|The village of Lefkos and the beaches of Kato Lefkos on the island of Karpathos in Greece|
The beach and the fishing port of Kato Lefkos and the slightly higher positioned village of Lefkos are located in the west of the island of Karpathos, 33 kilometers from the capital Pigadia or Karpathos Town. The village can be reached from Arkasa via the route along the coast that leads past the village of Finiki. In Lefkos itself you have to drive down towards the coast in order to get to the beach. In the bay where Lefkos is located you will find several restaurants and some shops. On the small island of Sokastro, which is located just northwest of Kato Lefkos, there are some remnants of a fortification from Byzantine times and a settlement from the Middle Ages. According to tradition, the Byzantine emperor Nikoforos Fokas had his hiding place here while he fought the pirates in the Mediterranean. The island of Sokastro was once attached to Karpathos, but broke lose during an earthquake in ancient times. Sokastro is uninhabited and you can go there with an excursion boat.
Near Lefkos are three or four beaches. The beaches at Lefkas belong to the best of the island. Leading from the end of the last beach, at Hotel Sarris, there is a path that after about ten minutes walking will end up at a naturist beach. Again, there are no facilities such as a taverna or umbrellas and sunbeds. 5 Minutes away is another small beach where you can swim nude.
The southernmost beach at Kato Lefkos is called Potali beach. The beach of Potali is a fairly quiet beach with a bit of sand, but mostly with gray pebbles and some stones. The beach is located in a bay of the same name (Potali Bay) and does not have many facilities. There are some rocks in the sea and there may be some waves here. There are some apartments and studios for rent at this beach and in the high season there are a number of umbrellas and sunbeds for rent. There are a couple of eateries in the area including the Potali Bay pizza restaurant and cafe.
A little bit more to the north is the actual Lefkos beach. It is an organized sandy beach where parasols and sun beds are for rent. Lefkos beach is located in a protected and a little enclosed bay. Here you will find a small fishing port and there is a wide choice of tavernas. There are also a number of accommodations on the beach and there is a bar and a mini market. The beach is shallow and sandy and perfectly safe for children. The turquoise waters in the bay are usually quiet. A little further to the north lies the next rather large beach with a tavern and a number of studios and apartments that are offered for rent.
