In reply to: Kavafis 's message, "Karpathos update" on Mon, August 27 2018, 12:18:57
My girlfriend and I visited Karpathos in the first two weeks of July 2018. We rented a car and searched the island for beaches, being based in Ammoopi; there was no sign of nudity in all Amoopi beaches. Only a group of 4 topless italian girls, that were based in our hotel.
Exploring the island clockwise, we found two small secluded beaches were we practiced nudism, in google maps they are named "Tati Beach". From the road to the airport, you turn right after the 4 hairpin turns, following "Poseidon beach". After less than 1km you arrive at Damatria beach, a textile beach, then turn left and drive or walk 600m, until the road is usable by normal cars and the road enlarges allowing 3 cars to careful park. To the right there are some stairs and you can easily arrive to the beach. No shadow until late afternoon, and a splendid tourquoise sea. Walking beyond the first beach there is a second one. The maximum crowd was 3 couples in both beaches combined. It was a pity that there was a lot of garbage from previous sunbathers.
We also visited Diakoftis beach, but we don’t see any nudist, neither we explored to the left to the nude beach described by Kavafis.
We explored from Paradise beach to the south in direction of Kastello-Makrys Gyalos (Meneton Karpathou), and on the western side of the Peninsula we found 2 small cove beaches, a bit more than 2 km from the parking. We arrived there by car, and were the only sunbathers. Obviously nude.
Driving back from Diakoftis to Pounta, driving 2,5km from the parking, quite after the road makes a “S” we found a little bay with a little parking. We sunbathed there three times and found only nude sunbathers. Sometimes some people from the cars slowed down and parked to take a look; half of these stopped and were nudists. The beach was very windy.
We too visited Kato Lefkos, and confirmed everything that wrote Kavafis. We visited also the second beach and happily found only nudists, almost from Germany and Netherlands. I can add that the first beach can be accessed form some stairs that are in front of “Golden Sand” Taverna, than walking northward for 50m.
On the east coast we visited more beaches; we went to Kato Lakos and we were obliged to leave the car about 1km before the beaches, given the bad road. We only reached the easternmost beach and were the only people.
My favourite beach is Apella (or Appela or Appella). You can drive quite to the tavern or the parking closer to the beach, 2,4km down from the main road between Aperi and Spoa. The beach itself is always very crowded by textiles, that arrive with cars and boat trips from Pigadia, but walking beyond the promontory to the east, there is a splendid beach, with perfect privacy, inhabited only by nudists couples, almost half of them were from Italy. From the Taverna is a 700m walk through the textile beach and through some woods, but don’t think to wear only flip flops. There is also a short section equipped with a rope, but it’s well worth the walk.
We visited also Agios Nikolaos. You can reach the beaches from Spoa, 4,5km from the fork with the main road. The nude beach is 400 m from the car park. Leaving the parking and walking northward, you will pass a first textile beach with tavernas, then an easy passage through some houses will bring you to the second beach. The northern part of which was almost nude: a nude Italian family, some couples mixed nude-textiles, the four Italian girls of Amooppi being half nude, half topless. Walking further you will round the cliffs using a concrete path, and is possible to reach some “exclusive” spot, quite sufficient for a handful of people.
Finally, the favourite beach of my girlfriend is far in the north. Ii is called “Vananda or Vananta or Balaskas”. It’s just a 3 km drive from Diafani, to the north (you have to drive first 500m to the east, following the covered creek, than turn right), and we found fresh water, shadow, and a Taverna (officially opened but no one on sight to buy food ). We found about 20 people, all nudes: singles, families, couples.
