Kalymnos Holidays

Kalymnos Holidays – Soak up the sun like a sponge

Famous for its sea sponges, Kalymnos is a delightful island towards the northern end of the Dodecannese group. It is a quiet place, most suited to family holidays, where life moves at a slow pace, especially away from the modest capital, Pothia. You can spend a lovely time lounging on the fine sandy beaches around Myrties or Emborios, followed by tasty meals at seashore tavernas.

There is also enough of an interior, with its two long valleys surrounded by sandstone ridges, to offer good hiking in the cooler months and the craggy coastline has become quite popular with climbers.
