Welcome to Kalymnos
Kalymnos is a Greek island in the southeastern Aegean. It belongs to the Dodecanese and is located west of the peninsula Bodrum (ancient Halicarnassus), between the islands of Kos and Leros. Kalymnos is an attractive island with a population of about 12,000 inhabitants, who mostly live in the capital and main port, Pothia.
The island is famous for its sponge fishing industry. Kalymnos is a mountainous island with impressive rocky crags, barren, but with plenty of herbs, such as thyme, sage, thimble and oregano, to which the excellent Kalymnos honey owes its fragrance. The island is surrounded by a large number of small islets, two of which are inhabited, Pserimos and Telendos. Because of the low level of tourism, Kalymnos is still very authentic and its inhabitants are very friendly and hospitable. Along with the beautiful landscape, this gives a particularly charming atmosphere to the island.
