Kalymnos | Arginonta Beach


On an island such as Kalymnos the quietest
and calmest beaches may not be the softest. Kalymnos is a rocky island and most of beaches
tend to be on the pebbly side. If you don’t mind that, and need a little
remoteness to chill out, try Arginonta beach in the northwest of the island. It’s in a
small and sheltered cove that hasn’t got much in the way of vegetation but has reasonable
and good road access. Arginonta beach is where the main westbound
road from the main port of Pothia hits the west coast between Masouri and Emborio, about
15 kilometres from the port. There are sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, and a view across
the strait to the fascinatingly-shaped island of Telendos. Because of its sheltered location, the water
at Argoninta beach is calm and shallow for a good way out.
