Kalymnos, Greece

The Greek island of Kalymnos, once famed for golden sponges, is now destined to be famous for golden rock.

The locals describe their small, friendly island as a rock climbing paradise in the Aegean. As you sail into the very heart of Pothia - past gleaming white houses and cafes which seem to overhang the harbour - and gaze at the perfect match of sun, rock and boundless blue sea, we think you will agree. That is even before discovering easy access to the crags, fine rock, and well-placed protection.

This is essentially a sports climbing holiday, but other activities include exploring the island, taking the 5-mile ferry ride to the Island of Telendos, walking or relaxing on the beach or in the friendly local tavernas.

We dine in local restaurants and travel the short journey to the crags on hired scooters (ride the bike yourself or go pillion!).
