The famous lagoon of Karpathos island is a truly wonderful beach.
Diakoftis beach is located 22 km south of Pigadia and 5 km of the airport of Karpathos. You can reach this beach on a dirt road, which starts from the western side of the airport. The area is filled with sand dunes and small coves, reminding of tropical beaches. Diakoftis is a beautiful beach with white sand, turquise waters and some smooth and flat rocks in places. There are not much facilities nearby, only a few parasols and a small cantina in the summer.
The water is shallow, you can walk easily into the beach, enjoy the soft sand, and feelings of a lagoon. On both sides of the beach the seabed is rocky, these places are nice locations to discover the marine life.
One drawback about Diakoftis is that the beach is located in the south, which is usually windy.
