The island of Kalymnos Greece is rich in picturesque villages where time seems to have stopped and hours are dropping pleasantly and quietly. Some villages boarding the wonderful coast and others are hanging on the slopes of verdant mountains. The inhabitants have kept their traditional way of life and customs, which is giving to the island a unique atmosphere and a lot of charm.
Traditions are still maintained and celebrated on this beautiful island, reminiscing the sponge-fishing boat departures, the moments of separation and then the celebration of their successful return. Nowadays tourism has become a second resource of economic growth for all residents, who every summer see their island full of visitors mainly those who appreciate the islandís tranquility and lovely beaches

The beaches on Kalymnos Greece are very beautiful. Some are extending over kilometres while other are nestled in small, secluded coves. With golden sand or smooth pebbles, all the beaches of the island have mirror-like waters varying on a rich palette of blue.

Following the beach road you can visit the Church Of Christ (or Saviour). Its temple is the work of a well know sculptor of Tinos Island, Giannouli Chalepa and its mural paintings were carried out by local painters. The beautiful buildings and green background complete the islandís image. At the dock the small touristic shops filled with sponges highlight Kalymnos character. The processing sponge workshops are worth visiting. If you have time to spare then the Archaeological Ė Folklore Museum is also worth visiting
