Swimming in Kalymnos

Kalymnos is the island of divers, swimmers and sailors – and they have some of the most beautiful beaches you can imagine to nurture their love of the sea.

In fact, the island’s name in Ancient Greek meant “beauty of the sea.” You’ll find out why very soon, and swimming and exploring Kalymnos’ gorgeous beaches will quickly become two of your favorite activities.


This secluded, almost tucked-away beach is perfect if you like to feel like you’re the only person in the world. Its pebbly shore and clear blue waters will reward you for your half-hour hike there.
