General information

Arkassa Beach Karpathos: Arkassa is also known as Agios Nikolaos Beach. It is a beautiful sandy beach, but needs extra caution not to get drift by the waves. It is one of the best beaches of Karpathos for windsurfing, as there are always large waves. You must be a good swimmer to swim here and you should avoid the left side of the beach as there are markers in the water for currents. As for facilities, there are sunbeds and umbrellas, showers, as well as a tavern near the beach. It is reachable by car or by bus from Pigadia.

    Agios Nikolaos Arkassa excellent beach
    In many reviews they will tell you not to visit west side of Karpathos, but that is a mistake! Agios Nikolaos and Agios Theodoros are beaches in Arkassa that are wonderful. They are organized, but Theodoros is a bit far. Theodoros has no wind, it is partly pebbled, partly sandy and the water is cold. But it is a nice beach and has a clay and people that come here like to put that clay all over their body, it looks funny.
    But Agios Nikolaos is better beach. It is sandy, not that windy so you can put your own umbrella. It has showers too. And the water is so warm, you will love it! It has waves but they weren't big, they are good for children. The only bad thing was that it gets crowded in the afternoon, and some local Greeks that come are noisy and not that friendly. But we still think this beach is maybe the best in Karpathos.
