The small island belongs to the Dodecanese complex and is located between Kos and Kalymnos. It is also known as Kapari because the land is full of capers. Pserimos has a few inhabitants whose main activities are fishing and looking after the olive trees. Every summer many tourists arrive from Kos and Kalymnos to spend a few days in the numbered rooms to rent or just for a day trip.
