Kasos Guide

The Greek island of Kasos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the south east Aegean Sea. The island is located to the south west of the island of Karpathos, between Karpathos and Crete. The small island, which measures around 50 sq. km, only has about 1,000 inhabitants and is quite mountainous with the highest peak standing at 550m above sea level. Worth exploring are the island's 5 villages which are: Fry, Agia Marina, Panagia, Poli and Arvanitochori. The island's port can be found in the village of Fry. The island has managed to retain its natural identity mainly because of the lack of large scale tourism. Visitors to the island will love the quality of its fish, locally produced cheeses and its friendly hospitality.

There are around 100 churches on the island which bears testament to the island's deep religious beliefs. Worth visiting is the church of Agios Spiridonas, the complex of six churches in Panagia village and the church of Agios Georgios, which is now regarded as the protector of the island.

The island can be reached by ferry via Piraeus, Crete (Siteia, Agios Nikolaos), Rhodes, Halki and Karpathos.

Kalymnos Guide

The Greek island of Kalymnos lies in the south east Aegean Sea and is located between the islands of Kos and Leros, and is one of the Dodecanese group of islands. The island is quite small with a land area of just over 100 sq. km but despite this it is the fourth largest of all the Dodecanese islands. The island's name has changed over its history. It was first named Kalynda, then Kalymna and then finally, Kalymnos. The island's capital is Pothis, although the most of the island's residents live in Chora, and is the island's second largest town.

Kalymnos is known for its sponge divers and sponge fisheries and it's inland terrain is steep and rocky and is popular with climbers. There are over 1,300 different climbing routes on the island that range in difficulty and terrain. Some routes are on slabs, some on big walls or on overhangs. The landscape used to be a curse for the island's residents but as it attracts visitors to the island it is now a blessing, certainly in terms of tourism.

There is a frequent ferry service to Piraeus, Rhodes and to the other Dodecanese islands. There are also ferry routes operating to the Cyclades islands, Samos and, during the summer season, to Chios, Mytilini, and Thessaloniki.
