Beach description

Located just 2km south of the sole port in Gavdos, Karave, you’ll find Korfos, also known as Bosom. A scenic footpath meanders along the coastline, connecting Karave to Korfos in about an hour’s walk. However, many tourists choose to take the bus that runs between Karave and Korfos. Nestled in a long bay, Korfos beach is a haven of beautiful sand and pebbles, with a smattering of rooms and taverns nearby.
