Kalymnos is best known as home of the Sponge Divers but the island has so much more to offer.
The day starts at 9am at the harbor of Mastichari where we board with our bus the ferry to reach Pothia less than an hour later.
Our first stop takes us on a hill housing the picturesque Monastery of Agias Savvas, to enjoy an amazing panorama over the capital town and harbor.
Leaving the animated capital behind us, we take the road leading us to the more peaceful side of Kalymnos. We continuously admire on the left the infinite Aegean Sea and the surrounding islands, and on the right the imposing rock formations and caves. These cliffs have built the reputation of the island as one of the best climbing spots in the world, attracting every year thousands of athletes.
Lunch is taken in a peaceful seaside village with a perfect beach.
The afternoon is spent crossing the beautiful citrus valley of Vathi and learn more about the sponge industry in Rina, also referred to as the Kalymnian Fjord. In this picturesque port surrounded by high cliffs and green waters, we will enjoy the tranquil scenery before heading back to Pothia again and return to Kos.
