Hints from Harry

greece greek islands kalymnos telendosMany people come here for the rugged rock climbing activities you can find on the island. There are spectacular limestone walls backing the resorts. There are 21 documented climbs.

It's also a great island for hikers.

The Greek island beach sports and sunbathing are popular here, too.

But perhaps on of the nicest thing about Kalymnos is the traditiional Greek feel the place has, in spite of the tourism that is found on the island. See more photos of Kalymnos | Photos of Kalymnos II
