Karkinagri in Ikaria

Karkinagri has nearly 300 permanent residents and before the road was built it was set as isolated as Manganitis. It is a typical fishing village with a few tavernas and pensions.

Personally, I'm not particularly fond of Karkinagri, I would not go there if it were not for writing about Ikaria. I have been here twice and each time I have thought that this must be the village as Zeus forgot. I can not really say why, but Karkinagri makes me think of the film Deliverance.

 

Karkinagri. Ikaria. Greece.

There is really nothing wrong with Karkinagri, but after the long journey to reach the village, it feels a bit like an anti-climax to arrive. Was it only this? Yes it was.

Along the coast a narrow dirt road leads from Karkinagri to a beach called Trapalo. I have not been there so I know nothing about the actual beach. It is said that there is a small snack bar at the beach, but I myself have not been able to verify the information.
