"I am talking about Karpathos..." Greece Favorite Tip by daBertl

Greece General: 655 reviews and 611 photos


Favorite thing: I am talking about Karpathos here that's what all my tips are on. If you go to Karpathos there is no way to not renting a car. You need a car to reach the beautiful beaches and bays, which are spread all over the coast. Roads really suck there so better get a good car. Its way cheaper if you make reservations for the vehicle before you get there with a travel agent. You will save like half of the price. You'll also need the car if you wanna go out in the evening since the only two clubs in Karpathos are both in the outskirts of the capital town of Pegadia. Also most of the beach activities like surfing are far away or at least way to far to walk there.

Fondest memory: Definitely the old taverns up in the mountains of Karpathos. If you are lucky you will not encounter any other tourist up there and will get the best food you can imagine to a price, which you would, simply call ridiculous.
