I love drinking cocktails on holiday! Sitting at a bar, with a perfect view and a cocktail is the ideal image of a holiday. On Karpathos there are several places where you can enjoy cocktails. We share our favourites with you in this blog.
This cocktail bar is located in the village of Ammoopi. Skala bar is located in a beautiful building with a view of the beaches of Ammoopi. The Dutch owner Tom started his own bar here in 2007. Apart from some tasty snacks, he serves different drinks and also cocktails. Besides cocktails, he also has several milkshakes, including the ouzo milkshake. Highly recommended 🙂
In the capital, you will find cocktail bar En Plo at the harbor. Besides serving breakfast (highly recommended!), lunch and dinner, they also have a cocktail menu. They serve lots of different cocktails and every evening between 17.00 and 20.00 there is Happy Hour and all cocktails are extra cheap. You can come here in the evening as well as during the day and it is very centrally located at the harbour. I prefer to sit here when the big boat from Rhodes or Crete arrives. It is always a chaos of cars, people and buses. There is always something to see and that makes it cosy.
For us, En Plo is number 1 when it comes to the best cocktails on Karpathos!
Stema bar is my favourite cocktail bar! The atmosphere is just great. Manolis is the owner of this bar and they have a beautiful location. The bar is located in a small street in Arkassa. It has a very nice view on the village and also on the sea and the sun sets here as well. Really a special place 😉 Manolis is a wonderful man who is full of energy and humour. This is the best location to enjoy a cocktail. Around 8 o’clock the bar opens and especially in high season they are open till 05.00 o’clock!
Just like En Plo, the cocktail bar Anoi is located at the harbour of Karpathos. You can’t miss it with the blue building and the high stairs! There are several floors where you can sit and also many people sit outside on the stairs.
They serve special cocktails that are served very nicely. The price is a bit more expensive than the other cocktail bars, but not less worth it!
