In 554 AD after a powerful earthquake Telendos severed from Kalymnos.
Currently, Telendos is less than 1 km from Myrties village and has frequent connection by caique (boats).
The Byzantine settlement of Agios Konstantinos, the ruins of Basilica of St. Basil, early Christian baths and cemeteries are testimonies of the island’s rich history.
