Greek flags are everywhere, fluttering in the wind or painted on walls and rocks. Avlaki is the port, the village, and the hub of Pserimos. Here you can find rooms for rent, tavernas, a single supermarket, and a long stretch of beach with golden sand and limpid waters. There are also many remote beaches around the back: Vathis, Panaghia Grafiotissa, and Marathontas have sand and fine shingle, lapped by blue waters.
Next to Pserimos is the uninhabited islet of Platy. Platy has some small but very clean beaches, visited by those who come with their own boat. The waters of Platy are considered to be among the most clear of the Dodecanese. At the northern end of the Islet of Platy, but also in the south, two German ships are submerged, carrying munitions on May 14, 1944.
The island of sponge divers - this is how they refer to Kalymnos, as sponge diving is one of the main occupations on the island and also a significant source of income. Vathy is an incredibly charming fishing village with four or five tavernas, pensions and supermarkets, sponge sellers (of course), and a cozy waterfront promenade. A long, slender inlet, resembling a fjord, leads us to the port of Rina, where fishing boats and sailboats share the space. The water is delightful to swim in.
Pezonda Beach lies on the east coast of Kalymnos. It's a small beach, nestled in a bay and only accessible from the sea. In the seabed of Pezonda, and not in great depth, there are projectiles that were launched by planes during WWII. We visit the bay for a short swim and enjoy the privacy.
This amazing beach of Kalymnos was only accessible by boat for many years. It still maintains the same relaxed and easy-going vibes. It is a small, beautiful, and quiet beach. The coast is covered with pebbles, and the water is crystal-clear and deep blue.
Kastri island, situated in the Kefalos Bay this little island stands out with its picturesque little church. It is one of the most famous landmarks on the island and a must see for every visitor. One can easily swim across and visit the island and/or dive from its rocky shores into the deep blue waters of the Aegean. Some remains of an old castle lie on top of this rocky islet that used to guard the bay from enemies and pirates. On the other side, there is a small chapel in blue and white colors dedicated to Saint Nicolas, the saint protector of sailormen.
Yali Island is a small island located in the Aegean Sea. It is a popular destination for boat trips due to its serene atmosphere, crystal-clear waters, and beautiful natural scenery. The island has several secluded coves and sandy beaches that are perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling. Additionally, there are restaurants and cafes on the island that serve traditional Turkish cuisine. Yali Island is also home to ancient ruins that are worth exploring, including a temple, theater, tombs, and other structures dating back to the Hellenistic period. Overall, Yali Island is a great stop on a boat trip in the Aegean Sea for those looking to enjoy the natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere of the area.
Nisyros is a volcanic island in the Aegean Sea with a fascinating geological history. The island is home to a dormant volcano that last erupted in the late 19th century, leaving behind a unique landscape of craters, hot springs, and other volcanic formations. The town of Mandraki, which is the capital and main port of the island, is a charming place to explore with its narrow streets, traditional houses, and picturesque squares. Visitors can enjoy lunch or coffee at one of the local tavernas and cafes while taking in the island's relaxed and laid-back atmosphere. The island also offers hiking opportunities with several trails that lead to the volcano's crater, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding Aegean Sea.
Kos, Thermal springs
The location boasts raw, rustic, and beautiful scenery. We swim towards a small rock pool that invites people to dive straight in. Even though it’s really hot at first- especially when you initially step in- the best thing is to immerse yourself in the hot water and allow your body to relax and enjoy the experience. The water originates from a hot spring in the mountains and flows down to meet the ocean at the natural sea pool. As the hot water mixes with the seawater, it creates a lovely, relaxing bath.
