The name Chalki is derived from the word “chalkos” which means copper. In the past there were copper mines on the island, hence this name. In the 19th century the island experienced enormous prosperity through the trade in sponges and it was the inhabitants of Chalki who were the first in Greece to do sponge diving as a profession.
