Leros Guide

The Greek island of Leros is one of the Dodecanese islands that are located in the Aegean Sea, and is around 200 km from the port of Piraeus. Leros is close to the neighbouring islands of Patmos, Lipsi, Kalymnos, Agia Kyriaki and Farmakos. The small island, measuring around 74 sq. km, has a population of just under 8,000 residents, which doubles during the summer in order to cater for visiting tourists. The beaches of Partheni and Blefouti in the north of the island are popular with tourists, as are the beaches of Gourna, Kokali and Ayia Isidoros on the west side of the island and the large bay of Alinda in the central eastern part of the island. The bay of Alinda is also home to Pangias and Crithoni beaches. The picturesque port of Agia Marina lies to the south east of the bay of Alinda, which is around a 10 minute walk to Platanos, the heart of the island.

The journey time from Piraeus to the island by ferry is around 11 hours. Leros also has also daily connections by conventional ferry and hydrofoil to most of the Greek islands of Dodecanese like Patmos, Lipsi, Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Symi and Nisyros. There are also weekly connection to some of the islands of the Cyclades like Syros and Amorgos.

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.
