Of all the Greek islands I had the chance to visit, I loved Karpathos the most.
The nature is wild, the sea is clear and the landscape changes quickly. A moment you are on the most-beautiful-almost-desert beach you’ve ever seen, and a moment later you are riding through a pines wood where the smell of sea and herbs blend perfectly.
Driving through the only road connecting the Northern part of the island, we reached the small villages of Olympos and Diafani, where fishermen still exist and women wear Karpathos traditional costume.
Since it was early October most touristy activities were suspended, like boat trips to Saria island, a protected habitat for the Mediterranean monk seal. Which means, we’ll have to come back again. Can’t wait.
