Lefkos  

Lefkos - Karpathos (Greece)

Lefkos. Lefkos is a seaside resort on the central west coast of the Greek island of Karpathos. Once it was a fishing village. It’s located 33 kilometers (just over 20 mi) northwest of Pigadia (Karpathos city). Characteristic of Lefkos (white), are the beautiful sandy beaches that lie side by side in adjacent bays. The whole area is very beautiful.

When you drive through Arkasa to the north, along the west coast to Mesochori and Spoa, you pass Lefkos. The coastline is whimsical and wonderful at the same time. From high in the mountains you see Lefkos pop up in the distance. The view is extraordinarily beautiful.

At the bays you’ll find many restaurants and taverns situated next to the water. There’s a small harbor where local fishermen moor their boats. Throughout the area are many hotels and apartments. This is a place where tourists can surely relax.

Interesting sights in Lefkos include the ancient Roman cistern. A very short distance off the coast at Lefkos is an island called Sokastro, which was formerly a peninsula. On this small island one can see ruins from the Byzantine period and the Middle Ages.
