    Beach with beautiful colors
    Pebbled, very long beach, with cold, crystal clear water. Water also has an amazing color, you just can't stop looking at it and taking pictures. This beach is good for those who like to swim. In the afternoon, you won't need umbrella cause there is natural shades from big rocks. It is a bit windy so if you bring your own umbrella, you will have trouble putting it on the ground, but we managed. It is a bit far from Amoopi where we stayed, but the road is good. Parking is a bit tricky, but we always found a spot. Beach is beautiful and definitely worth visiting.

    More organized than other beaches on the island
    Apela is one of the few organized beaches of Karpathos, along with Amopi. Do not imgazine any beach bars and great luxuries, just a dozen of umbrellas and some taverns. The other beaches of Karpathos are totally isolate, although they are very nice. Apela has sand and a few pebbles once you get into the sea. The water is clean. To go there, you definitely need a car because buses do not go. Or go by boat from Pigadia.
