Situated in the Aegean Sea, Kalymnos is part of the Dodecanese island group. It’s well known for its sponge fishery and rock climbing; however its endless beaches and clear blue waters also attract many holiday makers in the summer months.
The town of Masouri lies in the north west of Kalymnos. It is the most developed holiday resort on the island, yet it managed to retain its authentic Greek life style. Other popular holiday destinations on the island are Pothia and Myrties. Most beaches are made up of pebbles; however on the west coast you’ll find some sandy ones.
Alternate your beach routine with some sightseeing and head to the Castle of “Chrysoherias”. It was built by the Knights of Rhodes on ancient byzantine ruins. Another interesting sight to visit is the Church Of Christ which is perched on a hill overlooking Pothia offering magnificently panoramic views. The archaeological museum in Pothia is also worth a visit while you’re here.
