Kalymnos is a climber's paradise, with its picturesque landscapes and challenging rock formations. Climbing enthusiasts flock to this island in Greece to test their limits and push themselves to new heights. However, even the most avid climbers need to rest and recharge their batteries after a few days of intensive climbing.
While most people would opt for a relaxing day at the beach or a quiet stroll around the island, some adventurers choose to explore other options. That's exactly what we did. Instead of taking a break, we decided to switch things up and go kayaking in Rina port, Vathi village.
At first, it seemed like a risky choice. After all, kayaking is not exactly a low-intensity activity, and it requires a lot of physical exertion. But we were determined to make the most of our time on the island, and we were rewarded with a truly magical experience.
The port of Rina is a hidden gem, full of secret beaches and caves waiting to be explored. With our rented kayaks and dry bags, we set off to discover new places and push our limits once again. The crystal-clear waters, the breath-taking views, and the fresh sea breeze were invigorating, and we soon forgot all about our sore muscles.
After a few hours of kayaking, we returned to our base in Vathi village feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. It was a welcome break from the intensity of climbing, and we were grateful for the opportunity to explore Kalymnos in a different way. While kayaking may not be the typical rest activity after climbing for days, it was a perfect reminder that there are always new experiences to be had, and new adventures to be discovered.
