Kyra Panagia got its name from the church that lies at the top of the hill on the right side of the beach. It is considered a small corner of paradise and is among the most photographed beaches on the island, especially from the terrace of the now famous church with a red dome, which offers a spectacular view of the beach.
It is characterized by a wild look that makes it even more magical. The beach of Kira Panagia is a sandy beach with a semi circular shape and is surrounded by imposing white cliffs thus creating a spectacular scenery. It is located in the middle of the east coast of the island of Karpathos, 15 km northwest of Pigadia.The golden sand in combination with the fine pebbles, the pines that go down to the beach and the crystal clear deep blue water create a spectacular setting.
The beach is organized with a beach bar, umbrellas and sunbeds while nearby there are taverns, restaurants and hotels. Access is very easy through the provincial road Aperiou - Spoas, passing through the village of Aperi. It is close to the famous beach of Apella.
