There are plenty of smaller islands in the area around Kos. Nisyros is easily accessible from Kardamena and for those staying in the area a day trip is practically a must. Kalymnos and Pserimos are easily reached from Mastichari and alternatively from Kos Town. The trip is much shorter from Mastichari which is preferable in my mind as you should try and spend as much time as possible in either Kalymnos or Pserimos. A nice alternative that allows you to see a bit of everything is the three island tour out of either Masticha4i or Kos Town that will take you to Kalymnos, Platy, and Pserimos. The added plus of these boat trips is that you usually get to see some dolphins between Kalymnos and Platy. Some boat trips out of Mastichari sometimes include Nera which is a wonderful little island. Last but not least there is the option of Telendos which you can reach from Kalymnos (there is a boat very 30 minutes out of Myrties). It is a small island that is ideal for a relaxing day or even week if you are up to it. Please follow the links hereby included to get some more information on the islands mentioned above. You can also go to the “other islands” section of the site where you can also find information about some other island (Leros, Lipsoi, Gyali, Levitha, Kandeleousa…). I will be constantly adding posts to this section as there are plenty of things to see and do on most of these islands.
