  • Although fine sand beach, but an awful lot of pollution. Away Eraar is not beautiful and bumpy. Maybe if the beach/dune was clean the review was more positive. Very nice view.

  • The beach of Diakoftis is located in the southermost point of the island of Karpathos. Undoubtedly all the visitors of the island are looking forward to reach it for its beauty and its look so much like an open-air swimming pool! To reach it you just have to drive along the airport on a dirt road and long before you expect it, you'll find yourself in this paradise! The beach of Diakoftis has very fine sand, clear and soft and its sea so crystalline and clear, makes the beach more photographed and loved, despite being one of the busiest. The beach of Diakoftis consists of 2 inlets, a larger one (with about forty of harness) and a smaller one (with only a dozen). Always be aware that here the wind is at home.. So you should avoid lying directly on the sand.. It might not be a good idea.. Definitely better to rent two sunbeds and a parasol at €10 per day. If you want to take a short lunch break, there is a bar/tavern available for all visitors. Little curiosity: Near the rocks you will find some fabulous shells!

  • SOS READ THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE ROAD TO THIS BEACH ! If you put GPS to go to this beach don't take the road that goes through the airport because it is a military base you can not pass. Take the road that goes all around the airport and you will get there. It is non asphalt road. It's paradise Beach and suggested to go at least one time but remember not to confuse the road as I mentioned before. I also uploaded a picture with the correct path of the road from the maps to see it easier! Like this post if you found it useful. Thanks :)
  • Perfect sea colors, nice white sand beach like in Philippines or Caribbeans. Unbelievably clear water. One of 4 things you must visit on this island
