Kyra Panagia beach Karpathos

Kyra Panagia beach is one of the most picturesque beaches of Karpathos, a true gem of the island, which is surrounded by breathtaking natural scenery.

Kyra Panagia is a small, but beautiful village, which is located 15 kilometers from Pigadia. The houses of the settlement were built at the exit of a deep valley, surrounded by steep cliffs and high mountains. Kyra Panagia can be reached by car, or motorcycle through a narrow and winding road, with amazing views to the Aegean Sea. At the end of the road you can find some parking lots, many of them offer some shade under the trees. To reach the beach of Kyra Panagia you have to walk through the village, but there are no particularly long distances, the village is quite small. 

Kyra Panagia beach is fully organized, visitors can find here some great taverns with traditional Greek food, rooms for accommodation, beach bars, and of course a mini market. The streets of the village and the area of the beach are filled with flowers such as large oleanders, bougainvilleas and geraniums.
