Between Rhodes and Crete, Karpathos stands out both for its imposing beauty and unexpected variety of landscape. There is a myth that says Prometheus, the Titans, and the Giants were all born on Karpathos. In Byzantine times it was the target of frequent pirate raids and the inhabitants moved slowly inland for safety: today’s villages nestle like eyries up in the hills.

Karpathos offers a beautiful combination of mountains and sea: wonderful rocky landscapes and some of the Mediterranean’s best beaches. The island’s biggest surprise, however, is the way of life of its inhabitants. Few other places in Greece have maintained so many of their ancestors’ traditions.

There is an international airport on the island, while there are daily air and sea connections with Piraeus, Crete, Rhodes and the nearby islands of the Karpathos Sea.
