Massouri, the most popular beach in Kalymnos and one of the best on the island, is situated 9 km away from Pothia. The wide sandy beach, the crystal clear waters and the beautiful view towards Telendos justify the above mentioned title. Massouri is equipped with umbrellas and sun-beds for hire, while the several restaurants and taverns will amaze you with their appetizers.
The road west out of Pothia leads to the village of Vothini then down to the inlet at Vlychadia where there are two pleasant bays each side of the small harbour, one a gentle curve of shaded sand the other a small strip of clean pebbles. Good taverns back both beaches and regular excursion leave Vlychadia for the cave at Kefala just along the coast south-west of Vylchadia.
Kalamies beach is located just before Emborios village. In there, a different feel occurs, with an ambiance that will take you a little back in time, as there are still tavern tables on the pebbles, palm leafs function as umbrellas and smiling people serve you their best delicacies.
