Beautiful Kalymnos awaits.

Explore the stunning island of Kalymnos on a holiday in Greece. Discover the crossroads of culture on this Greek island, which is actually closer to mainland Turkey than to mainland Greece. The natural landscape has long been shaped by volcanoes, earthquakes, and the natural erosion by the sea. Kalymnos' neighbouring island Telendos used to be part of Kalymnos, and is now separated by a channel of water almost a half mile wide. The island's natural geological formations are definitely an impressive sight. The caves at Skalia and Kefala are each well known by locals on Kalymnos.

Things to do

Pothia:

Visit the capital town of Pothia on your trip to Kalymnos. This small city is home to the Archipelago of Kalymnos, as well as several cultural and historical sites. The Archaeological Museum of Kalymnos and the Cathedral of the Transfiguration of Jesus are of particular interest. The cathedral features sculptures by renowned Greek sculptor Giannoulis Chalepas.

Caves:

Visit the various caves on Kalymnos, part of the island's rich geological formations. The cave at Skalia contains breathtaking stalactites and stalagmites, and is accessible from the town of Skalia. Kefala is on located the southwest corner of the island. It is 260 feet long with six rooms and a stalagmite said to look like Jupiter on a throne.

Sponge-diving industry:

Kalymnos is famous for its sponge-diving industry. Natural sponges can be found all around the island, and especially in the Pserimos. Sponge diving is generally still done free-hand with a harpoon and harvested individually. Make sure to purchase a local natural sponge while on the island of Kalymnos, and visit the Sponge Diving Museum in Pothia.

Rock-climbing:

Kalymnos has become famous for its wonderful rock climbing and bouldering, which has been available year round since the 1990s. The west coast is most popular, due to its limestone rock escarpment. Regular climbing festivals draw climbers from around the world.

Apollo Temple:

Visit the Apollo Temple on Kalymnos. Archaeological findings go back to the 1st millennium BC and include statuary, pottery, and inscriptions at the Sanctuary of Delian Apollo. Located outside the city of Horia, the Apollo Temple is currently the site of two Christian churches built in 5th and 6th centuries.

Castles:

Visit the 11th century Castle of Hora. The castle feature remnants of early life in the form of ruins of buildings and churches and an olive press. The Castle of Chrysocheria was built by the Knights Hospitaller, and contains remnants of life dating back to Neolithic period.

Kalymnos' weather is picturesque all year round. Summers reach up to 30°C, but the heat is particularly dry and therefore quite lovely. Mild winters get no colder than 10°C, with some precipitation in January and February. The Etesian winds create ideal conditions for athletes in search of prime windsurfing conditions.

Villa with a fantastic view.

5 of 5
We had a fantastic time. The balcony view was amazing one of the best on the Island. Everything was perfect including the accommodation and position, just a few steps down to the beach. Thank you so much to the owners they made us feel very welcome especially with the tour of the accommodation and the food which they left for us. Kalymnos Is a lovely friendly island and we hope to come again.
