The island of Nera is situated close to Kalymnos just across from the village of Vlihadia. There is not much on the island: a little jetty, a building that used to be a taverna and the Church of the Holy Cross. the Church was part of n old monastery that has been abandoned for quite some time. The island is relatively small and can be visited in a few hours. There are a couple of small beaches that are quite remarkable with their clear blue inviting waters. There are plenty of seagulls on the island as they seem to gather there to breed and nest, and they tend to get all wired up when humans appear to disturb their peace. The abundance of trees and an olive grove near the church seem to indicate that there is some water on the island which would explain its name (Nera = waters in Greek).

Here are some pictures to wet your appetite...
