Palis Υialos

Platis Υialos is a wide beach on the west side of Kalymnos. Although very popular with locals, it is not usually overcrowded as it is off the tourist track. It is located near the village of Panormos, offering great view of the Aegean Sea and the opposite islet of Agia Kyriaki. What sets off Platis Yialos from other beaches on Kalymnos is its coast which is covered with dark sand and pebbles, a reminder that this part of the Aegean is still volcanic. The water is blue and incredibly clean but it becomes suddenly deep, so it is not suitable for young kids. The beach is vulnerable to winds and often the sea is rough. It has an interesting seabed, ideal for snorkeling. On the beach there are some rocks from where the most daring can dive. Platis Yialos is also known for the amazing sunsets that one can enjoy from the coast.

The beaches of Linaria and Kantouni lie to the south, not far from Platis Yialos. Platis Yialos does have food and drink facilities close by. Parasols and sunbeds for hire are also available. Above the beach lies the village of the same name where there are several hotels and some private rooms to rent.
