Karpathos Finiki

Finiki is located almost opposite to the village of Fri and the small Buka harbor of the island of Kasos. It is the marine communication point between the two islands. The small taverns of the village offer fresh fish and there are plenty of facilities with rooms to let. Finiki is considered a safe natural harbor. The Phoenicians, from whom the village’s current name derived, had the same thought and used the village as Arkasa’s (the ancient Arkesia) harbor during the 11th century. Today, fishing boats are tied at its cement dock and right before the beach you can see the effigy of the “Immacolata” ship that set out in 1944 from Finiki with a crew of 7 brave men to convey the message of Karpathos’s rebellion to Alexandria and the Greek government.
