Karpathos Guide

Located in the Dodecanese group of the islands, the Greek island of Karpathos lies in the eastern Aegean Sea and is the second largest of the Dodecanese islands. Its relatively remote location has meant that the island has managed to retain many of its traditions and customs, traditional dress and dialect which resembles the dialect of the Greek island of Crete and of Cyprus.

The island's north has many rugged mountains but in contrast the south of the island is quite fertile, and visitors can see many wildflowers during the winter and spring. The island's coastal areas are characterised by beautiful beaches which tend to be quiet and are often nestled between the island's cliffs. The island's beaches differ quite markedly from each other which is dependent on the beach's location. The east coast beaches tend to be smaller and gravelly, but tend not to be too windy. The beaches on the south coast tend to have fine white sand as do the beaches on the island's west coast, although these are the most exposed to the Meltemi and are only really available when the wind isn't too strong. Finally, the beaches in the north are difficult to get to and are really only accessible by sea or by jeep.

Ferries from Karpathos depart to the ports of Piraeus, Rhodes, Heraklion, Milos, Anafi, Sitia, Santorini, Chalki and Kasos.

Diafani Guide

The Greek town and port of Diafani is located on the island of Karpathos which is located in the southern part of the Dodecanese group of islands, between the islands of Crete and Rhodes. As the second largest of the Dodecanese islands, Karpathos extends to a surface area of around 300 sq. km and its terrain is characterised by mountains, the highest peak being Kali Limni and 1,214 meters above sea level. On the slopes of the mountains are springs, vineyards, forests of Pine, olive trees and many other varieties of fruit trees. A popular tourist site on the island are the rock caves that are home to the Mediterranean seal which can is supposedly the only place they can be found along with Kastelorizo. The island's first inhabitant, according to mythology, was Iapetos, the son of Uranus and Gaea (Sky and Earth).
