Perfectly unexpected, Apella Beach serves as a picturesque beach with turquoise-emerald water and white pebbled shores on the edge of the neighboring mountainous region. The sparkling clear water is refreshingly cool and offers great snorkeling, particularly around the rocky areas. On the beach, you can rent sun umbrellas and lounge chairs, or pick up a snack from small food vendors. The road to reach the beach is narrow and steep, with limited parking.

Apella Beach reviews
Pretty crowded and sunbeds were 15 euros, however we did not mind because the water was perfect and well suited for snorkeling!

We've just returned from the Greek island of Karphatos. The Apella beach was absolutely one of our favourite ones. It's really beautiful. From Pigadia it takes about 30 minute by car. We can't miss.... more

Amazing beach but the coast isn’t sandy…it is small (mostly) white gravel The seawater is clear and it has amazing blue 😍
Nice beach. The street is easy if you are used to Greek beach streets. The tavern is average…don‘t expect to much but it’s worth for a lunch break. They also serve at the beach if you have your sunbed at the beginning of the beach. Nice people who are offering the sunbeds and in the tavern. Sunbeds are 15 eur full day and 10 eur half a day. If you want it to be more quite, go to the end of the beach. May there will come a boat, but there is plenty of space. You will also find trees to have some shadow. Parking is special…you need to find a place ;-)
