Kalymnos is not especially famous for it's beaches, however you'll still find a number of good beaches and bays dotted around the island. If you're looking for an organized beach with a sunbeds, parasols and a selection of watersports, the beach at Massouri is a great choice. Despite being livelier than most of the island's beaches you'll still find plenty of room to unwind and enjoy the favourable climate. If you prefer things to be a little more laid back, you'll find the picturesque resort of Myrties is more relaxed, and if you are willing to hang on until dusk you'll be able to enjoy some of the most fabulous sunsets over the island of Telendos
In the past sponge fishing was the main industry in Kalymnos, however since the development of synthetic sponges the industry has slowed and now there is just one sponge factory left on the island, in the island's captial of Pothia. Here you can see the processes behind sponge production, from fishing to shelf.
