Karpathos Island Villages

Karpathos island has ten villages lived in by approximately 7,000 people total. Most of the villages preserve intensively the traditional style of the island. The capital is surrounded by the villages of Menetes, Arkasa, Pyles, Othos , Volada, Aperi . In the North of the island someone can find the villages of Mesochori, Spoa and Olympos the northern village of the island with great folkloric and architectural interest.

The villages of Karpathos form two circles, which make the tour of the island. Beginning from Pigadia you can follow the way up to Aperi, pass from Volada, continue to Othos following the mountainside of the highest mountain of the island, Lastos.
Then passing from Pyles the street starts to descend and leads to the west side of the island and towards the west coast side. Following the road and passing through Foiniki, anglers’ village, we enter the village of Arkasa and head to Menetes high up the mountain. This is the last stop before we return to Pigadia and complete the small circle.
The longer circle excludes the villages Volada, Othos and Pyles. From Aperi instead of turning left to Volada, Othos and Pyles, the visitor can follow the road to the right and head to the north part of the island. He will surely enjoy the extraordinary view of the east part of the island having on his left impressive mountainsides and on his right the seaside.
