Snorkelen op Karpathos is prachtig, maar sommige strandjes zijn interessanter dan de ander als het om hun onderwater wereld gaat. Ga je voor het eerst naar Karpathos? Dan is dit lijstje iets voor jou. Vandaag deel ik mijn favorieten plekjes om te snorkelen.
Apella is really on top of my list! The beach itself is already beautiful and was not called the most beautiful beach in Greece for nothing, underwater it is just as beautiful. In the sea, you will soon find beautiful underwater rocks, where all kinds of fun fish can be found and who knows, you might even see some bigger fish swimming around!
Okay, Saria is actually a stand-alone island, but it’s practically part of Karpathos, so in my opinion, it should be included in the list! In my opinion, the best place to go when it comes to snorkeling on Karpathos. You go to Saria by boat from Pigadia or Diafani. Once at Saria, you will have a nice long break on the Palatia beach. I think this underwater world is even more beautiful than Apella! You can also swim/climb through a cave here (seen from the beach on the left side).
This beach is located near the airport. The beach and much of the water is sand, but there are rocks on the sides that make Diakoftis beach a beautiful bay. On this beach you can see some kind of streets (the left beach) and even find a very big bomb (the right beach)! I also saw sea spiders (is that what you call it?!).
Finally, I would like to include Achata in this list. This beach is located near Apella. This beach is – like all beaches on Karpathos 😉 – again beautiful! Throughout the sea you can find all kinds of coloured fish!
