Pserimos photo gallery by DABS BANNER

Pserimos is an islet located between Kos and Kalymnos, about six nautical miles north of Kos and close to the Turkish coast. The total area is only about 15sq km and there is only a handful of permanent residents, around 100 who rely on fishing and tourism.
The island is a popular destination for tourists who arrive from Kos or Kalymnos on small excursion boats or pirate-type tourist ships that arrive daily throughout the summer. There is also a daily boat from Pothia, in Kalymnos, that carries provisions, taverna workers and a few early morning tourists. Pserimos is a good day out for those wishing to avoid organised beaches of Kos or Kalymnos but the beach, though large, can get crowded once all the day trip boats arrive.
The beach is wide, deep, very sandy with shallow waters well sheltered in the deep bay and lined with beachside tavernas and cafes that catch the daily trade. There is a small harbour for boat mooring. There's not much to see beside the single sandy beach though tracks lead over the rocky treeless hills to small coves. Those tourists who want to extend the day excursion can usually find rooms to let.
