With its favourable Mediterranean climate, gentle breezes and crystal clear waters, the beautiful island of Kalymnos is a popular destination for watersports enthusiasts. Whether you're looking to indulge in a sport of windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving or snorkelling the island has the right mix to suit your needs. Scuba diving in particular is such a popular pastime here that the island has its own annual diving festival.
With its impressive mountainous landscape and stunning scenery, its no surprise that Kalymnos has fast become one of Europe's premier climbing destinations. Since the late 1990's climbers have been flocking to the island to experience its challenging climbs and fantastic rock formations. New routes are tested annually, and the island hosts an international climbing festival each October to showcase its strength in this area. Some of the best routes are centred around the popular resort of Massouri, so accessibility is great.
