I love to enjoy a cocktail during holidays! On a bar, with the perfect view and a cocktail is surely an idea of a holiday. At Karpathos, you can find several cocktail bars and today I share my three favorites with you.


Cocktailbar Karpathos



This bar can be found in the village of Amoopi. Skala is located in a beautiful building overlooking Amoopi and Lakki beach. The Dutch owner Tom has started his own bar in 2007. Besides some tasty snacks, he serves various drinks and cocktails of course. Besides cocktails, he also serves several milkshakes, including the unique ouzo milkshake. Highly recommended by everyone!

En Plo

In the capital, on the boulevard, you will find the cocktail bar En Plo. They are open all day and besides cocktails, they reserve also breakfast (recommended by me!), lunch and dinner. They serve many types of cocktails and every evening between 5 and 8 pm they have Happy Hour, so the cocktails have a special price then. It is located very central on the boulevard so you can really enjoy all the things that are happening in the harbor. I prefer to enjoy it on the afternoon when the big boats arrive from Rhodes and Crete. It’s a madhouse in the harbor with cars, buses and people, and that’s quite nice to watch 😉



Stema bar is my favorite one! The atmosphere is amazing here! Manolis is the owner of the bar and they have a beautiful location. You can find the bar on a small street in Arkassa. The bar has a lovely view over the village and the sea. It is one of the best places to see the sunset! Manolis is a wonderful man who is very nice and has such good humor. This really is the place if you’re looking for a relaxed vibe to enjoy your cocktail and if you want to enjoy it until the early hours. Around an hour or 8, the bar open and certainly in high season, they are so open until 5:00 pm!
