Karavas’ ideal climate and its beautiful beaches contributed to the creation of small hotels and the development of local tourism. A few years before the Turkish invasion, Karavas had experienced a rapid growth in tourism. Modern hotels were constructed and new restaurants catered to the needs of locals and foreign tourists. Some of them were the hotels “Clearhos”, “Neraida”, Zephyros”, “Mare Monte” and the holiday resorts “Fontana Amoroza”, “Prasini Kilada”, “Mili”, “Chrysos Vrahos”, “Platania” and “Pente Mili”.
