Karpathos island is one of the largest islands in the Dodecanese, a very popular group in Greece, located in the southeastern Aegean Sea. Because of its somewhat isolated position, the people of the island have somewhat peculiar dress and traditions from the rest of the country, which tourists recognize and similar to those of Crete or Cyprus.

If you're into sunbathing on breathtaking beaches then you've come to the right place, Skiathos has some of the best and most secluded stretches of sand a sailing enthusiast can wish for when visiting Greece. And since the night life isn't too shaby here either, Skiathos could be considered a good alternative for a young and intrepid sailing enthusiast.
