Kalamos is surprising us

On the north side of Kalamos island is a nice quit bay with a little harbour for fisher boats. Surprisingly, there is one of the best and romantic restaurants in the sailing area..Varka.. with very special Mediterranean wines, fresh fish and dishes made from local products. We can bring you to this little paradise.


Kalamos /Κάλαμος, "reed, reed pen"; Latin Calamus) is a Greek mythological figure. He is son of Maiandros, the god of the Meander river. The Mythology story ; in Nonnus 's Dionysiaca tells about the love of two youths, Kalamos and Karpos, the son of Zephyrus and Chloris. Karpos drowned in the Meander river while the two were competing in a swimming contest. In his grief, Kalamos allowed himself to drown also. He was then transformed into a water reed, whose rustling in the wind was interpreted as a sigh of lamentation.
