One of the most impressive beaches in Karpathos is Apella, located on the eastern side of the island. This beach can be reached by excursion boat from Pigadia or by car. Due to the exotic water with the deep blue colour and the white pebbles, this beach is a great place to swim and gets very popular in high season (August).
Part of Apella beach in Karpathos is organized with umbrellas and lounge chairs, while around the bay are nice studios and restaurants. Some trees on the coast offer natural shade, especially valuable for the hot summer days in Greece.
