Pserimos is a small island E of Kalymnos and N of Kos. It is subject to very violent gusts. The island has some lovely beaches. Approaches to Pharmakonisi are straightforward but with the meltemi there are violent gusts. The small village of Pserimos is situated in a cove on the W side of the island. The cove is somewhat protected from the meltemi but is subject to considerable swell. Unfortunately, during the summer days the little cove is very crowded by noisy day-trip caiques from Kos, and there is hardly any room for a yacht. Caution: There is a reef N of Cape Sphuri.
