General Information

Karpathos is the second largest island of the Dodecanese after Rhodes with an area of 321km2.  

The island has a coastline of more than 160km and the Karpathian Sea surrounding it is one of the most tempestuous in the Aegean. The island is mostly mountainous, except for its most southern part, with deep canyons and arable valleys, steep rocky shores and exquisite beaches, as well as many forests, despite the great fires that plagued Karpathos in the past years. 

The island’s highest peak, Kali Limni (at 1.215m), is located at the Lastos mountain range.

Pigadia is the islands biggest port. A new port was built at Diafani in northern Karpathos in 1992. Until that time the tourists on board the liners could only reach Diafani in small boats.
