Vathi (Kalymnos): The harbour

Vathi (Kalymnos): The harbour

This picturesque village lies at the end of one of the two green valleys on Kalymnos (the other is at Pothia).

Entering the bay through it’s fjord like entrance, you can see the orange and lemon trees stretching up the lush hillsides.

The village that now stands on what was once the settlement of Rina is a simple affair. You’ll find basic provisions and there are a handful of restaurants to chose from.

For the energetic, there are some pleasant walks on offer and there are some minor ruins and a prehistoric cave in the area if you need something to aim for. However, this is a great place to just sit in the shade of the bougainvillea with a cold beer and watch the fishermen coming and going.
