If you are an ambitious sport climber, then the island of Kalymnos, which covers an abundant 100 km², is an almost ideal destination in the Aegean Sea. The village of Massouri in the west of the island is the tourist center. From here you can go to the climbing hotspots. Kalymnos is the island name, and the island capital of the same name is alternatively called Pothia. The trip here takes half an hour by ferry from Kos. Historical sights are the castle of Chora or the white rock monastery in the village of Panormos in the west of the island. On Kalymnos you can enjoy a sunny vacation all year round - for example in the bathing paradise at Vlichadia Beach or at the beach of Palionisos.
