Kalymnos is a beautiful island of the Dodecanese, located close to the Turkish coast. Due to the island’s distance from Athens, the best way to reach Kalymnos is by flight to Kalymnos from the Greek mainland.

The island stands out for its amazing rocking landscape that has made Kalymnos a top climbing destination! In fact, climbing in Kalymnos is such a popular activity that a climbing festival takes place on the island every year.

Kalymnos also has a long sponge making tradition. Even though the islanders don’t fish sponges for living anymore, you’ll find many sponge sellers at the beachfront of Porthia, the island’s capital.

Moving away from Porthia, you’ll find nice beach resorts, such as Myrties and Kantouni, where many Kalymnos hotels are located. You won’t have to try to find the perfect seaside village to spend your holidays in Kalymnos!

Kalymnos Greece is located close to the Turkish coast, at the southeastern Aegean Sea and belongs to the Dodecanese group of islands. Thanks to its location, it’s perfect for island hopping to the nearby islands of Kos, Leros, and Patmos.

Kalymnos is famous for one thing in particular: its rocky landscape. Due to it, the island has shaped up to be a top climbing destination and already counts many climbing clubs. What’s more, the International Climbing Festival is taking place every year in Kalymnos, attracting climbers from all over the world!

If you dream of holidays by the beach, Kalymnos is a go-to destination. In general, the best seaside resorts are located on the western side of the island. In Myrties, Kantouni, and Emporios, you’ll find many Kalymnos hotels, studios, and apartments. These seaside resorts also have amazing organized beaches with crystal clear waters.

One of the must things to do in Kalymnos is a trip to the neighboring island of Telendos. Telendos is a remote tiny island that boasts an incredible natural landscape.
