Welcome to Western Kalymnos
The best of Kalymnos is concentrated on its west side. Here you'll find clusters of tamarisk-shaded beaches, gas-blue bays and the three resort villages of Myrties, Masouri and Armeos. This is the island's best area for climbing, attracting a seasoned crowd of global climbers (Masouri tends to be their village of choice), with organised climbing along the nearby cliffs. The magical islet of Telendos, opposite languid Myrties, is also home to some great climbing routes. Lapped by gentle waves and boasting a clutch of pleasant tavernas and places to stay, Myrties is more low key than Masouri.
