    Get a sponge for souvenir
    We had been to Kalymnos again more than 10 years ago. Greece has changed a lot over the last years. Ferries have improved a lot and hotels offer more facilities. In Kalymnos, we stayed at Massouri. This is a lovely small village with clean sea, not much crowded and not much isolate, The middle is always the perfect. In Massouri, we always had dinner at Kelly's restaurant. It has delicious dishes and an extensive menu. Kalymnos is very wild, it has rocks all around it and we could see many people mountain climbing. It seemed very hard, as the mountains were abrupt. But their effort was amazing and stubborn. There are not many sights to see on Kalymnos, only a Castle in Pothia and a Sponge Workshop. If you want to get a souvenir from Kalymnos, take a natural sponge. The locals have much tradition in fishing sponges with scuba diving.

    Clean and hot Massouri
    The beach of Massouri is found on the most popular area of Kalymnos. There are many beautiful beaches close by, like Myrties and Platis Gialos. Massouri is quiet but organized. It doesn't usually get crowded except in July and August. Waters are clean and hot. If you are lucky, you may catch an umbrella to protect from the sun. Otherwise, swim and go immediately at a beach bar to have a cold drink. Do not stay much on the beach if you are not protected because sun in Greece is too hot.
