Kalymnos july 2012, Kalamies beach
Kalymnos july 2012, Kalamies is one of the most isolated beaches of Kalymnos located 23 km north west of Pothia, the island's capital.

The beach uniquely combines the lush greenery that covers the top of the cliffs with the clear blue sky, leaving an everlasting impression on mind.

Boats of local fishermen and sponge divers interrupt the view momentarily providing a peek into the lives of the people of this sleepy hamlet.
