Fans of watersports will surely appreciate the southern side of Karpathos, which transforms into a surfing hub in the summer, thanks to the strong Meltemi wind. Make the most of the fierce waves, and try windsurfing or kitesurfing in the Afiartis area near Karpathos Airport. There are three bays to choose from, depending on your skills; opt for the Chicken Bay if you’re a beginner, the Gun Bay if you’re more experienced and the Devil’s Bay if you’re a pro. You can also take a proper windsurfing class at Makris Gialos Beach or swim in the turquoise waters amid roaming windsurfers if you feel like laying low.
