Explore Greece's rocky, undiscovered wilderness

Tucked in the southeastern Aegean Sea near the coast of Turkey, Kalymnos is part of the fascinating Dodecanese chain of islands. The fact that they're somewhat less known than some of the other Greek Isles means they're a great place for relaxing away from the crowds. It also means that there's plenty of relatively unexplored scenery and landscape at your disposal, including several peaks that draw rock climbers from all over the globe. A Kalymnos vacation rental will also put you in a wonderland of natural honey production, so bring your sweet tooth.

From the rockiest peaks to the sweetest treats

If you've always been dying to try rock climbing or bouldering, now's your chance. There's so much of it on Kalymnos, they even host an annual International Climbing Festival. Showing its true diversity, the island is equally famous for its honey production and traditional sponge diving, both of which you can witness in person at many places throughout Kalymnos. And, of course, this is Greece, so the beach will never be too far away from your Kalymnos vacation rental. There are plenty of secluded stretches for working on your tan, frolicking in the sea, or catching a killer sunset.

Time to learn all about sponge diving (you know you want to)

Museums abound on Kalymnos, with exhibits on everything, from the island's sponge-diving history at the Nautical Museum, to customs and clothing at the Maritime and Folklore Museum, to ancient history at the Archaeological Museum. Prefer castles? You can choose from the Castle of Chora or the Castle of Chrysocheria if you want to revisit medieval times, or go further back to the 7th century at Kastelli Fortress. Towering above the capital of Pothia are also the ruins of a Byzantine castle containing a 4th-century church.

Where the Meltemi meets the thunderstorm

Generally speaking, you can expect rainy, mild winters and sunny, hot summers when you're heading to your Kalymnos vacation rental. Nearly all the rain comes between October and March, frequently in the form of thunderstorms. Lows can dip into the 40s in the coldest months of January and February. The northwest Meltemi winds blow in the summer months, keeping highs in the 70s and 80s from much of May through October, though temps have been known to soar into the 90s in the peak months of July and August.

Who would fly thousands of miles to climb a mountain?

Plenty of people, if this island is any indication. Your Kalymnos vacation rental will put you near not 1, but 4 craggy ranges that attract climbers from across the world. In between, you'll find fertile valleys where the locals grow olives, oranges, and grapes. The slopes are covered in fragrant herbs that help make that world-renowned honey so delicious (obviously, you should expect to see some bees). There are plenty of private coves breaking up the rocky coastline where you can soak up some quality beach time and gaze at the vibrant blues of the Aegean Sea.
