The Greek island of Karpathos has been named as one of the 33 cheapest destinations to travel in 2018 according to Forbes, one of the most widely-read magazines in the world.

Each of the destinations listed by Forbes magazine as one of the best budget places to travel across the globe in 2018 were based on reviews and suggestions provided by esteemed travel experts. The island of Karpathos, in particular, was nominated by Elizabeth Avery, founder of Solo Trekker 4 U, a website with deals and tips on solo travel savings whose motto is “Top Quality Lower Prices”.

As stated by Laura Begley Bloom, author of the aforementioned Forbes list “The Greek Island of Karpathos offers much of the same allure as chic Santorini and Mykonos, but with the advantage of lower prices”. The article goes on to say that “Karpathos is the second largest of the Dodecanese Island chain, which includes better-known Rhodes, and dates back to the 5th century BC thus offering history buffs a way to have two trips in one, combining sun and sand with a step back in time. Ancient ruins can still be seen at Aghia Anastasia, while the island’s history can be studied in more detail in the Archaeological Museum. Beyond lounging on white-sand beaches, active travelers can choose from a selection of sports: fishing, windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving and sailing. Away from the well-worn tourist path, Karpathos has hillsides covered in vibrant wild flowers and small villages like Arkasas to explore. The island’s capital, Pighadia, is a modern city, but in small towns like Olympos, traditional dress is still worn day-to-day and life has the authentic feel of the past. Karpathos has many apartments and studios to rent, resulting in real savings. There are plenty of budget hotels under $100. Multiple restaurants and tavernas dot the countryside, where you can savor traditional Greek dishes at low prices”.
