Situated between Kos and Leros, Kalymnos is the fourth largest island in the Dodecanese.
The Kalymnian landscape is rocky, its majestic mountain slopes fragrant with thyme, sage and oregano – essential ingredients in the delicious honey for which the island is famous.
Kalymnos is best known as home of the world’s finest sponge divers. The sea has always been a focal point for island life and its colorful traditions and sense of community remain almost unchanged.
You can come to Kalymnos either by ship (from Piraeus or from Dodecanese islands on a daily basis) or by airplane (from Eleftherios Venizelos international airport directly to Kalymnos or via Kos).
Kalymnos National Airport is located a few kilometers from Pothaia (or Pothia), the capital of Kalymnos.
The Port of Kalymnos or, as it is locally known, Póthia is the main harbour of the island.
