    Ammopi is the largest village on Karpathos, Pigadia excluded. Actually it has not a real centre, but just a group of tourists facilities. Nevertheless, I would raccomend to go there, both for the fancy restaurants and for the stunning bays and beaches.

    Olympos is unique on the island, as it is the only mountain village on the island. Its shape is really pictoresque, a sort of amphiteather of white and blue houses. Olympos has been isolated from the rest of the island for many years, as there is just one white road. I have been told that such a road will be asphalted soon (Septembre 2010) so, in a word, the isolation of Olympos is going to finish. Do not miss to enter the small church and enjoy the breathtaking views...

    This is also a very nice beach, no sand but small stones, two sunbeds and umbrella costs 5 Euros, two nice tavernas.

    In Karpathos the best places where to eat fish are in Finiki. We tried two and were both fantastic. Demetrios has an amazing terrance on the sea, from which you can enjoy a breathtaking sunset (in Pigadia you are on the wrong side). Food is also excellent and relatively cheap for European standards.

    Favorite Dish: We had a very tasty grilled fish mix
