HEALTH CARE INFO
Pserimos (Greek: Ψέριμος), also called Capari, is one of the smallest islands of the southern Aegean, the Dodecanese islands, and is located between Kos and Kalymnos, to which it belongs administratively, at a distance of 4.2 n. m. from the first and 6 n. m. southeast of the second. Having 11 islands near it (Plati, Nekropothiki, Exopetra, Krevvatia, Vasiliki, Ligio, Mermigas, Gialos and two anonymous) we can say that it is a multifaceted complex. Pserimos was, along with the surrounding islets, the "Kalidnas islands" as mentioned by Homer. Plinios calls it Pserema, so we know its name is old and has been preserved for centuries. The area of Pserimos is 15 Km2, it has many low hills and small valleys with abundant olive trees, mostly cultivated by the inhabitants. Due to the low vegetation, the native extraordinarily fragrant caper, for whom the island was famous since antiquity, is abundant. Peaceful quiet beaches are the attraction of visitors during the summer months. There are no roads on the island and there are no cars. The only settlement on the island is Avlakia, where its harbor is located.
