Why go to Kalymnos

Kalymnos feels like an undiscovered eastern Mediterranean island full of Greek tradition and character. Holidays in Kalymnos are designed to be quiet and relaxing – just as they should be!

Kalymnos is one of the Dodecanese Greek islands promising holidaymakers beautiful weather, lovely beaches and fantastic family attractions...

Located just off Kos, the Island of Kalymnos is reached by flying to Kos (KGS) Airport and travelling onward by ferry. The ferry arrives at the capital of Kalymnos, Pothia, with its lovely mermaid statue and pretty houses with coloured windows.

For a lovely beach holiday, Kalymnos has mixed pebble and sand beaches, with a beautiful blue ocean backdrop. The island's west coast, which sweeps from the pretty village of Myrties, is home to the best beaches. Missouri is one of the principal tourist destinations, with a long sandy beach and water sports, hotels and a disco. From Kalymnos you can take the opportunity to go “island hopping” around some of the other Greek islands or perhaps visit Turkey for the day.

Steeped in history, Kalymnos has an ancient ruin in the form of the Hora Fortress, while the Byzantine monastery of Agios Savvas and the Citadel of the Knights of St John also make for great historic sightseeing. While on your Kalymnos holidays you can also visit a traditional sponge factory and the Sea World Nautical Museum.

Holidays to Kalymnos promise to be totally stress free. The island is dotted with quiet tavernas, cafés and restaurants and it has a lovely, relaxed way of life, making it the perfect destination for a calm and chilled-out break.
