Myrties is a tourist seaside village located on the western side of Kalymnos island, Dodecanese. It is found 8 km from Pothia, the capital town, and has many tourist facilities, including hotels, studios, taverns, car and bike rentals. In front of the village is a nice beach of 700 meters with soft, white pebbles and crystal waters. The water at the beach of Myrties is relatively shallow, therefore it is great for families with kids.
Just opposite the village of Myrties is the small island of Telendos, a relaxing place with naturist beaches, fresh fish food and popular rock climbing spots. In summer, there are daily and regular boat trips from Myrties to Telendos island.
