Whether you are looking for an action packed holiday or a relaxing visit, you will be quite astonished by the choices on offer on such a small island! Kalymnos is only about 15.2 nautical miles away from Kos and is the perfect choice for a day trip. Once the centre of the sponge diving industry, Kalymnos is nowadays an internationally acknowledged rock climbing destination. The first picture-perfect view to see upon arriving on the island is one of Pothia, the capital and main port of Kalymnos.
If you have booked one of our larger boats, we highly recommend that you go straight to Vathy - a fishing village which is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the Dodecanese. Vathy looks like a fiord and lots of people go for a swim in the clear water of Rina. If you dare, there is a diving platform on the cliffside where kids and adults jump off and into the water. Treat yo' self to a mouth-watering, traditional seafood meal in one of the local taverns and you won’t regret it!
The best beaches of Kalymnos can only be reached through sea, such as Kampi, which is the closest one to Vathy and will take you around 10 minutes to reach.If you're your own captain, our crew will instruct you on how to get there.
Even in the most remote places in Greece, hospitality is second to none and Telendos is a living example. It may feel extremely hot in the height of the season but there are a fews taverns to eat and enjoy some shade. This picturesque island was a part of Kalymnos in antiquity, but was later on separated due to a devastating earthquake. You can drive your kosrentaboat straight to Hohlakas, the islands’ main beach.
