Kalymnos Mini Guide

I’ve Never Heard of Kalymnos?
It’s a bit of a hidden gem overshadowed by its close neighbour, Kos. Whilst Kos is busy and brash, Kalymnos is refined but still has plenty to do, much of it rather unusual. If you imagine your typical Greek island but with a little Italian flair, you won’t be far wrong.

How do I get to Kalymnos?
There are three main ways that tourists get to the island. An airport opened six years ago with flights from Athens. It’s easy to connect to Athens from the UK with several flight providers including budget airlines. You can also fly into Kos, again directly from the UK, and get the ferry from Kos across to Kalymnos. This way you get an excellent view of the island from the water. The third way is to take the ferry direct from Athens, calling in at several other islands on the way, again a tranquil and pretty way to see the Greek islands.

What is There to See and Do on Kalymnos?
If we had to recommend a Greek island then Kalymnos would be close to the top of our list. If you’re a climber, of whatever level of skill, the island’s cliffs and mountains are considered amongst the finest in the world. There are also many pretty villages and towns looking more like Italian Riviera locations than Greece. If you’re there at Easter, you’re in for a treat for the island celebrates the festival in style with dynamite thrown from the cliff tops giving an explosive feel to the celebrations.
