Karpathos named on National Geographic’s list of breathtaking places around the world

·

The island of Karpathos has been named on National Geographic’s 2023 List of Breathtaking Places Around the World. 

The magazine’s editors chose five locations from each of five categories—community, environment, culture, family, and adventure—out of the total 25 that they felt would most likely wow travellers in 2023.

The article describes the island of Karpathos as “a growing centre of ecotourism” with “striking landscapes surrounded by the Aegean Sea.” 

Karpathos, part of the Dodecanese islands, is known as a rural and picturesque island that is becoming increasingly popular amongst tourists for the over a hundred beaches, many outdoor activities and picturesque villages. 

The island’s distance from the mainland, located roughly 242 sea miles from Piraeus, has worked in its favour to maintain its authenticity.

The island prides itself on the level of self-sufficiency that it maintains, and we know that locals work hard to prolong the tourist period, in order to avoid mass tourism and crowding the island.
