Kalymnos Island

Masouri, Greece

Hang onto that crag like a stalactite, dig your toes into the rocks like a Greek mountain goat … and hope your friends have a good hold on your rope. Here on the island of Kalymnos, the old sponge fishermen of the past have made room for modern-day rock climbers who scale Kalymnos’s precipices like titans ascending Mount Olympus. Climbers love this Greek isle for its easy lifestyle, milder temperatures and the views of the Aegean Sea that make you feel like a god.
