I'll be staying), and the Menetes village/Kato Lako/Appela day (I figured we can hike to Menetes and back, because it's not too far, then take the ferry in the afternoon to Kato Lako and Apella).

Tentative Daily Schedule

1. Saturday: Arrive early afternoon; check into Pigadia hotel; remainder TBD
2. Sunday: Amoopi beach
3. Monday: Menetes village; Kato Lakos and Apella beaches
4. Tuesday: Olympos village via ferry from Pigadia to Diafani
5. Wednesday: Diakoftis, Michalio Kipos, Agios Theodoros and Lefkos beaches
6. Thursday: Hiking between Aperi, Volada, Othos and Piles villages
7: Friday: Kyra Panagia, Achata, (and Apella?) beaches
8: Saturday: Free day TBD
9; Sunday: Early morning departure

Thank you for any and all advice! I am so excited!
