Karave is not a village, it is the small port of Gavdos
island. It is located on the east coast of the island and connects it with Paleochora and Chora Sfakion on Crete
. There are only a few buildings with a travel center and a small restaurant. Next to the port you will spot a small beach but usually no one uses it because Sarakiniko
, the largest and most developed beach on the island is 2 km away. There is a local bus on Gavdos which circulates between the villages and some of the beaches. The main village Kastri
is 6 km from Karave, and Tripiti
, the southernmost point of Europe is approximately 7 km away.
