Description

Telendos is a small island that sits off the northwestern shore of Kalymnos. The island was part of Kalymnos until the mid 6th century A.D., when an earthquake collapsed the land bridge. Telendos is free of roads and has a very sleepy feel.
There are a variety of crags on the island, caves, vertical walls, and even a long adventurous climb to the top of the north face. The Three Caves sit above the small town and are easy seen from Armeos, Masouri, and Myrties. With crags on all sides of the island one is sure to find the aspect they are looking for.

Getting There

There are many ferries (small fishing boats really) that leave from Myrties jetty many times during the day. The boat ride is about 10 minutes and ends at the sleepy hamlet of Telendos. From here you can either walk to the crags, or take a boat that drops you off at the base of Irox sector. The boat to the crags takes just a few minutes and leaves the hamlet at 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00, with return trips at 17:00, 18:00, and 19:00. Captain Yiannis charges 3 euro each way.
