Many people say Karpathos is actually two islands in one. Northern Karpathos is a ruggedly mountainous region, while the island's southern part is filled with as many olive groves and beautiful beaches as many better known Greek islands. No stay on this island would be complete without a visit to Olympos, where the stone houses and their residents' traditional customs have remained unchanged for centuries. The ruins of an ancient city called Potideon lie near Pigadia's modern port.
Karpathos is tied with the Crete community of Ierapetra as the Greek territory with the highest annual mean temperature. Perfect weather for the beach begins in May and lasts until October. Karpathos enjoys a dryer climate than other Dodecanese islands. The refreshing Karpathos summer breezes not only provide perfect windsurfing conditions, but keeps mosquitoes away from the beaches.
Most Karpathos roads are paved and easy to navigate with car rental in Karpathos Airport. The best quality roads run along the island's west coast, while most interior roads are dirt paths. Drivers should begin any excursions with full tanks as service stations are few and far between in Karpathos. Extra caution should be taken when driving in the island's mountainous and isolated north.
