from the  Diafani  A to Z list  of  the website  WELCOME TO DIAFANI  (

There are no sand beaches in the north of Karpathos, but you will find beaches of pebbles or tiny sea washed stones and shells which provide a beautiful clear sea for swimming and snorkelling.

There are well marked paths through the olive groves and pine trees to all the nearby beaches.
There are also local Kaiki boat owners who have the safety permit to take visitors to further beaches along the coast and to the island of Saria.

With the exception of the small bay of Vananda there are no bars or tavernas on any of the beaches in and around Diafani. You will need to take your own picnic and drinking water.

There are no sunbeds or sun umbrellas to rent on the beaches. Nobody will come and try to sell you anything on these beaches. You may even have the whole beach to yourself.
