The Beach is the only crag on Kalymnos that actually sits above a beach. The north coast location evokes an edge-of-the-world feeling and the sector is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and family picnics after climbing. The only drawback is that a lot of trash is washed ashore by the waves in wintertime.
A crag just above a small beach for combining climbing and swimming. Sharp grey slabs on left, red overhangs on right.
On the left, pleasant if sharp (or too sharp) grey slabs. On the right, athletic climbing on better, gently overhanging red, white, and orange rock.
Cool. Good for climbing on breezy summer afternoons.

Very good, but bring hats. The path is in the sun.
The routes at far right (24–28) are approximately 40m to the right of route krabbe, behind a huge boulder. This small north-facing orange cliff offers some beautiful flowstone and technical dynamic climbing on tufa flakes, cracks, and other unusual features. There’s only a handful of routes at this writing, but they are all excellent. Bonus: the cliff
stays in the shade all day.
