|The village and the beach of Diafani on the island of Karpathos in Greece|
Diafani is a traditional fishing village that is located in the northeast of the island of Karpathos at a distance of little less than 70 kilometers from the capital Pigadia. The village is also the second port of the island and many of the ferries that visit Karpathos also stop at Diafani. In ancient times Diafani was the harbour of the present village of Olympos. You can reach Diafani by land via the route over Aperi and Spoa but in principle there is a fairly regular connection with the ferry between Pigadia and Diafani (Anek Lines). It takes about an hour to make the trip but the frequency and the sailing time is also a bit dependent on the crowds and the season. In the high season there are also excursion boats that sail from Pigadia to Diafani to visit the traditional village of Olympos from there. From Diafani it is a 10-minute drive to Olympos (the distance is about 8 kilometer). From Diafani there are excursion boats to the islet of Saria which is located north of Karpathos.
In Diafani you will find apart from the village beach (a pebble beach with grey pebbles) a second beach within walking distance, the beach of Vandana. Vandana beach is located to the north of the village and can be reached via a walking path (the walk takes about half an hour and the beach is very quiet). Along the way you will encounter several small bays with beaches and if you continue even further you will pass more beaches. In the village of Diafani itself is an organized pebble beach where you can rent umbrellas and sunbeds. Around the beach there are a couple of tamarisk trees that also offer a bit of shade. There is a wide choice in restaurants and there are different types of small-scale accommodations, from a number of hotels to apartments and studios that are for rent. There are mini markets and there are three churches in Diafani of which the Zoodochos Pigi is the largest. It is shaped in the form of a cross and has a large bell tower.
