When you must not go to Karpathos
I love Karpathos, but this doesn’t count for everyone. You have people who are also infected with the Karpathos feeling, but others can’t stand the Island. And for Karpathos there exists no middle ground. You love it or you hate it. Hitting one or more of the following quotes you? Then you can better not go to Karpathos ..
If you do not like warm weather
Karpathos has from May till October good weather. Would you rather be in the rainy city Bergen? Then Karpathos is not your island.
If you can not stand calmness
Karpathos is all calmness. Beaches are not too busy and nightclubs are hardly to find. So you do not need to search.
If you like all-inclusive holidays
If I am right there are only three all-inclusive hotels on Karpathos. I do not like it. Karpathos is – in my opinion – not an island where it belongs. On Karpathos you should take a nice apartment and have diner outside all day!
If you want to ride at some yellow banana on the water
As I said Karpathos is all calmness. You will not find a yellow banana and you do not need to search for a bungee jump.
If you want to travel a very large area
Karpathos is only 50 kilometers long and 15 kilometers wide. So one day is enough.
If you do not like Greek food
I have heard of these people. Those people who do not like souvlaki, tzatziki, moussaka or gyros. I do not understand, but if you put yourself in this category then stay at home please.
If you do not like hospitality
Greeks are very hospitable. Quickly give stuff away for example from their own garden, they invite you at home and love to help you if you have any troubles. Nothing for you? Stay at home.
If you do not like ouzo
Do I need to say more?
If you do not like a starry sky
Karpathos has a beautiful starry sky, where you can stare at for hours after dark. Nothing for you? Even then stay home!
