Sailing Holidays in
Kalymnos

Let explore the Sailing Holidays area... Add Kalymnos to favorites

Kalymnos is located between Kos and Leros in the southeastern Aegean Sea and belongs to the Dodecanese Islands prefecture. The inhabitants’ occupation with sponge fishing led to economic growth and the island flourished, the effects of which are evident in the numerous neoclassic stately homes built in every corner of the island.

The island opened its borders to tourism only recently, after the extinction of this activity, and became famous for rock climbing. This is why the inhabitants have kept their traditional way of life and customs, which is giving to the island a unique atmosphere and a lot of charm.

Kalymnos is rich in picturesque villages where time seems to have stopped and hours are passing by pleasantly and quietly. Some villages board on the wonderful coast and others are hanging on the slopes of verdant mountains. Some of the most famous villages in Kalymnos are Emporio, Kantouni and Massouri.
