Lefkos beach (main beach of Lefkos) in Karpathos island

The main beach of Lefkos village has one of the most beautiful colours in Karpathos, a true gem of the island.

Lefkos village is far famous from its amazing beaches, which are listed among the best beaches in Karpathos island. The village is located in the western side of the island, but is can be accessed easily by car or by bus. Lefkos is surrounded by three large bays, which are known as Lefkos beaches, each one is a little different and has its own uniqueness. The first beach after arriving to Lefkos is the main beach of the village, it lies directly next to the main road. This beach is a love at first sight - the turquoise and emerald colours of the Aegean Sea are breathtaking! 

Lefkos beach

This bay is the most organized beach in Lefkos village with parasols and sunbeds for rent, and also several taverns and coffee bars in the background. The seabed is filled with fine golden sand and it is quite shallow, one of the most shallow beaches in Karpathos island! This beach is well protected from the winds and the wave also, so it is especially ideal for families with small children.

On the western side of the bay there can be find the small port of Lefkos, a picturesque tiny port with some fishing boats.

The main beach of Lefkos is the most crowded beach of the area during high season months, but even so this is a peaceful and quiet place in Karpathos island.
