Telendos travel, tourism info

Telendos belongs to the Dodecanese Islands and is located west of Kalymnos, approximately 900m from the coast. It is a barren, rocky island, except the plain at the base of the peninsula that forms the southeastern side of Telendos behind the featured traditional village, which extends along the east-southeast coast. Telendos was once united with Kalymnos. The two islands were separated after a powerful earthquake in 535 AD, where sank the intermediate section, along with the entire city of ancient Pothaias (the capital of  Telendos), as reported by the chroniclers. The island is considered by many to be the perfect getaway island.
