Diving experience
Once upon a time, Kalymnos used to be very famous for its sponge divers - nowadays it is part of a protected National Marine Park. Most of the beaches are rocky and you will find crystal clear turquoise water.The water temperature is between 18°C in spring, about 18°C in summer and around 22°C in fall.
We recommend to bring a light wetsuit (3-5 mm), fins and mask.


Siteseeing
Many monuments and natural beautys are available.
We recommend to visit Vathis village (with natural fiord), emporios, arginonta and the wide area of Panormos.

Although Kalymnos is a small island by any reckoning, it still has peaks exceeding 2000 feet in its center, so a boat excursion can give a feel for just how small yet mountainous it is. We sailed from the harbour on a beautiful, clear and hot morning and headed east towards the volcanic island of Telendhos, passing sheer cliffs, some with tiny chapels clinging to their escarpments, defying gravity and posing the question, "how on Earth did anyone manage to build them?"

Ask the reception about our excursions!!!
The history of climbing on Kalymnos is very recent. Only in 1996, an Italian climbers couple has discovered Kalymnos as a climbers' paradise.
There are many 'easy' routes (up to 6a) - of course there is no limit to the upper side !
The island offers a great number and variety of lime stone rocks with different kinds of difficulty degrees (overhangs, caves with stalactites, slabs...
So far, Kalymnos is still rather unknown on an international level and therefore you do not find the usual 'crowds' and 'queues' which are typical for the famous crags.
At the moment there are about 44 crags with more than 500 single pitch routes. There are also some multi-pitch routes available. As there are still many 'virgin crags' on Kalymnos, the equipping of routes is still going on (equipment with bolts).
