It's not often that you visit somewhere in Greece that is becoming LESS touristy, but Kalymnos is just that. The package tour companies have in the main pulled out leaving only independent travellers and climbers to fill the void. The result is a very Greek place to spend your time....
Pothia is the main town and port - bigger than Kos town, but with very few concessions to tourism (the cafes on the front, while stylish, are not tourist traops - Greek prices). THe buildings are very attractive and the setting stunning. I loved it - very vibrant and resolutely Greek!
I stayed in Massouri, which has got just the right amount of bustle at night...Telendos is beautiful and peaceful and Emborios - I fell in love....
