Kalymnos is a little island located in the Southern Aegean Sea a barren island of rock for some, but it's reality is a plethora of wild medicinal and culinary herbs unlike anything else. It's harsh climate produces plants that are hearty. They have to, to survive. Because of this the strength and power of the plants is second to none.
Thyme, Sage, Oregano, Saint John's Wort, Life Everlasting the list is seemingly endless all grow here in profusion. The summer is dry, it normally never rains from March until late September or October. The winters are cold and rainy, sometimes one wonders will the rain ever stop. But this is some of what makes the floral and fauna on the island what it is. Bare rock mountains with bits of soil, here and there, but then for the plants here that is what makes them so strong. Thyme for example needs the heat and the essential oils contained within them is intense. It's why the Honey from Kalymnos has been known and famous since Homer. It's dark and filled with the essence of Thyme and has no comparison to Thyme Honey found elsewhere in Greece. One thing is certain, you'll be glad you did and many come back for more when they revisit Kalymnos! ￼
