Kasteli bay in Amoopi (Ammopi beaches)

The beautiful Kastelia bay is a quiet, secluded beach in the southern side of Amoopi.

Kastelia bay is located in Amoopi (Ammopi), but it is well hidden by the hills of the village, and it is no so known as other beaches in the area. To reach Kastelia bay there is a small hiking trail from Votsalakia / Kastelia beaches, or just follow the road signs on the streets of Amoopi. 

This tiny beach in Amoopi is one of the hidden gems of Karpathos, with amazing water colours and calm atmospheres. Kastelia bay is slightly organized, you can find here some parasols and sunbeds for rent, a small parking lot, and some taverns and accomodations nearby. The waters of the beach are crystal clear, so this is one of the best snorkeling and diving sites not only in Amoopi, but also in Karpathos island. The rocky seabed is filled with marine life, so definitely worth wearing diving goggles at this place!

Around the the tiny beach there are concrete terraces, you can enter into the sea from here. Due to rocky seabed water shoes may needed! The life is much more peaceful and relaxing here, than anywhere else in the area, so Kastelia bay is a great place to hide from the crowds.
