Kimolos is located between the more well-known Sifnos and Milos. The main village is located a short 15’ walk from Psathi harbour and is the highlight of the island. As you walk towards the main square, an unbelievable sight keeps unfolding in front of your eyes; picturesque flower-decorated corners, a beautiful church, cheerful children playing around freely until past midnight, people of every age socializing in the outdoors, intense smells from the tavernas, the genuinely friendly locals, all combine for the creation of an unparalleled, almost movie-like setting.
There are several trekking routes around Kimolos. Most of them start at the main village and will lead you to spectacular, pristine beaches. You can swim in the turquoise waters of Gerakias and Pelekiti caves, Soufi beach, and then try the hot springs at Agioklima. Prasa beach is a popular destination for yachties. If you are into scuba diving, you can rent your equipment from the nearby Pollonia in Milos and head to the Ellinika beach to explore the visible remains of the submerged ancient town and the gorgeous underwater meadows.
The uninhabited Polyaigos
Polyaigos (meaning: many goats) belongs to the Greek Orthodox church that sublets the island to farmers from nearby islands. Effectively, goats are the only permanent inhabitants here. There is a plethora of swimming spots; notably, those at the south side of the island, featuring large white & red rocks and crystal azure waters. If you are lucky you may be able to spot the seals hiding in the numerous caves surrounding the island. Spending the night here is an option, but it would be a pity to miss the wonderful Kimolos.
