The southernmost settlement of Karpathos is a small village, recommended especially for the surfers.
Afiartis is located just 2 km north of the airport and 13 km south of Pigadia, on the main road between the airport and Amoopi. The atmosphere of the village is very calm, there are only a few houses, apartments and small hotels. Here you will see mostly surfers that enjoy the sun, the sea, and the surf of course. Afiartis has several coves with coarse sand and crystal clear waters, but you should be careful when entering the sea because there are flat slippery rocks at some points.

Most of the area is flat plain, you can't find high mountains or hills here.
